Prudence Calabrese, a remote viewer and co-founder, with Dr. Courtney Brown, of the Farsight Institute, has disclosed that she is in nightly contact with an entity she calls "the Grey Dude." The contacts, she says, have occurred with astonishing regularity for more than a year.
Her lengthy description of the contacts, posted on the Institute web site, is written in a tone partly humorous, partly nonchalant. "It is completely inconsequential to me what you think about this story. I don't know what to think of it myself," she says.
The nightly events are always the same. Speaking mock-cinematically, Calabrese writes: "Camera pans to sleepy naked woman getting out of bed. Sleepy naked woman feels her way to the bathroom. Sleepy naked woman notices short grey dude next to the bathtub. Before she has a chance to think or even react, sleepy naked woman gets a package of information. Short grey dude disappears. Sleepy naked woman does the bathroom thing and feels her way back to bed. Camera fades out... An encounter fit for a minimalist."
At first, she says, she was very afraid. Gradually, the fear faded. The contacts became routine, then monotonous. "Two months ago I finally stopped wondering if this encounter is the last. I am caught in an endless loop, the mobius strip of ET experience," she says.
The purpose of the visits is to impart information. Though each encounter seems very brief, it results in a huge transfer of data. Calabrese has written down hundreds of pages of notes, but that is only a fraction of what she has received. The complexity of the messages is almost confounding, she says.
"Trying to make sense of this information is much like trying to make sense of a target during remote viewing. I pick the package apart, thread by thread, finding some places too tangled to even attempt, some places well worn... Every part of each 'message' is interconnected -- absolutely everything, like a cosmic soap opera where the characters are all each other's illegitimate children. The content is sometimes like a soap opera, too...
"There appears to be no moral code associated with the message content. Things just are -- and all things are represented equally... Sometimes the messages contain what I call 'warnings' about certain people or upcoming events. These warnings are really just a complete description of an event or a person..."
Calabrese admits she is not sure who the messages are really intended for. At times, they seem directed to a specific person, including herself. More often, however, they seem to have a less specific, or perhaps more universal, recipient in mind.
Dr. Courtney Brown, writing in a separate message posted at the web site, says the messages seem directed at the Farsight Institute itself. Brown says he thinks the Institute is being prepared and called upon to play a special role in dramatic future events.
"The Grey Dude was not appearing in order to help us sort out our personal problems," Brown writes. "His organization apparently wanted to give us guidance to help establish us as a viable remote viewing institute. His group has a larger agenda, and it seems that we are part of that agenda."
But Calabrese, though among Brown's closest aides, seems decidedly ambivalent about the entire situation. Her ambivalence extends to the nature of the "Grey Dude" itself.
"What is this being, this interface from strange lands?" she askes rhetorically. "Taken at face value, it is a short being who looks similar to what we collectively call the 'Grey ETs.' I call it a 'he' because I don't like to call any being an 'it' and the energy I sense feels non female. He is shorter than I would have expected, maybe three and a half feet tall. He is not gray colored -- his pallor is more slate blue mixed with brown and orange. His skin has a texture reminiscent of the skin of dolphins. He smells like cheap mens' cologne mixed with rotten oranges. His eyes aren't as large as some artists renditions I have seen. They fall somewhere between the size of your "typical" Grey and the size of the eyes on the alleged ET in the Santilli autopsy film. He doesn't move. He is merely there, and then he is gone...
"What does this entity say for himself? As best I can capture, he does not represent any group of Grey ETs. He is a part of some group of various kinds of beings who are concerned with the problems inherent in the evolution of perception. He sees the Grey ETs as having problems of their own, problems that many groups of beings have when they first reach beyond the boundaries of the physical plane of existence. They become so dependent on telepathic thought that their own individuality becomes lost... This is not an automatic by-product of evolution, says the Grey Dude, and humans will soon be faced with the same possibility...
"Whatever their agenda, it does not feel hidden from me, but it is unrecognizable. I feel like a second-dimensional being in Flatland who has an encounter with a third- dimensional being. No matter how hard I try to be nonconclusive, open minded, even liberal, the fact remains: while I remain in this body, on this earth, in this frame of reference, I am just not capable of comprehending some things. And the things I think I comprehend are probably just plain wrong...
"I suspect that this phenomenon will remain a mystery the rest of my life. I both believe and reject that I have had contact with intelligence from another world," Calabrese says.
Courtney Brown has announced that "all of the essential parts of the messages that would be of interest to the general public" will be presented in his next book, to be published in 1998 by Dutton.
