A genuinely transitional story was that of Arthur Berlet, whose alleged 1958 encounter surfaced in 1965. The story begins with classic abduction motifs: stunned by a beam of light, doorway amnesia, wakes up on a bed in a strange environment. Thereafter the story trails off into an exceptionally dull narrative of his adventures on the planet Acart, to where he had been abducted by an insubordinate saucer captain who wanted him to tend the biological specimens. On Acart the contrite leadership gave him a guided tour while expounding on the population explosion.
Just some information I came across: Wendelle Stevens also put out a book titled something like "Contact from Planet Acart". This book was about a person from earth who was picked up and taken to this planet for many days.
"...After that, we went to the trees and sat down comfortably on some stools similar to chairs that rotated. I put my hands behind my head and, thus remained for some minutes. But in that calm, I commenced to reflect and I saw in my mind an infinity of things that I was still unable to explain satisfactorily. Brusquely, I raised my body and remained seated, resolving to ask Acorc to explain some of these things that I did not understand.
One of these was that, since I had come to Akart, I still had not seen anybody pullout money to pay for anything. We had just eaten a meal with nearly 1,000 people and nobody had paid anything.
With relation to us, I had some kind of explanation, since we had that paper, which could perhaps be a form of requisition by the government; but... the rest?
To clear up this doubt I asked:
"What kind of money do you have here?"
He raised up and sat in the same position as I, right in front of me and said:
"Money? We have no money here on Akart."
I almost fell on my back, stool and all.
"But how?! But how do they buy things, and pay their employees?"
He gave a sigh and responded:
"Well, this is a very lengthy affair, but I will try to explain to you. Akart was all divided up into countries and each one had their own type of government and money. That being the case when they began to feel the problems of overpopulation, those better off commenced to acquire every palm of our land and thus, those who had money obtained and owned more space than they needed to live, while those less favored by fortune were banished to the streets. This resulted in dishonesty, robberies, several wars, and all the rest.
Always because of the evils of money. The whole planet was an inferno; a few survived and others in greater number died of hunger, misery and pains. Then when it seemed like all was lost, there emerged the greatest scientist of all times here on Akart."
"And what did he do?"
"He discovered the means to take advantage of the very energy of the Sun."
"What did that have to do with the money situation?"
"Many things. Once discovered, he and two more of his followers, invented the arms which we still have."
"Was he rich or poor?"
"Very rich, but he spent all his fortunes on investigations and experiments which resulted in benefits for all."
"In what manner?"
"In the following way: When he succeeded in inventing the neutralizer (beam weapon), he told nobody of his invention, but gave adequate proof of what he could do with such a weapon. He threatened all of the countries, that if they could not find a common denominator for their differences, he would use the weapon. He presented a global plan for the salvation of the planet. Then all or almost all accepted and obeyed him. His first step was to abolish all the frontiers, making all of Akart only one country; the second was to level all of the cities to equal rights and obligations. To obtain this, he had to get rid of the money, and this automatically ended profits, speculations, robbery, usury and many other things, proceeding from money."
"Then he must have been some kind of dictator?"
"No, he did not become directly the Government, but nevertheless gave ideas to others who then put them into practice."
"Certainly he depended on the support of some strong country?"
"No. It is as I said. Ninety percent of the population of Akart lived in oppression and misery, and thus they understood his ideas and supported him. The remaining ten percent could do nothing, and finally, they accepted also. And as the people helped to install this regime, the sane people had the right to select their governors. They proposed that the scientist be selected, but he would not accept, however he indicated one son of his. That one was selected and became the first Governor of all of Akart. Since the scientist was called the man of the Sun, thanks to his discoveries, his son was called the Son of the Sun. From this proceeded the tradition of calling our president the 'Son of the Sun'."
"Ah! For that reason?"
"That is it."
"I thought it was a sacred name."
"No. It is not, as you can see."
"When and for how long is the governor of Akart then selected?"
"Every three years (Akartian)." (= 5 Earth years and 6 Earth months.)
"But how can you get along without money to buy or sell the things? How do you do it?"
"Here, nobody needs to buy or sell anything. There is enough work (for those who are apt) that they can have all that they need or desire, without the immoralities. Here, it is a crime for anyone to refuse to work. We came to the conclusion, that money is the work of the evil doings. Without it many evils are avoided."
"Are they obligated to work until after they are old?"
"No. The people work so many hours per day or night and for the hours that are left, they can go where they like, eat or drink in any public place, without extravagances, and do as they please. In every year there is a period of rest; then they can travel throughout all of Akart -- and see and do what they please, traveling by whatever means they prefer. For this there is enough available, which is furnished by the Government. And they have more: What one citizen has, they all have, because here all that is produced obeys a global plan; such as homes, the ships, dress, alimentation, etc."
"Up to what age do they have to work?
"It is like this: Until 11 years (Akartian) they have to study; from there forward they are going to work in a profession which was approved by the schools; They work until 36 years (Akartian) and after that retire. Then, they can stay in one place the rest of their life, or travel wherever they want, live in one fixed place or live in a hotel, or various hotels, as they choose. They have all the assistance and attention they require for the rest of their life."
"Is this law also for women?"
"Well, the women also study up till 11 years; and after that then they may marry and care for a home, or if they do not want to do that, they are obligated to work according to their profession." ...
(Note: When they go on interplanetary voyages, their laws stipulate that it is a crime to bring back terrestrials on the planet they visit, back to Akart. The commander of the ship that brought the earthman, Artur, to Akart, he was demoted in rank to an operator.)
"I don’t understand how the commander of an interplanetary ship, of such high position, could pass to become an operator, because of an unfortunate such as I? "
"Yes, because our laws concerning the terrestrials is as follows: We must not touch nor kill, still less bring one from another planet back to Akart, as it your case. Here the laws are made by man, and those that disobey must pay for their disobedience. "
"I thought that a functionary of such high position would have some rights."
"No! Here we have neither highs nor lows. All are as equals, even the Son of the Sun (their governor). When he finishes his days as governor, for which he was selected by all the people, he will return to the plow the fields, if that is from where he had come. "
"What are these mines of solar steel? "
"Solar steel is a special steel whose utility, I believe, still has not been discovered on Earth. It is of that which we make our solar ships, like that in which you traveled with me, and other things as well. It has many other uses." ...
The Akart ETs spoke very briefly in the 1950s about the then three
factions. Today, there are four factions.
Until the 1950s prior, there were two rival factions. Emerging
later was a third faction, but the third was still sketchy.
The Akart ETs have been silent for many years now. They are still
monitoring the planet Earth. They believe that we waste too much
time fighting, and should have been at peace long ago.
THEY WILL COME AFTER OUR ATOMIC WAR TO BRING ORDER
"We are not exactly unaware that there on your Earth, there exist two or
more factions which are in conflict, and all possess atomic bombs, with
high destructive power, and they continue to make more all the time, and
of greater scale. If instead of using the nuclear energy for destructive
ends and they used it constructively, our hopes would be nullified."
"To inhabit the Earth."
"Are you saying that you intend to invade the Earth?"
"Yes, but as I have already said, not on those terms. Let me explain in
what manner. You must be aware that an atomic war on Earth is
inevitable, and, even if we wanted to instigate it, we could, since it
would only be necessary to intercept an airplane or ship of either
faction, that the one would judge that it was the other. But, we are not
going to intervene in any such manner, because we have come to the
conclusion that they would not resist for much time the curiosity to see
the foul-up that caused the situation, and, when this happens, none of
them will escape the devastation, because with only a few of those
bombs, the whole terrestrial globe will be contaminated. Once this
happens, we can peacefully take over the whole planet, because those few
who remain will be in no position to offer resistance; on the contrary,
they will welcome us."
"But what future is there when the terrestrial globe contaminated by
destruction and radioactive poison?"
"Whether it is contaminated constitutes no problem for us."
"Because, here we have an apparatus which neutralizes the malefic
effects of radioactive poison, transforming it into fertilizer for the
soil and other things."
"If such a war happened, how much time would you wait before going into
"We would go into action as soon as the war ended, because it would cost
us to wait, as the vegetation would all die in the zones of
"And if there was a victor who had not suffered either human or material
"There is no victor in such a war. They would attack each other
mutually; we are certain of this, because we know all the secrets of the
terrestrials, against which they know practically nothing concerning
"But if I tell them what is here, and what I have seen and heard on
"Not tomorrow, I give you all the reason when I say that nobody is going
to want to believe you."
"What suddenly interests me is that which awakened the Son of the Sun
and the Council, when from one moment to the next, after finding danger
in my return to Earth, he asked me to make a written account of all that
I saw, heard and felt here, and to try to divulge it? Perhaps it was to
test my loyalty?"
"I can tell you that it was not for that; we are interested in a large
part of the terrestrials having knowledge of some possible narrative of
yours in this respect, and, as is to be hoped, nobody is going to
believe it at this time."
"Why not at this time?"
"Because they are only going to believe when some of these facts have
"How will this benefit them and when?"
"When they come out of the war and we appear on the Earth. The few who
survive, due to your knowledgeable aid, will know something of our
system of government, our manner of life and being, and thus will not
offer us resistance, which would be useless to try."
(NOTE: The Akartians maintain a base here on Earth for some centuries
now. And ever so often they rotate their staff there. They have built a
huge space platform several miles in diameter some distance away from
their home planet. This station they use as a stop over point, to station
thousands of space ships, etc. Their spaceships travel over 311 miles
per second or over 18,660 miles per minute. This group has anti-matter beam
weapons. Earth terrestrials will not have anti-matter beam weapons
until about the year 2990 A.D. and it is this weapon they will use to
vaporize the planet Mars from the Sol System in a brutal interplanetary war.
It will be the last war the earthman fight, before he realizes peace
is the only way.)
"I would like to broaden the question on one point: Are you saying that
you are going to come as owners of the house, and not as rangers, is
"Well, I have already said that we are not going to do anything bad to
anybody. Now, once you have done the mischief by your hands, nothing is
more logical than that we benefit you. We Akartians, by force of
circumstances, have learned to be realists. This question is comparable
with a fable that my father always told when I was a boy, which is as
"A man who had innumerable cages thought it well to place birds in
almost all of them. He had two hanging one beside the other. In these
two cages the birds were multiplying; one came to the point where there
was no more room for more, but they lived well adjusted and were each
contented with a place to sit. Thus all those that the man allowed to
hatch, also were given the means to live.
Contrary to the first, the second, had plenty of space, however they commenced to quarrel; each one
wanted the better place; the stronger lived comfortably and the weak had
to get used to the corners and be satisfied with the crumbs. The roost
there was left to the strong. Each one wanted to be better and to
control. Finally a struggle broke out, so fierce that they mutually
destroyed each other, and with them also most of the weak ones, who had
nothing to do with this. The man, on seeing this, gave access to those
of the other cage of which he moved half to the first. These went there
and reconstructed the broken nests, resuscitating some of those who had
escaped with their lives, and thus they were able to live in peace for
many years, without worrying about the problem of space, as much in one
cage as the other."
"I understand the moral, unhappily for us terrestrials, perhaps this
same thing is going to come to pass. It is somewhat similar to Earth and
Akart." I said with my head down.
After some minutes of silence between us, I asked:
"Do you, sir, not feel that you have erred in showing and explaining to
me, all this with respect to your arms and means of locomotion? Since
once I return to Earth, if I am given the time to do this in the manner
in which you have explained all, I think the government would give me
the necessary means, and I have the impression that I could come to a
He swallowed dryly and leaned back to respond; and then between
reprimanding and fear, he said:
"Well, in the first place, I believe you are not even thinking of doing
this; and second, the terrestrials at the moment do not have materials
to this end at their disposal. But, please, do not speak to me of
similar things anymore, because if anyone here suspected what we are
doing, perhaps you would have to live here on Akart the rest of your
days of life. I cannot say anything more, because I cannot judge their
capabilities, neither in one thing or another."
Only then was it that I saw where I had put myself with my foolish
suppositions, and I responded:
"But it is not that I judge myself capable of this. It is scarcely a
"This I know, but you are not going to want to nuke these suppositions
known to the Son of the Sun and the Council!"
Saying this, he stopped talking, and remained with the fingers of his
hands interlaced, pensive.
Also the contactperson Billy Meier got some on this planet:
Meier - ... How far outside our solar system is the next innabitated
system, and does that world's inhabitants know of our Earth?
Ptaah - The next inhabited system is around five light years away from
Earth. Different worlds in that system are inhabited by human forms of
life, who differ little from your races. In their development, they are
some years in advance of that of Earth human beings, spiritually as well
as technologically. They have already achieved space flight in primitive
form, and also do visit Earth. Because their cosmic flight capabilities
are very limited, they depend on assistance stations. Mid-way between
their world and Earth, they have constructed a space station, which you
can see far outside in space there (pointing to the viewing screen). They
need such stations because they are still unable to launch their ships
over large distances.
Also, connected to their space-flight now is severe body pain, from which
they narcotize themselves for longer journeys in the cosmos. Besides the
other races of these worlds, this one race comes often to Earth. This is
because their homeworld, which is no greater than Earth herself, suffers
from - OVERCROWDING -, and needs huge quantities of food. For this
reason, beings from that planet, called AKART come to Earth often, to
collect there plants, vegetables, fruits and grains, to nourish their
- 23 BILLION - population. They are mostly satisfied with taking seeds of
fruits, grains, and vegetables, and also plant stocks, to set out on AKART
- to grow there.
They collect more useable nourishment's on other (less populated) worlds
which they also visit often and periodically. In them selves, these forms
are of rather peaceful character, and have had to suffer much in the last
centuries. Today they live under a dictatorship, as you would call it, by
which they have relatively better living conditions. Their great problem
is their severe overcrowding, which they could relieve by emigration, but
their technologies have not solved space transportation on sufficient
scale to be of help.
(And we, on Earth, thought we have severeOvercrowding /Overpopulation...problems!! read how the IARGA planet solved this)
more information from Ptaah regarding Akart a few years ago:
"The population of that human-inhabited planet, Akart, about the same size as Earth, suddenly swelled with 62 Billion refugees, who arrived on Akart as refugees from wars in their own home systems. The population of Akart went up to an unbelievable number of 126 billion. Naturally, the planet could not support such a gigantic number of people and a pestilence broke out.
In only 18 months, 124.5 billion people died. This was called the "Time of the Great Death". The planet today has a population of 1.26 Billion, about 1 % of what it was before 99% were decimated.
