possibility of life beyond Earth tends to evoke partisan emotions denoting two
(1) that life is unique to Earth, and (2) that it is ubiquitous and aboundant
throughout the universe. Hints about life elsewhere have been vague, including
"organised elements" in meteorites, Martian infra-red spectra
implying organic molecules, and the rare non-random radio signals whose
reception was claimed by Tesla and Marconi. Yet a psychological readiness to
accept extraterrestrial life has emerged to a most profound degree.
from its science-fiction background by Project Osma in the early 1960s, the
topic is now formally called "communication with extraterrestrial
intelligences" (acronym CETI). It was the subject of a top-level
international conference held in September 1971 at the Byurakan Astrophysical
Observatory in Soviet Armenia. The meeting was sponsored by the United States
and Soviet Academies of Science. Similar interests prevail in private study
groups both here and abroad.
programs must be welcomed in behalf of all mankind. For interstellar
communication with other, highly advanced cultures might well determine human
progress and survival. Thus, by inference, CETI emerges not only as the
greatest adventure of mankind, but also poses a colossal challenge to systems
remains an unfortunate fact that the majority of ambitious CETI programs continue
to be aligned with the somewhat obsolete theories and hardware of radio
astronomy. This is a serious drawback for several reasons:
local inadequacies in interstellar communications technology and humanness are
imposed upon a given extraterrestrial society (prompting it to lose interest in
we must be aware of the pre-eminent possibility that Type II or III
civilizations -- whose worlds were old when Earth was young -- no longer employ
electromagnetics-based communication technology due to obsolescence. The latter
assumption is defensibly supported by the fact that terrestrial radio
astronomy, in its 40 year long history as an electronics-based science, has
failed to detect intelligent, non-Gaussian signals from deep space.
somewhat better, more promising outlook has emerged as the result of
experimental data obtained by our Institute. The inference has been drawn that
interstellar communications signals, as presumably  are interchanged between
peerage groups, are of a biological -- rather than electromagnetic -- nature.
If verification tests continue to be affirmative, it will explain the
aforementioned failure of traditional radio astronomy.
one frequently encounters in exploratory research, our CETI-type data was incidental to
other work and not sought for.
operate a mobile field laboratory. One of our objectives is the development of
non-polluting electronic alternatives to chemical fertilizers and pesticides
used in agriculture.
October 29, 1971, 20:30 PDT, while conducting exploratory RBS experiments in
Riverside County, California, our field instrumentation's organic transducer
complex intercepted a train of apparently intelligent communications signals
(tight spacing and discrete pulse intervals) while accidentally allowed to
remain pointed at the constellation of Ursa Major during a short rest period.
The phenomenon prevailed for somewhat over 33 minutes, approximately 30 minutes
of which were recorded on tape when the audio monitor drew our attention.
somewhat similar phenomenon was observed on April 10, 1972, 22:30 PDT, while
conducting experiments in the Mojave Desert, California. Other, fragmentary
interceptions have been made in the interim. The apparent signals, aside of
seemingly growing weaker, appear to be transmitted at great intervals ranging
from weeks to months, possibly years. A faint, coherent, binary-type phenomenon
was noted during aural monitoring using equipment such as shown in the
accompanying illustration. Intervals between rapid series of pulse trains
ranged from approximately 3 to 10 minutes. It is likely that other phenomena
have escaped detection, since lack of special facilities and resources
precludes routine monitoring at this time.
our equipment is impervious to electromagnetic radiation and found free of
internal anomalies, the tentative conclusion of biological-type interstellar
communications signals have emerged. We also entertain the possibility of an
emergency transmission (here directed at peerage societies only), since relatively
large power levels of given makeup are required to overcome bioelectric
impedances and galvanic network losses inherent in our developmental
instrumentation. A two-way transceiving capability has not yet been achieved.
contained in our October '71 tape was accrued via analog DC-to-AC conversion
techniques. Here, fluctuating DC signals, as generated by organic
semi-conductors in the-transducer complex during Signal incidence, are made
available for direct audio recordings by changing DC products into
variable-pitch audio patterns. As is customary in an analytical telemetry, a
local pilot tone was automatically injected into the tape for detecting
mechanical tape-speed variations and/or electronic malfunctions, if any.
Provisions have been made for synchronous electromagnetic interference
monitoring. (See illustration)
a mere audio presentation, the instrumentation tape is unpleasant to listen to.
However, as many reviewers concede, a fascinating degree of enchantment tends
to emerge after the tape has been played back three or four times, typically
over a period of weeks. We ascribe this to psycho-physical adaptation, since
individual acuities to the dominant pilot or control tone tend to-be attenuated
when playbacks are repeated. The audio-frequency envelope peaks out at
approximately 5,000 Hz and is fairly uniform. The tape contains a short,
incremental series of deep, harmonious oscillations resembling nonsense chatter
or background modulations. An intelligent character of the overall pulse train
is applied by discrete spacing patterns, apparent repetitions of sequences, and
highly attenuated Gaussian noise. Arrangements are being made for computer
formats and nature of signal-emanating domain remain unknown. Reports of similar
observations made elsewhere are being solicited.

were on the same lecture program with Lawrence and had the opportunity to see
and hear his illustrated talk on Interstellar Communication. This was at Esther
Ellsworth's Understandorama at Claremont, California, May 6, 1973. He had the
Organic Transducer with him, set up backstage, and showed us a green plant leaf
pressed between two electrodes. We could hear the ‘pilot tone' on the audio
equipment. A threat was made to the living leaf by bringing a lighted cigarette
close to it. The change in the pilot tone was easily heard. Attempts to
reproduce this Backster Effect by mental-means only -- that is just thinking of
harming the leaf with a lighted cigarette -- were not quite so successful,
though some plant response was heard.
this man is a competent technician, with tremendous capability for creating and
adapting research equipment to his needs. He appears to be a true scientist,
following the search for Truth wherever it might lead, regardless of what his
preconceived ideas of life might be, here or in space! An example of this was
his readiness to go ghost-chasing with his Organic Transducer in a haunted
house in San Bernardino.
wait for any phenomena to manifest was a long one, so long that Lawrence fell
asleep, as he put it; Thus the scientist became a passive receiver along with
his equipment. Only then of course could the spook manifest! The shrill
increase in pilot tone signalled the presence of the intruder -- who was also
in Lawrence's aura!! He didn't say this on the lecture stand but in  private
conversation with us afterward he admitted that it took him a month to get rid
of his unwelcome "eating companion". This was a powerful lesson in
occult science, one we all have to learn somewhere along the line of evolution.
