EARLIER ciphers were presented to initiates in a ritual context. This ritual context has, from at least the times of the Egyptian and Babylonian Priesthood, formed the bridge between human initiates and their Ultraterrestrial sponsors, sometimes associated with the double star system of Sirius, even in ancient times.

Thus, we find the ‘modern’ Egyptian Masonic Rite of Memphis conferring a secret Degree called ADEPT OF SIRIUS, the name of which, decoded using the eleven-fold cipher encrypted in The Book of the Law, means SECRET CHIEFS and, also, SECRET MASTER.

Fortified with the 1904 Cipher, we can take, for example, the case of Trevor James Constable, author (as “Trevor James”) of the seminal 1950s work They Live in the Sky, and an active experimenter today with Reichian Energies.

John A. Keel long ago noticed that UFO contact incidents seemed to step out of time in the usual sense. Without the UFOnaut Cipher, however, the predictive aspect of this non-linear factor can be lost.

In April, 1965, a piece of parchment was found wrapped around a glass vial containing some silver sand. This was the site of Arthur Bryant’s encounter with “Yam-ski” the newly made “ascended master” who emerged from a UFO the day after contactee George Adamski’s death half a world away. The parchment contained the Greek words Adelphos Adelpho (“brother to brother”).

Two years later, in December of 1967, student Tom Monteleone encountered a UFO being in Adelphi, Maryland. The name of the town should alert us to a probable ‘coded’ relationship to the earlier case. Monteleone was told by the entity he met that it was named VADIG. Later, he met Vadig in Washington, D.C. (where Adamski had died and was buried) in ‘civilian clothes’ several times.

On each occasion VADIG, as if for emphasis, closed his conversation with the phrase, “I’ll see you in time.”

Keeping in mind that one of Adamski’s main contacts had been Fir-kon, and that this name had been adopted by an Adamski and Williamson follower who disappeared without a trace, along with his partner ‘Ramu’ we are not surprised to find that VADIG = 51 = RAMU, but also, LODGE. The value again shows up in the recent ZARKON case.

As we have seen, the strange words and names that show up in Masonic Lodge settings are similar in form and purpose to those which show up in contact cases. They show up in modern cases of Angelic Visitation, which, in a sense, resemble the visitations of the Men in Black. The Hebrew word for “angel” literally means “messenger” and the names of these messengers are often equivalent to the names of Ultraterrestrial Messengers. They also show up in demonology.

The original “etheric” and “astral” contacts took place in the ‘50s, and are a lot like the Richard Shaver ‘hidden worlds’ material. It is of interest that an old acquaintance from both the lore of classical occultism and the legends of modern Ufology, known as “Ashtar” shows up in these contacts as well.

“Ashtar” is, in traditional occult circles, a demon of considerable power. In UFO lore, he is usually a “positive force” or is so identified by percipients. A variant name that shows up in UFO contact cases is ASHTAR SHERAN. Constable also was in communication with one ANDOLO. Interestingly, ASHTAR tells Constable which beings are “etheric” and “good” and which are “astral” and “satanic”.


He tells Constable that one of the bad guys, so to speak is ERANUS, who he identifies as Satan himself.

These contacts are somewhat puzzling, because they contain, when viewed in light of the Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts, aspects of deception on the part of certain Ultraterrestrial parties, and we note the pattern of even a bizarre humor entering the picture.

  • ASHTAR SHERAN = 108 = FINGERS, while SHERAN by itself = 61 = TOES.
  • ASHTAR = 47 = ATLANS (one of Shaver’s Ancient Races) and AEON.
  • ANDOLO = 37 = AGE.
  • ERANUS, on the other hand, yields 74 = SOLAR DISC and TERRA.
  • ASHTAR (47) also yields DISC.
  • Both ASHTAR (47 or 4+7=11) and ERANUS (74 or 7+4=11; note the 47/74 reversal) both reduce to the ‘code key number,’ eleven.

I should emphasize again that a reduction to eleven is usually only possible in significant cases, eleven being the “cycle key” to the UFOnaut cipher, as explained elsewhere.

  • ERANUS = 74 = RIDDLE. It makes an anagram for SUN ERA = 74 = SOLAR DISC!
  • SUN ERA = 74 = SOLAR DISC brings to mind Aleister Crowley’s anthropological observations on “Satan”.

He informs us that,

“The Devil does not exist. It is a false name invented by the Black Brothers to imply a Unity in their ignorant muddle of dispersions… ‘The Devil’ is, historically, the God of any people that one personally dislikes… This ‘Devil’ is called Satan or Shaitan, and regarded with horror by people who are ignorant of his formula, and, imagining themselves to be evil, accuse Nature herself of their own phantasmal crime.

Satan is Saturn, Set, Abrasax, Adad, Adonis, Attis, Adam, Adonai, etc.

The most serious charge against him is only that he is the Sun in the South. The Ancient Initiates, dwelling as they did in land whose blood was the water of the Nile or the Euphrates, connected the South with life-withering heat, and cursed the quarter when the solar darts were deadliest…

But to us, aware of the astronomical facts, this antagonism to the South is a silly superstition which the accidents of their local conditions suggested to our animistic ancestors.”

Ashtar, on the other hand, is more suspect. He is frequently mentioned in the UFO literature.

Early contactee George Van Tassel mentions him in 1952 as,

“Ashtar, commandant of station Schare” and a very powerful ruler.

Van Tassel’s Giant Rock conventions became the fountainhead of the entire contemporary New Age movement. Van Tassel’s trance channel group, in fact, included advanced students of Parmahansa Yogananda’s Yogic Philosophy.

UFOlogist Bryant Reeves told his wife Helen that Van Tassel,

“reminds me of a veritable modern ‘John the Baptist’ crying in the wilderness, ‘Prepare ye for a new cosmic age’.”

The occult literature has always considered ASHTAR, or Astaroth, a fallen angel, that is, a malevolent demon.

The Lemegeton (the Lesser Key of Solomon, or Book of Evil Spirits) tells us that Ashtar,

“discourses willingly on the Fall but pretends that he himself was exempt from their lapse”.

This sounds suspiciously like what ASHTAR was doing with Trevor Constable, and other contactees, particularly in America.

Interestingly also, The True Key of Solomon (Grimorium Verum, dated 1517 and allegedly translated from an earlier Hebrew source) tells us that ASHTAR migrated to America, presumably around the time of Columbus.

So, when ASHTAR SHERAN (= “FINGERS & TOES”) tells us to watch out for the “Satanic” ERANUS (= SUN ERA or SOLAR DISC), watch out for Ashtar. Constable, be it noted, has come to have a more wary view of his early communications experiences, for which he has our admiration.

The More Angelic side is represented here too.

METATRON, the classical angelic being said to be the ascended Patriarch Enoch and the “original man in black” who wrestled all night with Jacob in The Book of Genesis and gave him the name “Israel” has the value of 128 in NAEQ6, that of SPACE SHIP, TWO FOLD NAME (Enoch-Metatron; Jacob-Israel) and NEW AGE KEY.

TIME Magazine for December 27, 1993 features a cover story on “The New Age of Angels”. It offers a remarkably uncritical account of the New Age Angel Fad, which seems to have replaced dolphins, crystals, unicorns and fairies, all so trendy in the ‘80s.

Some of the accounts resemble the encounters with Men in Black in UFO lore or the ‘black man’ of medieval demonology, the major difference, as one expects from the New Age perspective, being that these visitors are taken to be benevolent in nature,

In the Summer of 1977 Ann and Gary Cannady were visited at a time of extreme stress in their lives. Ann had been diagnosed as having advanced uterine cancer, and was three days away from major surgery. Gary’s first wife had died of the same disease, and Ann’s diagnosis had been confirmed by repeated tests. The doorbell rang, and Gary answered.

Standing on the step was a large man, a good inch taller than her 6-ft. 5-in. husband.

“He was the blackest black I’ve ever seen,” Ann says, “and his eyes were a deep, deep azure blue.”

The stranger introduced himself simply as Thomas. And then he told her that her cancer was gone.

They invited the mysterious stranger inside, where he re-affirmed that she was healed. Ann asked, point blank, who he was, to which the stranger replied, ‘I am Thomas. I am sent by God.’ He then proceeded to perform a sort of laying-on-off-hands healing. Ann felt a burst of light and heat go through her body, and passed out. Subsequent testing showed no trace of the cancer, and there has been no recurrence.

The obsidian angel quoted Isiah 53:5 to the couple, a text concerned with healing through sacrifice. THOMAS = 62 = ORDER and SACRED and AIWASS & LAM in NAEQ6, thus identifying the commonplace name with the current of the present Aeon.

But, lest the omen be misunderstood, on the next page TIME gives another modern angelic account, a being seen by Melissa Deal Forth with her dying husband Chris Deal, comforting him and seemingly communicating to him a profound sense of peace. When her husband was discovered missing from his hospital bed only days before his death, she found him in the hospital chapel “with a man she had never seen before”.

He was tall, dressed rather like Chris usually did, in a flannel shirt, new Levis and lace-up work-boots that appeared as if they, too, had just been taken off the shelf.

The clothing of such visitors in UFO lore also often appear taken ‘directly off the shelf’.

“There was no real age to him,” Melissa says. “No wrinkles. Just this perfectly smooth and pale, white, white skin and icy blue eyes. I mean I’ve never seen that color blue on any human before.”
