Alien contactee Alex Collier quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson as the words of an Andromedan
Who is Alex Collier?
Who is Alex Collier? Well, that depends on what you have been told and what you believe. The man known under this name is a very famous alien contactee who claims to have been in contact with the Andromedans for most of his life.
Researcher Michael Horn, however, claims otherwise and reveals that Collier is a former IRS worker who changed his name from Ralph Amagran to Alex Collier. Wikipedia files state that he was also known as Ralph Amigron. Is all this true?
I have to admit I was taken in by Collier's story for many years but my doubts came into play when I realised he was quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson and passing the words off as those of Vissaeus, one of his alien friends from Andromeda.
The love that you withhold
For many years I had followed Alex Collier's lectures as a source of information on how this planet got into the mess it is in and how we all got here long ago. I had believed his stories about the humanoid Lyraens and the Alpha Draconans, a reptilian race, and accepted that he was in touch with blue human-like beings from Andromeda, with his friends Vissaeus and Morenae in particular.
But then one day I realised that words that he had claimed were something that Vissaeus had said to him was actually a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson. In other words it was what a human from Earth had originally said and not the wisdom of an extraterrestrial!
The quote is: "The love that you withhold is the pain that you carry." Google it and you will find loads of references confirming that Emerson said this. However, in an interview Collier gave to Rick Keefe for his UFO Hypotheses project, he claims it was the most important memory he had of his meetings with his alien friend (see video below).
Something didn't make sense here. Doing some more of my own research I discovered Michael Horn's report that explains how the whole thing was a massive and ongoing hoax. You can read the report in the link given towards the end of this hub.
I realised, of course, that the stories about alien civilisations have been taken on board by Stewart Swerdlow and David Icke too. Icke has become even more famous for talking about reptilian shape-shifters whom he says rule the world. They are said to come from Draco and are just like those that Collier talks about. I happen to know that Swerdlow was one of the people who originally told David Icke about the Reptilians. I have one of Swerdlow's books - Blue Blood, True Blood - Conflict & Creation - and in it are many of the other alien races that Collier is on about as well.
So how far does all this go? Well, Collier, Icke and Swerdlow all have very large numbers of followers who accept what they say, as I have done in the past myself, and it seems that this sort of disinformation (and that is what it appears to be) gets a lot of coverage in ufology, paranormal and conspiracy theory circles.
Collier took a break from public appearances for many years but made a comeback in 2009. He went on to appear at a Project Camelot "Awake and Aware" event in Los Angeles amongst other talks he gave. The same year he had recorded a long interview filmed again by Rick Keefe and at the beginning you can see Collier drinking and joking about "the aliens" before talking 'seriously.' When I saw this, I accepted that he was simply messing about, but in light of my realisation about him quoting Emerson as the words of an alien, and having read Michael Horn's report, I have had to change my mind. Maybe he really was joking after all?
And it is not just the Reptilians as bizarre information that David Icke has been talking about but he has recently written a book about the Moon as a massive hollow spacecraft. I came across this idea in Alex Collier's work long before Icke was on about it as well.

David Icke and the Hollow Moon
David Icke presents the fantastic theory that the Moon is hollow in his recent book Human Race Get Off Your Knees. He goes as far as suggesting that the Reptilians have been using it as their HQ to control the "Matrix" we live in on this planet.
Bizarre as this theory sounds when I first heard that Icke had written about this and was now talking about it I realised I had already heard this idea in the work of Alex Collier.
So is Alex Collier the man with a fantastic imagination who came up with a lot of these weird ideas that are currently circulating and being accepted as reality by many? Or did he take a lot of it from Billy Meier's work as suggested by Michael Horn?
Or is all of it a lot of disinformation originally started by the CIA? That is another idea that goes around in conspiracy theory that the CIA deliberately get false info out there to distract and confuse people.

But it all gets worse! Now I am all for Michael Horn digging deep and revealing what he has found out about Alex Collier but it is nowhere near as simple as that. He accuses Collier of having taken and altered some of the Billy Meier material but Collier had complained "I am being bitterly attacked from the Billy Meier /FIGU Cult camp." Horn states: '..there's no "Billy Meier/FIGU Cult camp". But he is being challenged, by me, to prove his claims of the last nearly 20 years,...'. It turns out that MIchael Horn all along is a big supporter of Meier and FIGU is Billy Meier's organisation. Sadly this whole matter seems to be like infighting to me, something I have witnessed before in the fields of ufology and conspiracy theory!
Billy Meier happens to be one of the most famous and successful alien contactees ever but many people do not accept his claims and feel that his UFO photos are fakes. Even his former wife has spoken out confirming that he made up the stories and faked the photographs.
So who and what are we to believe? I'll leave you all to make up your own minds!
