Prudence Calabrese appeared on the Art Bell radio program, along with Dr. Courtney Brown and Whitley Strieber, to describe the Farsight Institute's latest evidence concerning an alleged mystery object near comet Hale-Bopp. Prudence has worked with the Farsight Institute since July 1996, when she became the Institute's webmaster. She has completed the Farsight Institute's basic training in remote viewing and is now in advanced training. She has also completed a Ph.D. dissertation in physics and will receive her Ph.D. degree within six months. However, she prefers not to identify the university she attends. "I don't want this getting back to them at this point -- not until I have my degree in hand," she says.
CNI News editor Michael Lindemann interviewed Prudence Calabrese by phone on November 30, 1996. The following is transcribed from that conversation:
ML: What is the Farsight Institute's best evidence at this time concerning the possibly anomalous object associated with comet Hale-Bopp?
PC: We have a series of photographs taken by a very well-known astrophysicist, and we've been getting all sorts of other independent confirmation that other observatories have taken photographs as well. [During the radio program, Art Bell and Whitley Strieber both said that they had received copies of five of the alleged photos, said to be of very high quality, showing a companion object with Hale-Bopp. By mutual agreement, these photos are being withheld from circulation on the internet for at least one more week.]
ML: Do you think the mystery astrophysicist will come forward?
PC: I think he will, yes, especially since there seems to be other evidence coming in. That may make him less hesitant.
ML: How would you summarize Farsight's current view of Hale-Bopp, based on the Institute's remote viewers and/or other evidence?
PC: There appears to be a companion object. It is spherical, rounded, larger than the size of the earth, and hollow. It seems to be both natural and artificial -- planet-like, a combination of planet and spaceship-like object. It is emitting light, or energy of some sort, and signals. The astronomer confirmed that they have received transmissions on two occasions from this object.
ML: Have Farsight's remote viewers sensed a sentient presence?
PC: The object itself seems to be sentient in some way. But there is some group of beings involved with this object that apparently have a mission that is directed toward earth, involving some kind of consciousness/awareness raising.
ML: Ed Dames [former Army remote viewer who trained Courtney Brown and heads a remote viewing organization called Psi-Tech] recently announced on the Art Bell show that Psi-Tech remote viewers have perceived a coming event, said to be "of cosmic proportions," that will radically alter the course of human history before the end of this century. To my knowledge, Dames has not associated this event with Hale-Bopp, but he has said that Psi-Tech is so convinced of this coming catastrophe that they have pretty much dropped all other concerns to focus on this alone. On the other hand, in "Cosmic Voyage," Courtney Brown claimed to foresee a gradual decline of conditions on earth, but not a sudden catastrophe in the near term. With this new information coming from Hale-Bopp, what do Brown and Farsight now think about the prospect of a sudden catastrophe?
PC: We're convinced that some kind of major event will happen, at least within the next four years. The feeling is it will happen much sooner than that. We don't know exactly what this event is going to entail, or whether it will involve some kind of catastrophe. We're feeling that any catastrophe that happens will most likely be of social origin and that it is unnecessary as well -- that there possibly could be ways that a catastrophe could be averted, as far as riots or things like that are concerned. We have a strong sense that whatever this alien presence is, that it will do no harm whatsoever, and that it is being extremely careful not to do harm.
ML: What would you say are the immediate needed steps to prepare the public, especially in the absence of appropriate leadership from the government?
PC: At this stage it is important for everyone to be aware that there are other groups of beings out there, other than us, so that that in itself will not be a major shock. We also need to start looking at raising our general awareness and our consciousness level, because that's the only way that contact will be effective. These beings think on much different levels than we do. We know from our remote viewing data that they don't think linearly like we do. They seem to think in "thought balls," all at once. (That's a term we use a lot. I don't know if we coined it or not.) We feel it's important for the human race to become more concerned with meditation, looking inward, not so much reaching out in fear. We think the human race will get through this event just fine. There may be some initial problems, but things will settle down and people will become accustomed, because humans in general adapt very quickly to all sorts of change.
ML: How soon do you think we'll have undeniable evidence concerning Hale-Bopp?
PC: I'm hoping that this astronomer comes forward this week. He gave the indication that he would come forward this week. But rumor in the astronomical community has it that if he doesn't, there will be others who will probably come forward within the next weeks, if not this week. Apparently there are so many different telescopes and radio telescopes focused on Hale-Bopp right now, everyone is trying to corroborate this evidence. I'm sure something will happen soon. We at the Farsight Institute are following up as many leads as we get, and any information we get we're posting immediately on our web site. [www.farsight.org]
