Australian investigator Phil Tindale, who witnessed an “air battle between two UFOs” 40 years ago and is interested in Scottish sightings, explains why he is convinced we are not alone.
Australian man Phil Tindale has good reason to have a strong interest in UFOs.
As 10-year-olds in the South Australian town of Aldgate just over 40 years ago, he and his twin brother Rob witnessed a “hostile chase between two highly advanced craft resulting in one of those craft crashing into a tree”.
The crash was reported by a third witness who was able to have a close look at the craft which resembled an “eight metre long yellow speed boat from it’s under side”.
However, by the time police arrived, the object had disappeared leaving only unexplained broken branches.
Phil recently contacted The Courier from Australia after reading a Courier feature online about renowned Scottish UFO investigator and self-confessed UFO sceptic Malcolm Robinson who believes that aliens have almost certainly visited Tayside and Fife.
Like Malcolm, Phil has concluded 95% of UFO sightings are explainable by “natural identifiable solutions”.
However, he also takes the view that 5% fall into the unexplained category.
Four decades on from his own experience, Malcolm says he is “100%” convinced what he saw was extra-terrestrial, and not military.
But he also believes the question is no longer “are we alone”. Instead we must ask “what is the alien agenda”?
“It’s a question that we have ignored for the past 70 years,” says Phil.
“Reported UFO cases date back to the 1500’s when a township in Germany witnessed a battle between celestial objects which was reported in the broadsheet journals of Nuremberg.
“From the 1940’s a new and increased wave of alien activity began.
“Pilots reported seeing strange spherical craft following them into battle during WW2.
“Known as the Foo Fighters, they were initially thought to be advanced Nazi technology.
“Later came the 1947 Roswell UFO crash, made famous by the military report printed in the local paper.
“The report was quickly redacted and replaced with an explanation involving a weather balloon.
“First hand witnesses have since validated the initial report, leading to an explosion of conspiracies.
“Then in 1961 came the first reported alien abduction.
“Betty and Barney Hill provided compelling and consistent testimonies of the incident which occurred along a roadside late at night.
“They described being taken on board a craft and subject to various procedures.
“Subsequent investigations seemed to verify the Hills experience, and left authorities scratching their heads.”
Phil says that since then mass sightings have been reported on numerous occasions.
One of the more compelling events occurred in 1994 in Zimbabwe at the town of Ruwa where a craft landed near the Ariel primary school.
No less than 60 people witnessed the event.
Not only was this a close encounter, it also involved alien contact.
Humanoid entities disembarked the craft and approached the children.
Some reported telepathic communication that included a warning about humanity’s destructive trajectory.
A number of investigators looked into the event including John E. Mack, head of Harvard Medical Psychiatry.
“The environmental message is now recognised as a common theme of the contact experience,” adds Phil.
“It is estimated that nearly 40% of people who have had alien contact receive some variation of an environmental message or warning.
“Mass sightings and high quality witnesses have been useful in confirming the reality of the alien presence, but it is the individual and detailed accounts that provide better insight into what is truly going on.
“The emerging picture is complex and incomplete. It shows multiple alien groups exist with different intentions, and varying degrees of interest in humanity’s well being, ranging from benevolent to hostile.
“Disagreement and even conflict between alien groups has been observed.
“Reports describe varying physical features, some are indistinguishable from humans.”
Phil tells how Terry Lovelace, a lawyer, describes a terrifying abduction while camping at Devils Den.
“It left himself and a friend badly burned by radiation,” says Phil.
“Both worked for the military at the time and both were brutally interrogated and humiliated by the army’s investigation unit.
“It was made clear to them that the event was not to be discussed ever again. Yet other people describe ongoing contact with entities that seem benevolent and appear to be concerned for our welfare.
“Many people are helped physically and spiritually by these contact events.
“Over half of all contact experiences are described as positive and nearly all communication is said to be telepathic.
“Telepathic ability seems to vary between alien groups, but it appears to be the galactic language.”
Abductees describe being “willed” to perform tasks or comply with requests. The experience resembles a compelling need to obey, or just a personal desire. These instructions are difficult to refuse.
Some abductees report using their own will power to deny the alien requests, but claim that it is considerably difficult to do so.
The glaring and unmistakable fact of this phenomenon is the scale and secrecy. Reports of alien contact and craft sightings are world-wide, but their operations are at the fringes of our awareness.
In May 2018, at Melkbosstrand South Africa, a witness described seeing a fleet of around 100 craft pop out of the sky and fly towards the horizon at incredible speed.
He described a point in the sky that looked “crinkled”, from this small area cloaked craft emerged.
Their colour matched the blue sky but not perfectly. Varying shapes and sizes entered our atmosphere a short distance from the witness, some so large, they covered as much as 90 degrees of his field of vision.
All were totally silent.
He also described a short conflict that occurred at the beginning of the event.
Three objects appeared to attack an emerging craft during the first few minutes.
It is not difficult to understand the secrecy, both from an extra-terrestrial perspective and from our own military’s point of view.
The knowledge of this reality affects every aspect of our society. It challenges our beliefs in religion, science and even politics.
“We are now faced with arguably the greatest challenge in human history, from a position of inferior technology and inferior mental ability,” says Phil.
“One consolation that comes to view is the common environmental interest that we share with these beings.
“Whether this intervention ultimately helps humanity or not our response will be paramount.
“Will this new reality change our view towards each other, can we learn to appreciate the creatures that we share our planet with, and appreciate the value of our own beautiful Earth?”
