Dr. Jacques F. Vallee was a senior researcher at the DARPA-funded Augmentation Research Center at SRI at the very beginning of the RV program initiated by Dr. Puthoff and Russell Targ in 1971. Given his long-standing interest in consciousness research, he became informally associated with the program and is credited by Ingo Swann for suggesting the approach that led to the coordinate remote viewing protocol. In the mid-eighties, Dr. Vallee was brought back to SRI as a consultant. He was cleared for Grill Flame, went through formal training with Ingo Swann, and contributed to the methodology research that Dr. Ed May later led at SAIC. His experience spans the entire life of the program and gives him a special position as an observer and commentator on the reality of remote viewing.
Dr. Vallee also has long been interested in the UFO phenomenon and has earned the reputation of being one of the most rigorous and credible researchers in the field. He was the model for the French scientist figure played by Francois Truffaut in Steven Speilberg's classic film "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
In the first half of the program, George Knapp was joined by legendary Ufologist Jacques Vallee for a discussion on UFO sightings from biblical-era antiquity through the year 1879. Over the course of the conversation, he also talked about remote viewing and provided his take on the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH), crash retrievals and disclosure. In the latter half of the show, authors Richard Dolan and Bryce Zabel talked about their new book After Disclosure, which examines what life will be like after the reality of UFOs is revealed. ...

A special 4-hour show devoted to UFOs featured noted author and UFO researcher Jacques Vallee in the first half. Three of his classic works on alien contact were recently reprinted by Anomalist Books.He spoke about his investigation into a 1977 wave of sightings in the Brazilian Amazon. People were terrorized by small and large aerial objects, some of which shot out harmful beams. Intelligence officers from the Brazilian Air Force were brought in during the incidents, and a doctor treated around 40 people who were exposed to the beams, he reported.Too much emphasis has been placed on the Roswell Incident, which has a lot of contradictory testimony, Vallee commented. Cases which have yielded physical evidence have more scientific interest, he noted, detailing the study of a molten metal that was found after an unidentified aerial object was witnessed in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Vallee cast a critical eye on several other well-known UFO subjects. His study of the Billy Meier mat ... More »Host: George Noory
