During the Vril refugee landing in October of 1938, Gover’s Mill was forced to hide a band of aliens and alien equipment that forever changed New Jersey. If not for a an unfortunate incident in which a plucky radio operator named Willy Ley stumbled upon a hidden Vril signal, the Vril would never had been discovered.
One of the most tragic sagas found in the fabled Chronicles of HWT describes the perils of the Vril. As the story goes, the Vril were hunted for their ability to control various energies, which made them extremely powerful. However, this race was deeply philosophical and had devoted so much to academic pursuits that the race was burgeoning on total genetic change to the mind, such as telekinesis and telepathy. The rumors of their powers produced great envy and fear with many who forced them to abandon their home world and take refuge wherever they could find it.
Some made it to Earth in 1938 with the help of a variety of HWT agents including Orson Welles and the infamous War of the Worlds broadcast diversion. Simply, the broadcast served as reasonable “lightning rod” for all things associated with the Vril landing in New Jersey. After all, who would be capable of separating the reports of an alien invasion from the purported alien invasion?
Willy Ley, who lived near Grover’s Mill in East Windsor Township (nea
r Hightstown), had always loved space and often looked at the stars for clues of life beyond Earth. In early 1946, Ley had been trying to find ways to improve his radio’s signal quality and strength when he decided to try different antennae and broadcast combinations. What Ley did not realize is that several of his attempts had crossed into frequencies and geography that the military had been watching since the War of the Worlds debacle. Simply, some military personnel refused to believe that it was a hoax or a mistake; they suspected it was real!
As Willy Ley continued to modify his radio equipment, he attempted to remove what he thought was unwanted “clutter” from the electrical signal travelling through his radio. this signal, which he believed to be background static, was actually and alien radio signal that the Vril used to communicate with other Vril.
The Vril, who fled to Grover’s Mill under the diversionary cloak of Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds broadcast, never intended to stay in New Jersey. Actually, the landing happened long enough for underground transmitters to be placed near critical electrical components, such as power grids. These devices would emit Vril signals embedded in each different system’s transmissions so that only Vril would find them. In a way, the Vril landing was a message hidden in a lie and presented to the public as a hoax that turned out to be true… sort of…
The Vril immediately left Earth and settled elsewhere in our solar system. The signals left behind in New Jersey’s electrical equipment directed Vril to their settlement on Jupiter like clues in a scavenger hunt. Willy Ley had discovered the signal and attempted to remove it by varying almost every component in his radio. Unfortunately, in 1946, Willy Ley’s efforts resulted in an accidental series of pulses that amplified the New Jersey based signal enough for the signal to reach the moon and return the signal back to Camp Evans, New Jersey.
Once the signal bounced back from the moon, the army scientists at Camp Evans assumed that signal, which did in fact contain alien code, was transmitted by aliens approaching Earth for an invasion. However, the signal which included both an alien code and Willy Ley’s message initiated a sequence of events that forever changed Earth and the Vril’s presence in our solar system.
Upon receipt of Ley’s signal, the Vril’s device on the moon ceased communication with the Vril orbiting Jupiter. Also, after a short delay, the device powered down to prevent detection. Without the Vril’s moon device, the signals originating from Earth bounced back to New Jersey with the same termination signal and deactivated all the Vril devices buried across the state.
Willy Ley, who had been working diligently to eliminate a foreign signal from his radio broadcasts had succeeded in his efforts by triggering a communications detection network that ranged from New Jersey to the moon to Jupiter, which shutdown the Vril communication devices producing the foreign signal.
At the same time Ley removed the signal, he managed to place the U.S. Army scientists on alert fearing an invasion from an approaching alien force. Those same scientists had been looking for the very devices Ley rendered inoperative. In fact, those scientists were located in New Jersey to study the signal, the Vril signal, that started on the same night as the Welles’ broadcast.
The military could not admit defeat in its quest to find the source of the mysterious Vril signal that had become quiet. In an effort to maintain appearances, the scientists used the last fragments of data to trace the signal back to its origin, Willy Ley. Once they realized that he was human they focused on his equipment and technique to “remove” the signal. As they probed deeper, they realized that Ley’s process had created a system capable of emitting a radar signal to the moon and back. In a freak bit of luck, the scientists guessed that Ley was targeting the moon because he was attempting to communicate with them using a high powered radio signal. While wrong, it did give them a big enough reason to continue research and confiscate Ley’s equipment.
To continue researching the Vril and the Vril signal, Camp Evans established Project Diana (goddess of the hunt, wild animals, and the moon). This project would be the stepping stone necessary for the government’s motivation to attempt a trip to the moon and embark on the space missions in which mankind would discover the Vril communication device that Willy Ley switched off with his modified radio.
HWT historians often point out that one of the scientists who worked on the original signal detection team in the 40’s, Project Diana until the 50’s, and the foundation work that led to NASA and the moon landings was the next door neighbor and drinking buddy of Arthur C. Clarke. Their relationship, which many believe to be apocryphal, is what some speculate as the true origin to the short story called, “The Sentinel,” was published in 1948 and featured an object that was discovered on the moon and was left behind by ancient aliens. Later, Clarke would continue the stories of “The Sentinel” with Stanley Kubrik in 2001, A Space Oddessy and other books and movies that involve significant similarities with alien artifacts, Jupiter, and the Vril’s escape to another plane of existence.
Project Diana is often credited as the birth of the American space program, radar astronomy, and the precedent for naming missions, projects, and spacecraft after Roman gods.
Codename Deluge was the HWT operation in which Orson Welles and other HWT agents masked the arrival of Vril to Earth by broadcasting War of Worlds in a manner that convinced many public and military to believe that Earth was being invaded by an alien race. This also obfuscated the insertion of radio signals into all electronics equipment in New Jersey. The resulting public outrage and government curiosity into mysterious signals led to increased powers for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to change regulations for all broadcasts and signals of certain strengths, over certain distances, and containing certain messages.
On a related note, these projects also involved the horn antenna at Bell Telephone Laboratories in Holmdel, New Jersey (Also in Monmouth county). This equipment was used by Project Echo and would lead to the discovery of cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB) that is one of the most significant discoveries in cosmology as it provides evidence of the big bang. While the “Echo” sought by Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson was that of the Willy Ley’s Vril broadcast from 1946, the technology and discoveries are not credited with solidifying cosmology into a science of direct observation instead of a field replete with speculation.
Oh, the Vril escaped using their knowledge of HWT when their moon device signaled that the moon was being approached by an alien force likely to invade and discover their technology. Of course, the moon device was contacted by Ley’s overpowered broadcast that bounced radar waves off the moon and back to Earth and would lead to the development of the space age.
NOTE: The Russians also intercepted the Ley’s reflected radar waves and began a program similar to Project Echo that lead to Sputnik and the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union.
NOTE: Orson Welles performed the War of the Worlds form the Mercury Theatre on the Air. Mercury was the Roman god of messages and the son of Jupiter.
NOTE: Diana was the goddess of the hunt and the moon. Also, she is the daughter of Jupiter. Like the Vril, she had a reputation for tremendous mental abilities and was believed to be able to communicate with and control animals.
In 1965, Lyndon B. Johnson uses a sophisticated cipher during his “Great Society” State of the Union Address to broadcast an ultimatum to the Seeknoms in order to stop an imminent attack from alien forces. During his speech, his words were translated as the following:
“President:…on the basis of your accomplishments…you decide…we can… meet… real value…from bragging…the turmoil of your capital…that pursuit is the test of our success as Nation.”
Unfortunately, Johnson did not realize that the message was transmitted to HWT disciples, not the representatives of the invading army of the Seeknom. In fact, while the message should have been a warning to prevent an assault, the message was taken by the HWT as an invitation to become allies in a much larger war and had nothing to do with the upcoming invasion.
Johnson began working with the HWT to plan Operation Fool’s Gold, an elaborate plan with intentions to subvert an alien invasion force. However, Johnson’s folly would only go undiscovered for a few years as the plan would reach the highest levels of international fame and attention. Ironically, the harder Johnson tried to keep this operation quiet, the louder and more overt it became.
As testimony to his embarrassment, Johnson destroyed all documents and proof of Operation Fool’s Gold. Also, many of those who participated in the clandestine effort were either killed, exiled, or sent to a HWT shrine and forced to take a vow of silence.
Without official documents, the only information that exists is pure conjecture as the result extensive interviews with various humans and aliens that were either directly connected or rumored connected. The most notable individual to the legend of Operation Fool’s Gold was Major Tom Darling, a British intelligence officer assigned to early NASA spaceflight. He was tasked with communicating with the Seeknom and was unofficially on board every early NASA spaceflight, which was made famous during a live concert in which David Bowie, HWT special agent Ziggy Stardust, communicated a heavily encrypted and deeply moving cease-fire treaty in 1972.
His outstanding skills as an interstellar diplomat were almost the lone reason for the cease fire. Here is a brief transcript of the HWT translated message from the performance:
“Ground control to Major Tom…Commencing…love…you’ve really made the grade…now it’s time…there’s nothing I can do…your circuits dead…planet Earth is blue…”
While there has been much debate as to the meaning of “blue” in this context, the greatest amount of attention has been given to the “your circuits are dead,” reference as it seems to suggest a robotic or computer presence on Earth.
Phase I – Replace the Beatles
The initial objective of Operation Fool’s Gold was to infiltrate the Seeknom communication network, which was deeply embedded in the international music world, known as Rock n Roll. The current representatives for the Seeknom were the Beatles, who had recently gained fame for their music announcing plans for world domination:
- Meet the Beatles
- Twist and Shout
- A Hard Day’s Night
According to HWT historians Knought Roo and Hall Fibs, the first Beatles’ albums were euphemisms for the upcoming death of all humans.
After great debate and numerous sack races to establish a plan of action, Operation Fool’s Gold was written and called for the creation of a band to replace the Beatles. Specifically, this group would be so similar to the Beatles that no one would notice them, especially the alien attackers, the Seeknom. This group would consist of 4 members of the HWT military Special Forces:
- Peter Tork, HWT Air Force Commando
- Davy Jones, HWT Navy SEAL
- Michael Nesmith, HWT Marine Corps Recon
- Micky Dolenz, HWT Salvation Army Gift Wrapper
Officially known as the Monkees and recorded weekly on television, the Monkees were set to take the viewers from the Beatles and reduce the alien attackers to negotiations. While the Seeknom and HWT followers were completely unable to distinguish between the Monkees and the Beatles, almost no one else saw any resemblance whatsoever. In fact, the operation began plans to move on to Phase II before the first air date of Phase I.
Despite those in charge of the operation’s belief in its immediate failure, the Seeknom were instantaneously convinced that peace may be necessary for their survival and efforts began to disarm and prepare for peace talks. The most powerful argument behind their belief was the Monkee’s playlist, unimaginably poignant to the Seeknom:
- I’m a believer
- Daydream Believer
- The Door into Summer
- Pleasant Valley Sunday
- Last Train to Clarksville
- Goin’ Down
NOTE: The operatives and mission were put together so quickly, no one even know if they could play instruments or if they would need to for this mission.
Each of these songs presented a clear threat to the Seeknom and initiated the peace process years before Operation Fool’s Gold concluded. Also, the Seeknom were particularly horrified by the Monkee documentary’s theme song, which included the following warning:
“Here we come…We go wherever we want to, do what we like to do…Just look over your shoulder, guess who’ll be standing there… you never know where we’ll be found, so you’d better get ready, we may be comin’ to your town.”
Phase II – Negotiate
As the Monkees began to influence the Seeknom to embrace peace, the Beatles were professing the destruction of Earth. Some refer to this period as the War/Peace Serenade. Operation Fool’s Gold, could not rely on massive deception and opted to directly confront the Seeknom. By 1968, the television documentary The Monkees had been cancelled, and the agents had been assigned their new missions against the Seeknom–establish a dialogue and commence negotiations.
The negotiation conversations continued by using album and song names. Sometimes the bands would use theatrics on album covers to expand the conversation to include emotions and determination.
Notable portions of the conversations include the following:
- Beatles initial threats to Seeknom (and the Monkees) with Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Upon inspection of the album cover, HWT agents and the Seeknom were informed of third-party arbitration by the Rolling Stones.
- The Monkees responded to the Beatles’ threat with astronomical coordinates for a precision attack on Earth in the album Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, & Jones, Ltd.
- The Rolling Stones acknowledged the Beatles’ invitation to serve as arbitrator with the release of Between the Buttons.
- The Rolling Stones then challenged the Monkee’s attack plan with the release of Their Satanic Majesties Request.
- Meanwhile the Beatles’ suggested innocence and passive strength with the release of the Magical Mystery Tour.
- David Bowie entered the conversation with his self-titled album, David Bowie, in an effort to bring Operation Fool’s Gold into the discussion, which had been dominated by the “rock” stars.
- Bowie then released The Man Who Sold the World to suggest that Earth would be reasonable in a negotiation.
- The Rolling Stones, who had been side-lined in the conversation by David Bowie’s intrusion, released a singular response aimed at David, Beggar’s Banquet.
- In response to the Stones, Bowie released Hunky Dory.
- At this point, the Seeknom had decided that Earth was too much trouble and began communicating signs of peace, as seen by the Beatles’ release of Let It Be.
- The Rolling Stones released Let It Bleed in an attempt to incite conflict, which never happened.
- The Monkees then released Changes.
For a brief moment, the most powerful and high profile musicians in the world were having a conversation with aliens, and no one knew. In fact, the desire for the wild and outrageous fueled the public perception of Rock and Roll from the 50’s crooners in suits to the androgynous, outwardly alien-like screamers in the 70’s.
PHASE III – The KISS Army
Since President Johnson was out of the office and working hard to erase Operation Fool’s Gold from history and the negotiations began before the army could be established, this phase of the operation was cancelled. To defend Earth in the event of total war between HWT, the Seeknom, and Earth, KISS was created to engage in both the Rock and Roll conversation as well as to command legions of troops. They were known as:
- Paul Stanley: The Starchild
- Gene Simmons: The Demon
- Ace Frehley: The Spaceman (The Space Ace)
- Peter Criss: Catman
While equally intimidating as rockers and warriors, KISS and the KISS army were never used in battle. The records of Operation Fool’s Gold were destroyed, but the legacy continued through the many bands, like KISS, that remained in place to defend Earth. Also, despite the operation’s failure, many U.S. and world leaders recognized Johnson’s efforts and contributing to its safety. To further that safety and publicly honor Johnson, NASA opened the Johnson Space Center as the center-piece for its space program, which would continue to work with the HWT and the Seeknom.
NOTE: Years later, the Rolling Stones would release “It’s Only Rock and Roll” in an effort to quiet rumors that rock bands, musicians, and rock music were involved with government cover-ups and alien communications. Of course, most humans would have accepted the Rolling Stones suggestion about Rock and Rock except for David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, in which Bowie describes his involvement as a HWT agent — named Ziggy Stardust.
