If you been following our blog for awhile, you know about the Quebec encounter series we posted here. There were nine entries altogether describing the UFO encounter by a rural Quebec couple–Charles and Helene–who spotted cones of light in the field behind their backyard. Neither one of them believed in UFOs or were interested in the subject. The experience has had an enormous impact on Charles’ life and a year and a half later it is still on his mind. In essence, his perspective on reality has been profoundly altered.
Before, there were no aliens and UFOs, except in the movies. Now, he is convinced they are not only real, but here. Considering the hits these posts have received from government agencies, both in Canada and the U.S., it seems that he is not the only one who thinks something is happening on the frontier of reality.
The series was merged into one long file by Mike Clelland, who posted it on his blog, and it has also been running for months on unexplained mysteries, where the sixth installation recently appeared. There have been a couple of new developments in this story not previously reported. We’ll only focus on one of them here.
Over the past months, we’ve received messages from several people who said they were very familiar with the UFO phenomena and had never heard about any sightings or encounters that resemble the illustration above. One, in particular, questioned the validity of the story. But just because an experience or event deviates from the norm doesn’t render it invalid. This is true for any event, any phenomenon, in any field.
In science, this process of scrutinizing evidence that doesn’t fit neatly into the known boxes leads to new discoveries about the nature of reality. As humanity’s consciousness evolves, so do our experiences.
So now we have received information about another case that is rife with synchronicities in relation to the Quebec encounter. First, here’s the initial drawing that we received. Take a look at the similarities.
Interestingly, both drawings show nine cones of light. There’s also a French connection. Known as the Haravilliers case, it took place in France in 1998. The similarities between the two cases are so striking that at first we wondered if Charles had read about it on Jean Casault’s UFO website. However, Charles didn’t have any interest in UFOs before his experience and Casault didn’t publish his post about the Haravilliers case until after the Quebec encounter.
In fact, he compares the two cases–referring to the couple we call Charles and Helene as Jacques and Lucie–noting the similarities and synchronicities, such as the fact that both cases involved dogs that were affected by the encounters. The French pooch was a trained hunting dog, but after the experience could never hunt again. Then the dog contracted epilepsy. Charles’ and Helene’s dog was ill for days after the encounter and acted strangely. But Spot has recovered and is apparently doing well.
MD, the man who encountered the cones of light, like Charles, was greatly affected and both experienced strange incidents in the aftermath. One thing was different in the two case: Charles could not see anything above the cones, only darkness. MD could make out the outline of a craft. Here it is below.
So, how many other experiences that we haven’t heard of fit this pattern? Just as the Hill abduction established a motif that evolved over the decades, perhaps this particular pattern is evolving as well. The research and experiences of Budd Hopkins, Whitley Strieber, John Mack, David Jacobs, Karla Turner, Jacques Vallee, John B Alexander and others have contributed to our general knowledge about this phenomenon. But because of the complexity of encounters, because reality itself is not as simple as we’re taught that it is, we don’t have complete, satisfying answers. What we learn triggers more questions.
So when we encounter an apparent anomaly in the established pattern, we should take notice, ask questions, remain skeptical but open and receptive. After all, some of the greatest discoveries – penicillin, relativity, gravity – were made because of such anomalies.
