|A Revisiting of the Gary Lowery Case
By Clyde Lewis
Gary Lowery has been a fire safety Instructor for 10 years in the Bakersfield area. He claims that he and his family have been terrorized by what he believes to be alien creatures. Every critic when hearing of an alien encounter would demand some sort of proof. What they didnít count on was just that.
In the fast paced society such as ours propaganda is being taken in and absorbed as news.
Some may think advertising is the only propaganda out there, however one needs to be aware that it takes money and psychological know how to get you to feel a certain way and to create us and them borders. Product X versus Product Y and so on.
It also can be used to thwart the truth from getting out.
Bad public relations sabotage is being used every day to circumvent the processes available to get you the true story because of lazy reporters who use public relations press releases as hot tips for news and information.
The use of smear campaigning is the oldest trick in the book to get you to disregard an opinion or a revelation that may or may not be a popular one.
This type of PR smearing has become a common tactic in the mainstream media. Anyone who questions the status quo usually will end up being the bane of the bullying and besting mentality that we have all too quickly have accepted here in the 21st century United States.
The mind is meant to explore many things and to entertain many ideas. It is also meant to file away all kinds of information from different sources, even ones that have been deemed unpopular by secret PR firms and companies who feel that they have a monopoly on what you should know or who you should receive your facts from regarding certain areas of study.
Once you see this public relations sabotage for what it is, it becomes less effective. However the unfortunate thing is that many people have allowed themselves to be fooled by those who are meant to be public trustees but are truly diabolical in getting you to hate or discredit someone.
There are many people who will tell you that Alien abduction stories are fabricated by people who want to make a lot of money. Critics claim that these stories are put together by people who are dullards. It is most often depicted in movies, TV shows and books that people who live in the back hills, or the sticks are the people who most often encounter little green men.
There are people who fabricate stories. A true investigator has to admit this. They cannot be a gullible believer and still hang on to credibility. In the same breath they cannot be ruthless debunkers. To dismiss all of the stories is disingenuous. That is why I believe that most people who claim to be skeptics are in reality debunkers.
Skeptics have open minds. They think openly with a caveat of analyzing things critically. They are not smug, or condescending and they look for the truth without being clouded by stories and ideas that only confirm or build up their agendas, and prejudices.
As humans we are often guided by our own prejudice. What we see is what we know. Our brains fill in the blanks with the philosophies that we have been indoctrinated with.
Have you ever wondered why no one can agree on what is paranormal and what isnít? Why it is that one person may laugh at you because of what you think you see or experience? Maybe itís because of terminology. Maybe its because your explanation makes them uncomfortable. They laugh at the thought of extraterrestrial visitations and yet pray to a God that lives in the sky and fear a devil that makes his home below the earth.
Have you ever wondered why there seems to be a conflict over who is telling the truth and who isnít? Why you believe in what you believe?
A lot of it has to do with the messenger. Does he or she have the charisma necessary to convince you that what he or she is saying is true?
Do they have money to buy that information? Do they have the resources to create a fraudulent situation? Do they willingly submit disinformation to fool you?
A recent story by London's Telegraph reported that a unique scientific experiment has produced startling evidence that some "spirit mediums" may actually have the paranormal talents they lay claim to.
The study was carried out at the University of Arizona (UA). Scientists there told the Telegraph that their findings are extraordinary and raise "fundamental questions about the survival of consciousness after death."
Up until now, if someone raised the topic of the "afterlife" in a discussion between mainstream scientists, it would be dismissed - or laughed at most likely. Those same scientists have always been prepared to place the label of self-deluded or charlatan on spiritual mediums. The new UA study - being billed as the first "serious" laboratory study of mediums - has found evidence that its subjects shared an uncanny ability to "state facts about the deceased relatives of people who come to them."
Lately I have seen so many articles and essays trying to disprove paranormal claims . from Spirit mediums to Abduction stories. People who write these essays place believers in such things as psychotics who hallucinate. The people who write them are not concerned with getting the truth out they are just fortifying their own prejudice with accounts and stories that fit into their agendas.
The Truth is hard to find. Opinions and rigidity of thought has actually done more to undermine our thinking. It has hampered our ability to see outside of the lines, outside the box. It holds us down and tells us that the sky is limited.
The sky is not the limit anymore.
Science and religion send out confusing messages.
Cynical Science will tell us that there are no other worlds outside this one yet from our vantage point we see worlds or kingdoms that exist in infinite numbers, from animals, to insects, bacteria and single celled organisms.
Religion tells us that in Godís hose there are many mansions. Many worlds and worlds with other sheep. In the same breath they tell us that these beings are not of God and that if you seek after aliens you are only seeking out demons. They still confirm the existence of many worlds.
With this thought in your head understand that worlds without number exist in various forms on this planet and with that fact blaring at you, it canít be too far of a stretch to consider the world beyond this one.
However it is becoming increasingly difficult to get information about that world, or to prove that the world even exists. Until then, it will always remain as the world that the poets, dreamers and philosophers have written about.
When we come close to proving that this world exists, there are those who wish to silence it, discredit it, devalue it, use it as a weapon, and debunk it.
In frustration I wrote a parable about the world inside a refrigerator and applied it metaphorically to our own existence and whether or not there is a world beyond this one. In a strange way it explains the plight of the experiencers and how each of their stories are unique yet they explain the very same phenomenon.
This little story is called the Parable of the Moldy Cheese.
A Mold on a piece of cheese was in a refrigerator overhearing the conversation between the other foods and was getting quite annoyed.
" I am so sick and tired of hearing these stories about the bright light and how all of you claim that you are being taken away and having horrible things done to you!" he groaned.
"I have seen nothing that proves that when the light comes on we go anywhere. I have been sitting here for the longest time and I havenít moved at all."
The green onion upon hearing the moldís irritating babble muttered Ė
"I know that when I see the light something strange happens, I heard a rumor that sometimes little green onions like me are taken out of our cool little home and are placed on huge tables and are diced into little pieces."
The milk bottle nodded and said,
"Oh yes I know what you mean, I see the bright light flash and then something takes out my liquids and then puts me back, Iíve had friends who have been drained completely and then they are thrown out into a huge holding area that crushes them eventually."
The moldy cheese scolded the milk bottle by saying,
"You sit in the dark, like all of us and you wouldnít be able to tell if you have sprung a leak? Milk Bottles like you spring leaks all the time, I believe that you are defective and that you are imagining things!"
Suddenly there was a burst of bright light and after the blindness subsided the moldy cheese noticed that a couple of Eggs had left.
The Mold on the Cheese began to wonder if he was being tricked and asked
"Are you trying to pull a fast one? Where are the other eggs, where did they go?"
The other eggs looked at each other and one spoke,
"They have been taken and they have been broken! A creature with large hands broke three and began to beat them! I then heard them sizzle in a horrible way and then we saw the bright light and ended up here."
The mold then said
"You see? You see? None of you can get your stories straight, The green onion claims that his buddies were diced after the light came on, The Milk bottle says that he is drained of his contents when the light comes on, and now the eggs are beaten and broken. Why do these things always happen to you when nothing is happening to me?"
The Milk bottle then said "It happens to everyone sooner or later, something we canít explain shakes us up and makes us wonder if we are alone, every experience is unique to you and everyone interprets it differently."
The Mold then said "Well thatís fine for you, but I havenít experienced anything out of the ordinary. There is nothing to show me that there is anything special here.
In unison the milk bottle, the green onion, and the eggs exclaimed
"What about the light in the sky?"
The mold quickly answered,
"The light appears all the time, I have been here the longest and as far as I can remember it has appeared and disappeared, it just happens, there is nothing causing it to happen it just is. The light and the cheese is all I know, and that is all I believe in and there is no leaky milk bottle, paranoid onion, or persecuted egg that will convince me otherwise!"
The Milk bottle, the green onion, and the eggs gave up in frustration. To the mold the cheese was the universe and no one could tell him that there was anything beyond it.
There are so many worlds within and without our own world that it can only stand to reason that perhaps we, like the mold in the parable are only seeing the cheese and not what is beyond it.
Do you think that the worms that eat a rotting corpse buried in the ground even fathom that above them is yet another world with other life? To the worms the corpse is the cosmos.
With this in mind how can we be so sure about what exists in our world? Do you base all knowledge on what can be seen with telescopes and microscopes? Do you look at history as fact even though it is nothing more that what a few people have agreed upon?
Do you agree with science even though its spectrum is limited and that perhaps it is nothing more than an organized system of ego and ignorance? Are you easily swayed by a television show, or radio talk show dealing with subjects so vague that anyone can put their interpretation to work to get you to act?
Much like Charles Fort I believe that this world is similar to a pantry or a refrigerator. A planet sized cupboard stocked with humans. Where every once in a while we are taken, and replaced, or taken forever to be put to use elsewhere.
We can be the victims of Human barbarism, or there can be something out of our control that looks at us from a distance and chooses us as prey. Whether it be for food, or for experimentation the idea of an unseen intruder is not at all farfetched. To think of it all the time can make you paranoid. Experiencing an attack dissolves all suspicion. A perfect knowledge of the predator takes away all paranoia.
If they are out to get you, and you have proof, you are not paranoid. You are a victim.
One such victim of an alleged attack is Gary Lowery.
Gary Lowery is a fire safety instructor from Bakersfield California who is being terrorized by creatures that he considers to be alien In nature. Lowery Claims that he was awakened by the sound of his bedroom closet doors creaking.. As he looked towards the closet , he was able to observe a "Silver Orb" it emitted a beam of light . The doors of the closet dematerialized. He then noticed a "purple bubbling forming. He thought it was a bad dream or a hallucination. He then saw a "bright white-blue structure" forming which resembled the number 7. Believe it or not this story when presented at the Bay Area UFO Expo sparked very little interest in UFO and alien investigators. Lowery also produced evidence of his encounter, video taped images, footprints, and what is believed to be a claw left behind by one of the creatures.
While Loweryís story was unfolding in the United States another Reptile alien encounter was happening in Australia.
A woman awoke to find a cross-carved into her arm and claw prints left behind on her mirror. Investigators were sampling the prints for DNA studies.
Barry Taylor who investigated the case claimed that the cross was drawn upright, appearing to have been applied with precision rather than a random application. A close look at the scratch shows a precise, delicate application with a fine sharp needle-like tool, as opposed to a claw or scratch from a cat, which they do not own. There was no redness on either side of the scratch, indicating a gentle application," says Taylor. "The lines are perfectly straight and equally extended from the center where the scratches cross, forming a perfect cross in all aspects.
Slender fingerprints were left on the mirror of the home and a full DNA sampling of the fingerprints produced no Human DNA.
After this story appeared the Lowery story began to spark the interest of a few more Ufologists but by this time Lowery had spoken with Lawyers and they told him to hold off on telling everyone about the story until conclusive tests were made on his evidence.
After the Lowery case had time to mellow, and after a successful media blackout that angered many Ufologists in the field including Peter Gersten of CAUS, Samples of the alien Claw that lowery produced as proof of his encounter were analyzed and the return results also determined that the claw was not human. There were some investigators who claimed that the proteins found in the claw were similar to a rodent of some kind.
In later reports Loweryís 9 year old daughter, told her father that she had discovered several marks on her chest. After an examination, it was found that the marks consisted of three rows of small needle penetrations evenly spaced and parallel.
Lowery also reported other strange anomalies such as things being misplaced and later found with a slimy substance coating it. Lowery also stated that he found blood and a strange plastic-like tube in his stool. He has videotaped his encounters and has collected all sorts of proof of his encounters. It will all be shown in a documentary to be released soon.
This article is a reworking of the "Parable of the Moldy Cheese" and "The Gary Lowery Story" for Ground Zero. The original editorial was reworked after updates had been made public about the Gary Lowery Case. Lowery will appear on Ground Zero to update us some more in this ongoing investigation.
