Jim Sparks’ encounter with reptilian humanoids, their warning follows:
In 1988 at age thirty four, Sparks suddenly came face to face with other beings from other worlds.
“The pulling started the usual way with a low pitched, whirling sound only this time, it didn’t speed up as fast or get as loud and it was more gentle. I was paralyzed again, but I momentarily regained consciousness before the final transport sequence was complete and I could see where I was going. That was a first!
“As my eyes opened, I saw that I was at least a thousand feet above the ground and slowly descending. Below me was an abandoned carnival park. I was floating over a large, old fashioned wooden roller-coaster and I wasn’t scared! I was calm and relaxed, and the ride was so gentle I was actually enjoying it.
“When I was twenty or thirty feet from the ground, I started to slowly rock back and forth several times like a pendulum almost like I was being guided to a target and this was the final adjustment. Then I saw the profiles of about a dozen large creatures standing in a semi circle. Although it was night, I could make out the shapes of their body size and they were large, even by human standards. A few inches front the ground, I blacked out.
“As I began to regain consciousness, I was standing and heard telepathically, loud and clear:
‘We would have given it to you, but we knew it wouldn’t have meant anything unless you earned it. It was the only way you could possibly understand what you have been a part of and what you have to do.’
“I now know the ‘it’ was knowledge. I was clear headed and wide awake conscious. There were twelve large, humanoid creatures standing in almost a complete circle in which I was a part. The creatures appeared to be at least six feet tall. All of them had their heads turned towards the alien who was standing to my immediate left.
“The only apparent light source was on the face of this creature, like a hologram of a human face superimposed and glowing over the alien’s face [Howe’s emphasis]. It was radiating light and this was done to disguise his true appearance. He had done this to make me feel less apprehensive. The creatures didn’t take into consideration that as this holographic face spoke and moved its lips, there was no audible sound.
“The voice being communicated telepathically was out of sync with the lips! Plus, the face was obviously a hologram because it was slightly off centre from the body. But it worked, nonetheless, because I wasn’t scared.
“As the reptoids transmitted telepathically, I noticed that each alien seemed to be concentrating its thoughts to the creature on my left. One thing for sure: they were of one mind and it said:
‘There are some things you need to understand. Yes, it’s true that we have been in contact with your government leaders and heads of power. It is also true that agreements have been made and kept secret from your people. It is also true that, in the past, some of your people have lost their lives or have been badly hurt to protect this secret. Our hands had no part in this.
‘We contacted your leaders because your planet is in grave trouble. Your leaders said the vast majority of your population wasn’t ready for anything like us yet, so we made time agreements with your leaders as to when your people would be made aware of our presence. This part of the agreement has not at all been kept.
‘It was also agreed that, in the meantime, steps would be taken to correct the environmental condition of your planet with our advice and technology. We say advice, because we respect the fact that this is your planet, not ours. Your government also broke this agreement.’
“I felt an awful emotion of abandonment from these aliens. They are different. I never sensed true emotion from the other aliens before. But the feeling wasn’t at all good. It felt like great loss. I couldn’t help asking, ‘You aren’t giving up on us, are you?’
“There was a long pause of silence and I had a strong feeling of tremendous loss. So I asked again, ‘Well, are you?’ There was another long pause.
‘No. We are now concentrating our energy on the average person. Your air and your water are contaminated. Your forests, jungles, trees and plant life are dying. There are several breaks in your food chain. You have an amount of nuclear and biological weapons which include nuclear and biological contamination. Your planet is overpopulated. Warning: It is almost to the point of being too late unless your people act now. There are better ways of deriving your energy and food needs without causing your planet any damage. Those in power are aware of this and have the capability to put these methods into worldwide use.’
“I asked, ‘Why aren’t we doing it now?’ There was silence and the whole thing was so strange because I could see that the whole group was thinking and speaking its mind at one time. It felt good because I was a participant in an honest to goodness meeting! The best part was that for the first time I was getting direct answers to my questions. ‘Why aren’t we putting these new methods into use now?’
‘Those in power view it [technology for clean energy and abundant food] as a military and security threat.’
“Then I got angry as hell and said, ‘You mean to tell me our people in power have the ability to save and better this planet and they aren’t doing it?’ The thought that technology was being held back from the public because of paranoia and greed outraged me and the aliens saw my anger. But was it true!
“What do you mean?”
‘Complete amnesty. To those in power, the governments and the leaders who have been suppressing the truth. They can’t be held liable for any past wrong deeds. It is the only way these leaders can come forward with the truth. It is necessary that you do this in order to work together and survive.’
“There was silence for a while, as if they wanted me to think about what was just said. This was a hard truth to swallow. If anybody had a good reason to hate their government for covering up this information, it was me and others like me. Most abductees still consider themselves victims who constantly suffer ridicule. When your own government’s policy is to say ‘You’re just plain crazy’, it only deepens the pain.
“But this is a time when intelligence should rule over emotions. So I asked, ‘How do I fit in all this? What can I possibly do?’
‘What you are doing already. We will share much more knowledge with you in the future. Although you understand a lot, we will show you much more. Continue to work with people that come to you. We are aware of the small groups that are forming around the world. These are people who are prepared to learn and we consider them the core. Most important is the condition of your planet. The first step in solving this serious problem is amnesty. We have advice. You will receive more knowledge in the near future.’
“As this was going on, it started to rain. I mean, it was pouring! The creatures didn’t even budge or try to get out from under it. They didn’t have to: we weren’t getting wet. Although we were standing completely outdoors with no roof, not one drop of rain touched us. I guess we were being protected by some sort of electric field. I could hear drops as they fell, but there was a clear, detectable line [around us] between rainfall and no rainfall. Then they said:
‘It’s time to go.’
“A thought flashed into my mind. ‘Wait, please! I have a request. I want to see what you look like.’ I’ll never forget their response as long as I live:
‘It will strike fear in your heart.’
“I answered, ‘It won’t scare me so much if you don’t stand there and stare at me. It would help if you would just wave at me. Just don’t stare. Promise me you’ll wave.’
“Now I can’t believe how stupid that request was. I had, in the flesh, face to face, probably some of the most intelligent creatures from the far reaches of the galaxy, with answers that have been plaguing mankind since the dawn of time. And what did I say? ‘Could you wave at me?’
“The strangest thing started to take place. A spinning white light with a hint of green began to radiate over their faces and upper bodies, all dozen of them. The intensity of the light slowly got brighter and it was radiating from no direct or detectable source. I could see they were huge. Their upper torso was strong, with huge shoulders and a thick, strong neck like football linebackers. As the light became brighter and details clearer, fear and shock zapped through me.
“I said, ‘You have scales!’ Their faces looked like a cross between a lizard and a snake nothing at all like the little grey guys. Their eyes were small like ours, only diamond shaped and the pupils were a red colour. Their heads were in normal proportion with their bodies, but bigger than ours. The skull looked like their brains stuck out over their foreheads, covered by skin. This feature was slightly different among all dozen of them.
“I said in a scared whimper, ‘You promised to wave.’ And each and every one of them slowly lifted their arms and waved in front of their faces. Their hands were huge with thick, club like fingers, too thick to work fine instruments. But you have to keep in mind that their technology is thought activated.
“I stood there and stared at them for a while in silence, absorbing this spectacular sight. Their message kept running through my mind. I was sure that my country has been involved with aliens. Most Americans believe there’s been a cover up. But what really got to me was the message about the poor condition of our planet! Then I felt the acceleration pull and blacked out.
“I understood better their nature and agenda. They are neither benevolent nor evil. They have been among us in secret for thousands of years, maybe longer. But the length of time isn’t as much the issue as why they have been among us. I believe they have been farming us for raw materials.
“We humans have been a self perpetuating crop, a crop that doesn’t need much tending and continues to reproduce, at least up to now and all the Earth problems. Thank goodness they don’t kill us; they just use us. This system has worked well for the aliens for a long time. But now there’s a problem and their investment is in trouble. They have spent a lot of time, travel and effort to farm us. But we are on an almost irreversible path of self destruction. Nuclear and biological weapons and their waste have polluted the air, land and water. Forests, jungles and trees are being cut down or are dying. Now there are breakdowns in the food chain and the rest of the food chain is contaminated. Over population, disease and viruses beyond our grasp, with new and more complicated illnesses cropping up every day. These are just a few of the problems we humans have created.
“Most of us are blind or numb to this reality because we can still go to the grocer and buy food. We can go to work and back and not see this death and dying. All seems almost normal. But if we environmentally destroy ourselves, the aliens still have an excellent insurance policy. They’ve been collecting seeds from plants, animals and humans. Through semen and ova extraction, the aliens can start us or other Earth life, all over again, here or somewhere else.”
