George Adamski & Our Amazing CRT Solar System

(C) 2015 Ray X

“Wait a minute!  That’s wrong.”

A storyteller doesn’t want his audience to notice holes in his great tale.

In this third and last book, Flying Saucer Farewell (1961), contactee George Adamski had to explain an apparent falsehood with his previous writings.

George always had stories to tell. In the summer of 1947 he claimed 184 flying saucers flew over him one evening.  He even photographed what he said were alien spacecraft.

But his UFO adventure went into full gear after he reported that he met with an alien in the desert, a Nordic humanoid named Orthon who hailed from Venus.  (Any relation to Nylon of Mars?)

George received the usual contactee messages: nuclear war would end life on Earth, people had to live in peace, and don’t wear white after Labor Day.

Orthon took his earthling friend on a tour of the solar system.  George wrote that other worlds like Venus had Earth-like atmospheres, even all the way out to Pluto.

But there was a big problem, according to standard science.  As George mentioned the heat and light from the sun should decrease inversely with the square of the distance.  As one traveled from the earth he would notice each planet receiving less solar radiation, until a planet like Pluto would probably be a frozen lifeless rock.

Yet despite that inconvenient fact Gorge still stated: “I know from personal experience that [the] outer planets have thriving, with climates and atmospheres similar to our own earth.”

He had an answer to those skeptical standard science types.

In Flying Saucer Farewell George included a detailed diagram of a cathode ray tube (CRT), the device that enabled people to watch Captain Video on their boxy TV sets back in those days.

Then George went into an explanation about how a CRT worked, negative electrons, high voltages, various grids and anodes, whatever.

The reason why Mars and the outer planets received enough heat was due to three asteroid belts between planet groups that allowed enough radiation to flow all the way out to Pluto and beyond.  (The space brothers revealed our solar system had a total of twelve planets.)   Each asteroid belt was negative in charge, attracting the sun’s particles and passing them along with a boost.

The asteroid belt system acted like CRT grids and anodes.  As George summed up: “This furnishes Pluto and the last three planets with normal light and heat.”

Unfortunately George Adamski passed on to a higher level in 1965.  He’s probably living with his reincarnated wife on Venus.  Too bad.  He could explain why all the space probes have found inhospitable atmospheres on other planets, no sign of alien civilizations.

Maybe he would say the other planets are projecting illusionary holograms so that we can’t see their true surfaces.

Or better yet the solar CRT system broke and everyone went underground.

That demonstrates how dependent even the space brothers are on the repairman.

Someone should collect these rationalisations. They make for delightful reading.

Ernest Norman, of Unarius fame, published The Infinite Concept of Cosmic Creation in 1956. Like most contactees, he claimed most of our planets, especially Venus, had habitable atmospheres with thriving civilisations. But in the 1970 edition, Norman published an addendum: an AP article about Venus probes, and Norman's commentary. The article reported the Venus probes recorded temperatures over 500 degrees and air pressure 100 times that of Earth. Norman declared this report "validates" his previous statements, arguing that because "three-dimensional" life could not exist in such an environment, Venusian people and their cities therefore are composed of "interdimensional energies," a concept he claimed to have described in another 1956 book, Voice of Venus.

George King and his modern Aetherius followers have gone through the same gyrations, transforming Martians from flesh-and-blood beings (You Are Responsible! 1961) into non-corporeal "vibrational" entities (see link). King's assertions of "longitudinal vegetation belts" reflect legitimate scientific speculations of the mid-1950s, which I've seen reported in early issues of Flying Saucer Review.

1. On Mars, would Nylon be a natural fiber?

2. "Unfortunately George Adamski passed on to a higher level in 1965."

Given the CRT analogy, can we say, "He went of the the air in 1965. Canceled before sweeps week?"

3, For some reason, I (and it would appear you too) have this compulsion to poke fun at Adamski. Like Terry TC said, we should, perhaps, collect all of his nuttiness onto one blog. That way, we won't have to go to the bother of lampooning the man.
