masterpiece Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe may remember the scene where
Faust one night walk to a crossroads and encounter a fire-breathing dragon. A
ball of fire descends towards Faust and the ball is transformed into a monk. We
find similar stories in folklore, religion, mythology and today in
the cases documented by ufologists and
investigators of paranormal phenomena. Astonished witnesses describing balls of light suddenly transforming into some type of entity.
In UFO literature we can find hundreds of these type
of encounters. American ufologist Albert Rosales kindly made a search in his
extensive database on humanoid encounters, also published in several volumes.
Here are three examples:

Georges Gaudet and his wife were sleeping soundly when a bright beam of green
light entered the bedroom through the open window, awakening the wife. The
green light seemed to transform itself into a 4 ft tall humanoid wearing a
silvery combination suit, and a helmet with a dark visor, the figure was
totally encased in a green glow. Gaudet’s wife stared at the figure and
attempted to wake her husband to no avail. The figure then vanished in a flash
of light. She suffered from headaches and insomnia for a week after the

A woman who lived in a house surrounded by a sturdy iron fence that made it
impossible to enter without knocking (or ringing) apart from which she had
several rather fierce dogs that had the run of the garden and the small orchard
(or kitchen garden) around it, preventing any stranger from coming in, reported
that one evening she was alerted by the vehement barking of the dogs, she
looked out the door of the garden and saw with astonishment that the dogs were
barking at a type of simian—and not a small one, at that—that was sitting
on top of a palm tree in the middle of the garden. The palm tree was rather
tall, so the dogs had no way of reaching the strange animal. The woman was
dumfounded, thinking first about how that animal could have managed to climb up
there, despite the fence and the dogs, but above all about the threatening
appearance it had. For a while, from the top of the palm tree, it was staring
at her with eyes that seemed to shoot out fire. After a few moments, the animal
began to shrink little by little, taking a spherical shape, while at the same
time slowly becoming incandescent. The moment came when it had completely
turned into a luminous ball the size of a basketball. While the woman, with her
heart in her throat, was looking at the ball, it began to slowly rise up until
it became lost in the sky. Naturally, the woman, who was already a little
impressionable as it was, received a tremendous shock in the face of such a
sight, which apparently made her collapse.

On a warm summer night, the witness was sleeping in his house by the sea when
he felt someone touch his leg. He turned around and saw a small figure about 3
ft in height, with a big head and round large eyes. He could not see it well
because it was surrounded by a bright light. He tucked his legs under the
covers and shut his eyes thinking that he was dreaming but when he opened his
eyes the figure was still there. The figure stared at the witness with a
penetrating gaze that seemed to read his mind and attract him toward the
figure. The creature moved in slow jerky movements. He closed his eyes again
and when he opened them again the figure was leaning over his 3-year old
brother who slept in a cot. At this point the witness screamed and the creature
turned around, looked at him and then transformed itself into a luminous sphere
not bigger than a tennis ball and it then flew out the window at high speed.
After a while he called his parents.

Ardy Sixkiller Clarke has collected and documented five thousand plus stories
of encounters with various types of Star People by American Indians. So far she
has written four very fascinating books presenting her findings. Several
stories of balls of light transforming into entities are recorded in her books,
especially in Sky People. Untold Stories of Alien Encounters in Mesoamerica
(2015). Here a few short quotes from the cases documented, describing the
light kept getting closer and closer. Then, all of a sudden, one light veered
off from the rest and came toward the hose. It stopped short of the house maybe
30 feet away. It just hovered there a few feet from the ground.. . At this point,
I was only focusing on the one that was so close to me and wondered if I could
make it to my pickup… As I edged toward the pickup, the ball of light
transformed again and a human form materialized in fron of me. He was dressed
in a light suit. He told me not to be afraid. I felt faint; I am not sure if it
was from fear or the odor I smelled… Like rotten eggs. It was overpowering…
After you talked about horses, what happened?
It was like he dropped to the ground and turned into a ball of light again and
flew off to join the others. Later I saw them above the hill, The morphed into
a huge craft and were gone.”
(Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, Encounters With Star People, pp. 139-140).
”In theri true state they are balls of light. It is
only whenthey assume human form that you see them. Otherwise you are blinded by
them. Many people never know they have met them. They see balls of light, not
realizing that they are actually living forms.”

tourists were gone. I found myself over a mile from the entrance when the sky
became dark and a lightning storm came up. Taking cover in one of the
structures, I deceide to wait out the storm… As the rain ceased, I decided to
head home. That´s when a circular craft came out of the clouds and settled in
the plaza. Three men, covered in light, came out of the craft. They stopped in
front of the Temple of Inscriptions and turned themselves into balls of light.
I watched as they floated upward to the top of the entrance and then they

They materialized into human-like figures. That is what I remember. Gabriella
remembers the blue light and the balls of light, but nothing else.”

After a lifetime of travel, field investigation and
study of UFO, Fortean and paranormal phenomena John Keel reached the conclusion
shared today by many researchers into these areas: we live in a multiverse inhabited
by a variety of diverse intelligences. He usually referred to these
intelligences as ultraterrestrials or elementals and their emergence into our
reality as transmogrifications, another word for materializations. He was
mostly pessimistic and often referred to the phenomena as demonic and
destructive to mankind. A somewhat more hopeful tone was given in his last book
The Eighth Tower (1975): “Today many scientific disciplines are moving in
the same direction, not realizing they are mapping a very old country. In a few
years, perhaps even in our own lifetime, all sciences will suddenly converge at
a single point, and the mysteries of the superspectrum will unravel in our
hands.” (p. 216).
To me it is obvious that
the ufologists, Forteans and cryptozoologists of our generation really are
”mapping a very old country”. A country studied and investigated for ages by
custodians of The Esoteric Tradition – The Science of the Multiverse.
