The Greg Jenner Papers



Part Two




One of the most documented UFO periods occurred between 1896-7, when advanced cigar-shaped airships were seen by many in different parts of North America. Eye-witness accounts spoke of powerful searchlights emanating from these craft therefore most of the witnesses assumed they were man-made. Although primitive airships were certainly at the design stage, they were nothing like the aerial vehicles already up in the sky. Technologically speaking, someone was way out in front—far ahead, showing us, almost guiding us as to the ‘marvels’ we could eventually achieve.


From Exhibit 7) Brinsley Le Poer Trench (  The Eternal Subject 1973)

“…It is a well-known fact that when the time is ripe a new invention arrives. Often it is discovered at almost the same moment by more than one person working independently in entirely different parts of the world. It is ‘in the air’, so to speak.”

“Why is it ‘in the air’? Perhaps, at different times, when the [hidden masters think] the time is ripe, these ideas have been ‘planted’ by people like St.-Germain…”

“Could the mystery airships have been demonstrated in the skies over the United States, Britain and [Canada] to show what could be achieved in this direction.” Page 111.


From what I have uncovered airship technology is very ancient. A technology that was in existence well before the 1896-97 flap and also a technology that, I believe, Count St. Germain was privy to. Therefore in connection with this thought two contemporary airship drawings are provided below to support my argument. Note how both pictures show essentially the same design.


The airship was observed in Arabia in 1479 (according to the Prodigies Chronicles by Conrad Lycosthenes) and the airship, below-right, appeared over Europe in 1527. Apparently this ship really got around!



(Source: Did Spacemen Colonise the Earth? by Robyn Collins 1974. Page 129)

Obviously the European rendering of 1527 was reproduced from the original Arabian drawing, even so, whoever copied the 1479 original deemed it necessary and important enough to bring-forth esoteric knowledge of a flying cigar-shaped airship.


From Exhibit 5) Sherry and Brad Steiger (  The Rainbow Conspiracy 1994)

“On August 13 [1897] a mysterious airship was reported over VANCOUVER, British Columbia, and at three or four different points in Manitoba and the other Canadian [Arctic] ‘territories’ as the vessel travelled eastward—terminating its flight, or so it would seem, off the coast of Norway, where the crew of the steamer Kong Halfdan spotted it. If it was the same airship that was sighted in these widely separated reports, the craft was travelling at a great rate of speed.” Page 35.

Mysterious airships have also been linked to the subterranean realm of Mount Shasta. See below:


Exhibit 10) David Hatcher Childress (   Lost Cities of North  & Central America 1992)

“The [American] Rosicrucians also report that “boats” exist which have flown out of the Shasta region high in the air over the hills of California as well as other nearby areas. They say such boats have been spotted at sea and as far north as the Aleutian Islands. The airships were unusual in that they made absolutely no sound, giving no indication of having been powered by a motor of any kind.” Page 537.


Exhibit 11) Rosicrucian Digest (May 1931 Issue)  

“Many testify to having seen the strange boat, or boats, which sail the Pacific Ocean, and then rise at its shores and sail through the air to drop again in the vicinity of Shasta. This same boat…has neither sails nor smokestacks…[and] was seen several times by the officials employed by the cable station located near VANCOUVER, and the boat has been sighted as far north as the Aleutian Islands…”

In my opinion, the most interesting report of an airship encounter comes from the following book:


From Exhibit 5) Sherry and Brad Steiger (   Lost Cities of North  & Central America)

“We Come from Anywhere”—When John Barclay of Rockland, Texas, was awakened by his barking dog and a peculiar whining sound, he went to the door of his home to see what was creating such a disturbance at eleven o’clock at night.”


“Barclay’s report stated that he saw “an airship…with a peculiar-shaped body, oblong-shaped, with wings and side attachments of various sizes and shapes. There were brilliant lights, which appeared much brighter than electric lights…It seemed perfectly stationary about five yards from the ground.”

“After Barclay watched the airship gradually descend to the ground in a pasture near his house, he picked up his Winchester rifle and went down to investigate. Within about thirty yards of the airship, the Texan was met by an ordinary appearing man who identified himself as “Mr. Smith,” who requested that Barclay set down his weapon, as no harm was intended.”

“Then, remarkably, Mr. Smith asked Barclay to run an errand for him which seemed designed solely to convince the Texan that the occupants were flying some kind of new invention of definite terrestrial origin. He handed Barclay a ten-dollar bill and requested that he purchase some lubricating oil, a couple of cold chisels, and some bluestone.”

“When the obliging Texan returned with everything on the shopping list except the bluestone, Mr. Smith thanked him and asked him not to follow him back to the vessel. “But where are you from…and where are you going?” Barclay called after his mysterious visitor. The airship occupant turned to reply: “We are from anywhere, but we will be in Greece the day after tomorrow.” Once the stranger was back on board the airship, Barclay stated, “It was gone…like a shot out of a gun!” 

“About two hours after the airship made contact with John M. Barclay in Rockland, Texas, the aerial visitor settled back to solid ground near Harrisburg, Arkansas. Whether or not it was the same airship that had risen from Texas soil so brief a time before cannot be precisely determined—for this time the occupants revealed themselves to a Mr. Harris, a former senator, as a bearded inventor accompanied by two young men and a woman.”

“The April 23, 1897, edition of the Harrisburg, Arkansas, Modern News, provided the astonishing details of Mr. Harris’s…experience.

“Awakened about one o’clock in the night by an unfamiliar noise, Harris was astonished to observe an airship settling down just a short distance from his home. By the time he went to investigate, Harris surprised the crew taking on a supply of fresh water from his well.”


The crew was composed of a man with jet-black eyes who appeared elderly, yet whose waist-length whiskers were dark and almost silken, and two young men and a woman who scurried back on board the airship without uttering a sound. Once the bearded man recovered from the surprise of “finding anyone out at such an hour of the night,” he promised to reveal the secret of the airship to Mr. Harris, “everything, except how the effect is produced.” [One should take not that Mr. Harris, who reported the account, was a former United States senator!—GJ]

“His uncle, so declared the occupant, was a brilliant scientist [Alchemist?] who had conquered the laws of gravity. [In-other-words his Uncle knew how to harness Levitation—GJ] He had received offers of huge sums of money from syndicates in new York City, Paris, and London—but he refused them all and managed to lock his secrets away in a vault shortly before becoming violently ill and dying.”

“According to the mysterious bearded man, it had taken him another nineteen years before he had been able to master his uncle’s FORMULA and to devise an airship that was almost [to] perfection. Almost, but not quite—which was why the inventor and his crew travelled mainly at night, to avoid being detected.”

“I must continue to experiment,” he told Harris…At this point the bearded inventor made a…peculiar slip in pinpointing linear time. As he explained that weight was no object to his antigravity device, he informed Harris that the crew had on board “a four-ton improved Hotchkiss gun, besides about ten tons of ammunition.”

“And why was the airship so heavily armed? “We made these preparations to go over to Cuba and kill out the Spanish army if the hostilities had not ceased.” (Remember, the hostilities had not yet begun.) And now, according to the airship occupant, since the war in Cuba was over, they “might go to the aid of the Armenians,” who in 1896 were being massacred in Constantinople by the Turks.”

“The bearded man boasted that their “improved Hotchkiss’ could fire “63,000 times a minute.” Noting that Mr. Harris was impressed by such technology, the man added that his crew could remove the Capital building from Washington, D.C., and put it down in Harrisburg if they wished. [A foreshadow to ‘The Philadelphia Experiment?—GJ] He also let Harris know that he and the crew could take breakfast in Arkansas, do some shopping in Paris, and be back in Harrisburg for dinner “without inconvenience.”

“In spite of the promise of personally observing such modern wonders, Harris declined the man’s invitation to go for a ride in the marvellous craft. “In that case,” the bearded inventor said, “We had better be off before we disturb anyone else.” A few seconds after he bid Mr. Harris adieu, the airship drifted “to a place among the stars and in a few seconds was hid beyond the darkness of the night.” Pages 32-34. 

As the turn of the century rolled in, the amazing story of the mysterious bearded inventor faded away, however, one has to ask the question: Who was the bearded inventor’s Uncle? Should I dare say St. Germain’s name once again? Did he belong to some secret society, such as the Rosicrucians, for example? A society privy to inner-earth technologies, or at least the ancient records from thousands of years ago. (See Exhibit 4; Part One)


Another interesting fellow whom, I believe, had access to subterranean libraries was an enigmatic incarnate going by the name of ‘Phylos the Thibetan.’ See below:

Before the Airship flap of 1896-97, a young Californian named Frederick Spencer Oliver wrote an unusual book called ‘A Dweller on Two Planets.’ He took notes from a strange entity named Phylos the Thibetan claiming to have ancient knowledge of Atlantis. Oliver, realising the importance of this, produced a manuscript of this bizarre information two years later in 1886.


From Exhibit 8) David Hatcher Childress (  Technology of the Gods: The Incredible Sciences of the Ancients 2000)


“A Dweller on two Planets has remained a popular occult book for over a century, largely because it contains detailed descriptions of life in Atlantis plus devices and technology which were unquestionably well in advance of the time in which it was written. As the cover of one of the book’s editions states, “One of the greatest wonders of our times is the uncanny way in which A Dweller on Two Planets predicted inventions which modern technology fulfilled after the writing of the book.”


“Among the inventions and devices mentioned in the book are air conditioners (to overcome deadly and noxious vapors); airless cylinder lamps (tubes of crystal illuminated by the “night side forces”); electric rifles (guns employing electricity as a propulsive force—rail-guns are a similar, and very new invention); monorail transportation; water generators (an instrument for condensing water from the atmosphere); and the vailx (an aerial ship governed by FORCES OF LEVITATION and repulsion).”


“…the electromagnetic airships of Atlantis are introduced, along with radio and television (don’t forget, this book was written in 1886). It is explained that the airships, similar to zeppelins, but more like a cigar-shaped craft, are electro-magnetic-gravitational in nature. They move through the air using a form of anti-gravity and are also capable of entering the water as submarines.”


“The book also contains a fascinating trip by one of these airships to a building on the summit of the Tetons [in Wyoming, USA]… “From the city of Tolta, on the shore of Miti, our vailx arose and sped away north, across the lake Ui (Great Salt Lake) to its northwestern shore, hundreds of miles distant. On this far shore arose three lofty peaks, covered with snow, the Pitachi Ui, from which the lake at their feet took its name. On the tallest of these had stood, perhaps for five centuries, a building made of heavy slabs of granite. It…was used…as a monastery. There was no path up to the peak, and the sole means of access was by vailx.”


“Then, in a break in the story, Frederick Spencer Oliver alleges that such massive, granite-slab walls were discovered in 1866 by a professor Hayden, allegedly the first person to climb Grand Teton. Says the text, “In the neighbourhood of twenty years ago, more or less, counting from 1886, an intrepid American explorer…went as far west as the Three Tetons. These mountain triplets were the Pitachi Ui, of Atl. Professor Hayden, having arrived at the base of these lofty peaks, succeeded, after indefatigable toil, in reaching the top of the greater peak, and made the first ascent known to modern times. On its top he found a roofless structure of granite slabs, within which, he said, that ‘the granite detritus was of a depth indicating that for eleven thousand years it had been undisturbed’.”



“…The narrative then resumes the journey: “Our vailx alighted upon the ledge without the temple Ui just as nightfall came on. It was very cold there, so far north, and at such an altitude…Next morning after sunrise our vessel lifted and departed for the east, that we might visit our copper mines in the present Lake Superior region. We were conducted in electric trams through the [subterranean] labyrinths of galleries and tunnels…”


“The book is curious and the statements quite interesting, to say the least. Do massive granite slabs in the form of walls exist on the top of Grand Teton? If they did they would certainly be in poor condition and if they exist, they might be thought to be natural. It would be nice to have the idea, begun by the book, that Atlantean ruins exist somewhere in the Grand Tetons, either proven or disproven.” Pages 178-180.


To shed some light on this, my family and I went to Yellowstone Park in the summer of 2005. In a chance meeting I got talking with a Yellowstone native Indian Park Ranger who also works, from time to time, at the Teton National Park and asked her if she knew of any evidence of habitation atop the Grand Teton Mountain Range. To my surprise she said, yes indeed, there is evidence of ancient human occupation up there. The Ranger was an avid climber and even tried to find this locale with another hiking party herself but never made it to the final destination. So yes, I agree with researcher David Hatcher Childress that The Dweller on Two Planets contains more fact than fiction! Were the ancient granite slabs levitated to such a lofty height? I can only speculate. (See also Exhibit U from ‘Nibiru and the Lemurian Connection – Part Four.’)


From Exhibit 1) Brinsley Le Poer Trench (  The Eternal Subject 1974)


“…[In some regions] the [Earth’s] interior must be physical area like the surface of the planet. The inhabitants could be the descendants of a race or races that originally lived on the surface, and who built such amazing structures as the Gate of the Sun at Tiahuanaca, close to Lake Titicaca, 12,000 feet up in the Andes, on the borders of Peru and Bolivia; the platform at Baalbeck, to the north-east of Beirut in the Lebanon, upon which the Romans much later built temples to their gods; the giant enigmatic figures on Easter Island; and, the Fortress of Secsahuaman, in Peru, built with 200-ton stones! Our present…civilization could not build such edifices today”


“The civilization existing on this planet before [the Nibiru] catastrophe struck, must have been a spectacular one. The remains of their fantastic buildings in different parts of the world and the discovery of the Piri Re’is map proves it.” [See Exhibit 10 from ‘Nibiru and the Atlantean Connection – Part One’—GJ]



“It is highly probable that a civilization of that calibre would have been capable of constructing space craft of the types that we call UFOs. In addition to their technological and scientific ability, it is more than possible that an ancient civilization had developed paranormal powers and were capable of performing many feats that most people would term ‘magical’.” Page 155. 

“…In my opinion, the saucers are [ancient machines or] leftovers from one of the Atlantean civilizations and there may be a few from a Lemurian civilization.”

“Too true, a race of people who went inside the Earth at the time of the Atlantean [Phaeton] catastrophe, may well be sending up the flying saucers that are seen in our skies.” Page 156.




Provided below are a few examples of flying vehicles seen in our skies from the distant past, along with the occupants who operate them—our resident terrestrials.  


From Exhibit 6) Louis Pauwels & Jacques Bergier (  The Morning of the Magicians 1964)

“…The sacred Hindu texts, such as the Ramayana and the Maha Bharatra, contain descriptions of airships [Vimanas] appearing in the sky at the very beginning of time and looking like…the shape of an egg or a luminous globe.”

“They could encircle the Earth several times, and were propelled by ‘an ethereal force which struck the ground as they rose’, or by ‘a vibration produced by an invisible force…” Page 121


Exhibit 12) Jim Marrs Alien Agenda 1998)

“Many other attributes were given to the mysterious flying vimanas of Hindu legend, such as the ability to become invisible (stealth technology?), to hear and see at great distances (radio and television?), to ascertain the course of enemies (radar?)[or night-vision?], and to destroy enemy craft. One description of these fabulous machines stated:


These verily wondrous, red of hue, Speed on their course with a roar over the ridges of the sky…And spread themselves with beams of light…Bright, celestial, with lightning in their hands and helmets of gold upon their heads.” Pages 31-32.


Exhibit 13) Brinsley Le Poer Trench (  The Sky People 1960)

“…Desmond Leslie, who did some excellent research for his book, Flying Saucers Have Landed, [wrote] that Ancient India knew the secrets of space ships. Here is his quotation from Ramayana, and translated from the Sanscrit.

“The PUSPAKU CAR, that resembles the sun and belongs to my brother, was brought by the powerful Ravan; that AERIAL AND EXCELLENT CAR, going everywhere at will, is ready for thee. That car, resembling a bright cloud in the sky, is in the city of Lanka...” Page 129.


Exhibit 14) Bill Clendenon (Mercury: UFO Messenger of the Gods – Book Two Section 1993)

“…James Churchward, author of the popular “MU” series, stated that he was shown ancient drawings and instructions of an airship by Hindu priests during his travels in India. The ancient manuscripts described the machinery, engines, and controls to take power from the Earth’s atmosphere in a simple INEXPENSIVE manner as the aircraft flew along. It was stated that the engine was similar to our present-day jet turbines in that air flows or does work from one chamber into another until the air is finally exhausted. Churchward says, “Air was used as a propellant in something resembling a jet engine.” Page 92.

“…in the Samarangana Sutradhara, it is written that the Vimanas…were made of light material with a strong bell-shaped body. [See the bell-shaped UFO in Exhibit 14—GJ] Iron, copper, and lead were used in their construction. They could fly great distances and were propelled by air. A hint is then given concerning their propulsion by the statement that they had “Fire and mercury at the bottom.”

“Strong and durable must the body be made, like a great flying bird of light material. Inside it one must place the mercury engine with its iron heating apparatus beneath. By means of the power latent in the mercury which sets the driving whirlwind in motion, a man sitting inside may travel a great distance in the sky in a most marvelous manner.”


“Four strong mercury containers must be built into the interior structure. When these have been by controlled fire from iron containers, the Vimana develops thunder power through the mercury. And at once, it becomes like a PEARL IN THE SKY.” Page 91.


The image to the right shows the original Title Page of the Indian Manuscript Vymaanika-Shastra, found in 1908 in the Royal Baroda Library. Partial translation reads:

Maharshi Bharadwaaja’s, VYMAANIKA-SHAASTRA. Or Science of Aeronautics…“Yantra Sarvasva” Or “ALL ABOUT MACHINES”

This ancient manuscript describes the use of mercury, copper, magnets, electricity, crystals, gyros, plus antennas to build a certain type of Vimana. So here is a great example of India possessing ancient knowledge of flying machines back in 1908!


From Exhibit 12) Jim Marrs ( Alien Agenda) 

“…such imagery [was not just] confined to the Hindu Vedas. The Popol Vuh, the hallowed book of the Mayan Indians of Central America, described their ancestors as “admirable men…able to know all, and they examined the four corners, the four points of the arch of the sky, and the round face of the Earth.” These Indians knew the Earth was round centuries before the Europeans, indicating they gained such knowledge from someone able to view the Earth from high above.” Page 32.
