Jim Poushinsky observed a UFO similar to one reported by James Thompson from Arkansas just four days earlier in Ottawa, Canada


Poushinsky posts in social media just after a KCOR radio broadcast on “The Strange Truth” with show host, Dave Emmons. He interviewed Edward James Thompson about his four hour extraterrestrial invitation event on June 30, 1992.

This article is about Jim Poushinsky who elaborated on not only seeing a UFO near Ottawa, Canada, but, he saw it in almost exact detail four days earlier (Skeptic Broken article) in June of 1992! Had it not been for Jim reporting his event on a Facebook post, no one would have known, much less connected the two events together.

This author was contacted at Universal Digest in 2017 regarding Jim Poushinsky and his telepathic experiences with whales. After a few months of research, the article was published on August 6, 2017.


Jim Poushinsky and this writer have remained in occasional contact over the last three years. When he took the time to enlighten us with his June 26, 1992 UFO contact, we were most excited. Here was an event of something observed so well detailed, it helped put the association together. Since this time, Jim and I have accumulated more information to help him share his experiences with the public domain.

What follows is Jim Poushinsky with his social media post.


The description of the room with multicolored light on the walls that went out and a ball of energy appeared with lightning coming out of it – reminded me of seeing a UFO while driving home with my family at night in the country near Ottawa, Canada, in 1992.

First we saw what appeared to be a burst of lightning from the ground illuminating the bottom of clouds in the sky above, then darkness. A minute or so later it happened again, and again and again always in the same spot! Out of curiosity I drove towards it, and as we got closer we could see a dome shape the size and height of the top of a barn silo, that was covered with different coloured strands of lights going down the sides – my wife remembers pink, I remember shades of blue, and possibly green. Then the lights would all at once go out and a column of lightning-like light would hit the clouds above for several seconds, and when it stopped the coloured lights would come back on!

As we got close to it we could see cars on the cross-road ahead slowing down and stopping to look at it. Then it went dark and the lights were no more. I drove across the road past a grove of trees and there was a cleared corridor for high voltage transmission lines attached to steel towers, that the UFO must have been hovering above. The next day I called Ontario Hydro and they confirmed there had been power fluctuations happening in the lines that were attributed to sheet lightning.

Interestingly, this happened on June 26th, 1992, just before Jim Thompson’s experience! Maybe they were recharging their energy ball?

I also had a confrontation with 2 balls of lightning the size of grapefruits at open doors to my round barn, in a storm where a ball of lightning the size of a soccer ball went into my neighbour’s barn and grounded in his electrical panel, totally melting it into an unrecognizable piece of slag metal, back in those days. There is no scientific explanation for ball lightning! Could this be the free energy source Jim was shown?

Thanks to the Jim Poushinsky post above, he and I moved into another new light. He wants to share his past life experiences since our last article. Readers will find this most interesting.


It has been so good to have my whale experiences on your website so people can share them! I feel that I should do something similar with my different ET encounters. Those include a Gray taking me on her ship, much like James Edward described, a Preying Mantis paralyzing me, and a ball of yellow light paralyzing me and entering my brain. Those all happened in my pre-adolescent years.

Still need more regression hypnosis to find out what happened in the last scenario. Then there’s all the UFO sightings and psychic connections in my adult years. The problem is sorting them out from the spiritual contacts and the lucid dreams and visions and Out of Body Experiences that started in childhood and have persisted throughout my life.

It’s like glimpses into a higher dimensional awareness that we need to evolve our consciousness to partake of, and through doing so connect together for the highest purpose. The ETs want to help us get there so they can evolve their consciousness to their next higher dimensional awareness, and to do that we have to take their place, because we are all connected.

Jim Poushinsky and his interactions with other beings (not of earth) do include reptilians.


The following experience, written by Jim Poushinsky is most interesting. Of his many experiences, including UFO sightings, extraterrestrial encounters, and past lives, he wanted to share this to the reading public. He does this in hopes others who have had experiences may feel more comfortable sharing theirs.


Here is another connection revealed to me that I wrote about: The problem with science driven understanding is that it is limited to the physical realm of existence and has no awareness of consciousness! I have become aware of my physical deaths in several past lives that are relevant to this one. As an adult I connected to one while doing regression self-hypnosis meditation to investigate painful leg pains that caused me to scream as I tried to go to sleep at age 6 and 7 when living with my aunt and uncle at a Forestry Base on the North Shore of Lake Superior.

The doctor I was taken to had said there was nothing wrong and “it was all in my head”. So my uncle threatened to give me a reason to scream by strapping me with his belt if I ever cried out again, and I had suffered from then on in silence as the pains repeated. In the healing meditation I found myself paddling a birch bark canoe the bow and stern of which curved in circles signifying the Sun and the Moon.

I was paddling downstream in fast current between rocky cliffs with my attention focused on paddling around a fallen tree that blocked my view ahead. I managed to swing out around the tree only to find myself shooting over a waterfall to fall a hundred feet to the rocks below. Next thing I knew I was hovering above the body of an older indigenous man wearing buckskin clothing and laid out on his back.


My attention was suddenly distracted by a flash of light, and I saw it had come from a semi-circle formed by indigenous people. There was ceremonial smoke in the air between us, and they were raising and lowering sticks about 2 feet long that had copper discs about 2 inches in diameter attached at the ends. The discs were polished like mirrors so they reflected the sun towards me. And as I looked into the next rhythmic flash I suddenly found myself transported through the light beam to the Sun, watching as the image of a body was encircled by blue tentacles of Light and pulled into the Sun.

Jim Poushinsky shares one of his many past lives experiences for the readers.

I had the intuitive feeling that I was watching my death in a previous life, and that the pains in my legs were the pains I had dissociated from consciousness as I died in that life! The experience was so profound I wrote to the archaeologists at the National Museum in Ottawa describing the birch bark canoe with bow and stern curved into circles, and the spiritual ceremony using copper mirrors to guide the spirit of the dead to the Sun. They wrote back telling me there was no evidence for this, no historical record of such a canoe shape, and no copper discs used as mirrors.


A short time later I took my young children to see a movie at the Museum. The movie was a disappointment, so after it finished I took them for a walk through the Ascent of Man display the Museum was featuring. It too was boring, and as we got to the third floor the loudspeakers suddenly announced the Museum was closing in 5 minutes and we should all go to the exit. The kids were tired and I decided to check and see if there was another way downstairs so we wouldn’t have to go back down the long way we had come.

I turned into a side passage, but soon realized it didn’t go to the Exit. Instead it went to a large glass box that I felt drawn to. To my amazement I found myself looking at some copper artifacts lying in a depression in sand. And there were the copper discs I had seen in my meditative healing vision! I was fascinated to see they each had a small hole near the edge, which answered my curiosity about how they had been fastened to the sticks. And I realized looking at them that they were so tarnished by time nobody today had recognized they could be polished to make light reflecting mirrors.


I looked at the description above the exhibit. It said the copper artifacts had been found on a beach 80 feet above the present North Shore of Lake Superior, and were 8,000 to 10,000 years old! The Dalai Lama tells us we have all lived so many lives we are all related to each other and to all the animals too! And the message I have received from the spiritual Elders I have talked with is that we are all One.

UFO Encounters of a new kind. What has been the influence?


Encounters and strange phenomenon of ‘things’ flying in the sky have been around for over 70-years, at least, in some ‘modern’ phase, raising many questions about their nature and origin: what ‘country’ is behind their operation; what causes their ‘flight’; can they be contacted; are they real and ‘alien’ in a scientific sense; what does science say about them; and what ‘is’ the scientific method? Without the proper questions, say the writers in UFOs: REFRAMING THE DEBATE, we will never get correct answers.

‘To reframe the UFO debate we need to formulate new models for analyzing existing and incoming data,’ says researcher Susan Hemeter-St. Clair (p. 177), and introduce innovative hypotheses by asking better questions than have so far been asked.’

UFO Encounters of a new kind. What has been the influence?

The book’s contents travels from the ‘classically’ skeptical viewpoint of Chris Rutkowski (who drives home that a strict ‘old rules’ in a current science methodology is what he feels is needed) through thirteen other writers (some of whom have actually ‘had’ their own UFO encounters and experiences) that have the audacity to question and improvise attempts to reconstruct old methods with new ones that force the very latest science to include the established facets of those new studies by academics and other scientists.

Mike Clelland speaks about his own accounts of many “high strangeness” contacts, but also the rather bizarre and traumatic events of other ‘experiencers.’

‘My problem with ‘ufology’ is my own personal experiences, I’ve been at the receiving end of enough weird shit that nobody needs to tell me this stuff is real,’ says Cleland (p. 19). Clelland’s concern is primarily with abduction reports where the landscape is rich with bizarre patterns of synchronicity, common consciousness-archetypes and recurring symbolism.

Dr. Leo Sprinkle (a Ph.D. in counselling and was also a Professor of Psychology at the University of Wyoming) gives his own appraisal of the situation and he says that on ‘some subconscious level… (there was) kind of manipulation.’ (p.23). Likewise, based on many years of investigating high strangeness ‘abduction’ reports, Clelland feels researchers are only ‘barely dipping below the waterline’ and avoiding the starkest elements of such cases. This is where Cleland see the richest core of the topic, after being himself one and also living with ‘experiencers.’

Even more ‘mundane’ UFO ‘sightseers,’ when asked the properly-phased questions, can be asked about ‘other’ ‘unusual, personal events,.’ events that are often excluded by less inquisitive examiners, when usually a much deeper and alarming story would emerge. That portion might be ‘missing time’ or ‘weirder stuff.’ But Clelland has seen far too often ‘patterns’ that he feels hold ‘clues to unravel this mystery’ (p. 29).

‘The scientific community has either ignored or denounced the UFO phenomenon for close to 70 years. With very few exceptions, UFO researchers, who try to wrestle with this mystery using any kind of scientific reign, end up framing it merely as metal spaceships from another planet…9 not) strange invasion of consciousness…’ (pp. 28-30).

Dr. Jeffrey Kripal of Rice University says he has encountered increased bizarreness which Clelland calls ‘the trauma of enlightenment’ on a long trail of ‘unknowns with no path to follow’ on a very personal, very private quest in which we can’t expect to solve.

Jack Brewer likewise agrees with Dr. Jacques Vallee and the late John Keel that cases of “high strangeness” should lead us away from the conventional ETH theory. There are indications that the early years of UFOs had more earthly origins, such as a super-weapon Project Seal, soon followed by ‘deception programs” of Colonel Carl Goldbranson who did such thigs as a 1950 Rand/Air Force report titled The Explanation of Superstition for Purposes of Psychological Warfare. They later included deception artists such as British Major Jasper Maskelyne and World War II Major General Edward Geary Lansdale, who, in the words of Project Grudge, relate to ‘psychological propaganda’ (p. 37-38).

The same Colonel Edward Landsdale ‘was running around’ the Philippines inventing psycho-weapons about ‘vampires among the Huks,’ then going after and trying to retain and apply more ‘political-psychological warfare,’ all under the overseer-ship of the Central Intelligence Agency and Allen Dulles, resulting in the infamous Robertson Panel (p. 38).

Likewise, Brewer warns about widespread ’hoaxing’ by various people and the need to better understand the trauma and jaded emotional reactions exhibited by ‘UFO witnesses’; a multiplicity-of-reasoning is needed to ‘resurrect’ better methods of investigators.

‘If we are to find events of interest at the heart of what-to-became a truly phenomenal social occurrence,’ says Brewer, ‘we would be wise to drop preconceived notions to the best of our abilities.’

Curt Collins also lays bare the painstaking teamwork of many individuals and agencies that came together in the exposure of the infamous ‘Roswell Slides’ of November 2014 that eventually were discovered to be photos of a mummified body of a two-year-old boy, as uncovered by what became to be known as the Roswell Slides Research Group.

‘It was largely by chance the group came together on this project,’ says Collins. ‘Each of us must remain objective, seek the best evidence and ask challenging questions whether as part of a team or as individuals’ (p. 108).

Researcher Micah Hanks heralds Allen Hendry’s book The UFO Handbook and Hanks suggests a ‘modernized’ UFO classification system of six categories, including ‘Biological,’ ‘Experimental,’ and ‘Drones.’

Whatever ‘fashion’ the UFO investigator undertakes it must be totally unbiased and burdened by ‘modern skepticism’ that appears to be ‘evangelical,’ but based on ‘careful thought analysis and an equal willingness to be open-minded in our skepticism…’ (p. 74).

‘Modern skepticism can, I think, be summarized in many instances as an ideology, around which a social movement has been built___one that, today, also runs tangent with atheism___and as a paradoxically evangelical attitude about the supremacy of science above all other form of knowledge.’

Smiles Lewis sees the UFO phenomena as not only multi-clausal, but part of a ‘paraCryptolzology,’ possibly part of a ‘covert socio-cultural control system’ attacking our sensibilities on a complicated scale, rather than just nuts-and-bolts vehicles. Lewis suspects that geomagnetism, electro-magnetisms, Gaia-Mother-Earth-Consciousness, and man-made invasion, are all components of these happenings. At times, the ‘Controllers’ utilized Akashic Records and Jung’s ‘collective unconscious,’ and at other times are seen similar to the extraterrestrials in Carl Sagan’s book and movie CONTACT as ‘a trans-personal virtual reality communications channel… (to) facilitate anomalous information transfer, facilitate telepathy, remote viewing, and other forms of ESP’ (p. 115).

Lewis cites Thomas Bearden that ‘our collective anxieties are psychical manifestations’ (p. 116); it embraces the works of Dr. Steven Mizrach, James Pontobello, Susan Lepselter, Carol Suzanne Matthews, Michael Persinger, Gyslaine F. Lafreniere, Hank Albarelli, Martin Cannon, and other professionals.

Smiles Lewis provides the public with the ultimate challenge of human agencies, such as the CIA and the military, taking our knowledge of the paranormal energies and further applying them into MK-Ultra programs, Nazi collusion, secret experiments, Project Palladian, and psychological warfare. These ‘cultural overlays’ make the subject all the more necessary to ask for correct questions beyond ‘xenophobic tribalism,’ ‘counterfeit foes,’ and ‘manufactured machinations and stratagems’ (p. 129).

Lorin Cutts likewise fears investigators are being manipulated by the phenomena itself and the faulty perception and questions we attach to it. These ‘myths’ permeate the phenomena forcing researchers into one or two ‘belief systems,’ either of ‘extraterrestrial origin,’ or complete ‘skeptical disbelief’ (p. 82). There is much more happening, says Cutts. UFO sightseers and experiencers are definitely seeing something anomalously similar as to what people are seeing in the Yakima, Washington ‘hot spot.’ But zeroing-in seems beyond the current methods to investigate that ‘hot spot’ as it seems this, and other areas, have been frozen in a cadre of myth and ignorance (p. 87).

‘Current scientific understanding will never be the truth of the entire universe,’ says Cutts. ‘Science, while the foundation of societal development, will always be something of a paper-god…from within this void, come magical, high-strangeness, and human experiences that continue to mystify and confuse.’ (p. 89).

Red Pill Junkie tries to expand on the parapsychological inference that UFOs are intermingled apparitions of turmoil or ‘crisis apparitions’ similar to poltergeist activity in ghostly manifestations___or phenomena often called the ‘Trickster’ (pp. 130, 155).

Accounts are replete down through history of the ‘Trickster’ phenomena. He recounts many examples in the media and in historical accounts: Spring Heeled Jack in the 19th century; the Mad Gasser of Mattoon of the 1930s; or the Mothman in the 1960s and its Trickster called Indrid Cold.

Observed as a ‘chaotic catalyst,’ says Red Pill Junkie, ‘perhaps the confounding trickery of these ‘Cosmic Jokers’ is intended to shake us out of our collective stagnation, and force us to see a way out of our ‘dark (k) night of the soul’ into a sunnier tomorrow,’ though the writer is far from clear as to exactly how this was to take place (p. 162).

Greg Bishop concurs by saying that science has many disciplines that have yet to be applied in investigations; when current theories, such as spaceships, don’t fit the mold, it only normal to ask newer and more fitting questions.

‘There is a massive backlog of apparent craft and beings seen, as well as a wide spectrum of individuals reacting,’ says Bishop. ‘This suggests either that countless type of strange entities are visiting us, or, that the brain has some kind of creative control over what is experience’ (p. 191).

Smaller autonomous research groups, refraining from using ‘hard and fast ideologies’ and ‘belief systems,’ trying to cover all the bases, using the latest understanding of the human brain and nervous system, seeing the possibility of an extra-human consciousness, examining the line between the internalized experience and the external world, eroding of visual stimuli are just a few of the suggestions that Bishop feels must be properly addressed and applied. All too often the brain adds details when traumatic situations occur: we still need to examine ‘how much’ and “where” this happens (pp. 193-197).

‘Abduction’ and ‘close encounter’ episodes are particularly problematic. Bishop has seen several accounts were ‘encounters’ are probably following ‘dream logic,’ information-rich ‘reorganizations’ into a new reality. Mac Tonnies suggests the ‘occurrences’ are contacts with ‘pure information,’ thinking of the operational world of matter.

‘Until recently, scientists have recorded mass and energy as the primary building blocks of nature,’ says Bishop. ‘Now, some are beginning to regard information as the basic currency of reality. This may be following a trend in science that stretches back over 2000 years.’

Understanding, or even perceiving, this ‘quantum information’ may involve new and unbeknownst factuality that ‘the reality of it may either be foreign to our way of thinking or even conceptualizing that this is the closest we can get at this point’ (p. 205). ‘there may be no way we can have uncompromised access to this external reality and it may not actually exist until we come to the end of a long line, if uncalmable, questions about what it is’ (p. 206).

Encounters of UFOs and aliens could be depicted here?


Joshua Cutchin readily agrees with some of the other thirteen authors and commentary, saying that present-day ‘science’ is still too hindered by decrypted ‘materialism’ constraints, referring to its recognizing and equipping itself with he growing discoveries of parapsychology ad quantum-physics ‘discoveries.’

‘The most obvious repercussions of a belief in telepathy is how it normalizes a host of other psi phenomena in a domino effect,’ says Cutchin, ‘which in turn bursts the perceived N&B/ETH Ufological monopoly…one point on a robust spectrum of psychic doctrine’ (p. 53).

Remnants of such a human endeavor were the $20 million Stargate Project, telepathy-work by Rupert Sheldrake, Daryl Ben of Cornell University and Alex Tsakiris who also directed us to a new paradigm of investigations.

‘It is novel to declare that we shouldn’t feel ashamed at this interpretation,’ says Cutchin. ‘It is novel to predict that one day this science will look a lot more like our science’ (p. 160). The materialist paradigm will fall apart given time, and consciousness studied is the proverbial star to which ufology should hitch its wagon. The study of UFOs and alien abduction has zero obligations to a N&B/ETH model” (p. 62).

Ryan Sprague also concurred with this growing line-of-reasoning: ‘This expansion of awareness needs also to be explored,’ says Sprague. ‘Even to scratch the surface of the UFO enigma, we must remove part of the mentality that we are dealing purely with nuts and bolts, part of the notion that the key to the UFO phenomena lies in physical analysis’ (p. 182).

Many of the UFO witnesses Sprague interviewed spoke of feeling like ‘their reality was somehow altered in the moment…this passage between established and newfound realities is where UFOs seem to float, hover, zip, coast, appear and disappear in and out of ambiguity’ (p. 183).

Dr. David Clarke taunts in his 2015 book HOW UFOS CONQUERED THE WORLD, Sprague points out, that the UFO syndrome and culture itself feeds the phenomenon and the perception of it ‘in an endless feedback-loop between stories passed down through media and genuine experience’ ( p. 186).

All of the writers utilized for this book urge a fresh and reconstructed ‘methodology’ aimed at building reliable evidence but based on a totality of a growing and modern science voided of the ‘gas lighting’ of bias and 19th century methods.

Written By: Steven Erdmann


[1] This approach is consistent with a view that our society has transitioned from ‘modernism’ to ‘post-modernism’ to ‘metamodernism’…The unwillingness of UFO zealots to conform in any way with scientific methodology with regard to testing claims within the community negates them as   sources of reliable information about the subject.’ (p. 15).
