CE-5 and Human-Initiated Contact

Dr. Steven M. Greer
CSETI founder and International Director

Dr. Greer is widely regarded as the world's foremost authority on the subject of extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI), and is the founder and international director of the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI). A lifetime member of Alpha Omega Alpha, the nation's most prestigious medical honor society, Dr. Greer is an emergency physician and former chairman of the department of emergency medicine at Caldwell Memorial Hospital in North Carolina.

Dr. Greer, as director of CSETI, has led research teams throughout the world investigating the existence of ETI, and on several occasions has successfully established preliminary contact and communication with extraterrestrial spacecraft at close range. He has met with and provided briefings for senior members of government, military and intelligence operations in the United States and around the world, including senior CIA officials, Joint Chiefs of Staff, White House staff, senior members of Congress and congressional committees, senior United Nations leadership and diplomats, senior military officials in the United Kingdom and Europe, and cabinet-level staff members of the Japanese government, among others.

"CSETI has... succeeded in intentionally establishing contact with extraterrestrial spacecraft, on two occasions at very close range, and with multiple witnesses present."
From CSETI literature

CE-5 ( Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind): a report of deliberate human behavior which was followed by an obvious response from an unidentified object and/or humanoid. The response of the craft or being included effects suggesting its response was not merely coincidental. 
from the description of the book, CE-5, by Richard F. Haines, Ph.D.



The Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence, the only worldwide organization dedicated to establishing peaceful and sustainable relations with extraterrestrial life forms.

CSETI was founded in 1990 by Dr. Steven M. Greer, who is the International Director.  CSETI has two primary goals:  Establish a real-time diplomatic and research initiative to contact extraterrestrial civilizations, leading to a sustainable, peaceful and mutually beneficial relationship (The CE-5 Initiative); and Educate all sectors of human society about this subject in a credible and non-harmful manner (The Project Starlight Coalition)

The CSETI Project currently has around 25 working groups worldwide which are conducting research, and is guided by an Advisory Board and an International Director, Steven M. Greer, M.D. A senior diplomatic and research team known as the Rapid Mobilization Investigative Team (RMIT) responds to areas of significant apparent extraterrestrial activity and has successfully established contact with extraterrestrial spacecraft in the United States, England, Mexico, and Belgium.**

CSETI - Close Encounters of the 5th Kind Initiative (CE-5)

CE-5 is a term describing a fifth category of close encounters with Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI), characterized by mutual, bilateral communication rather than unilateral contact. The CE-5 Initiative has as its central focus bilateral ETI-human communication based on mutual respect and universal principles of exchange and contact. CE types 1-4 are essentially passive, reactive and ETI initiated. A CE-5 is distinguished from these by conscious, voluntary and proactive human-initiated or cooperative contacts with ETI. Evidence exists indicating that CE-5s have successfully occurred in the past, and the inevitable maturing of the human/ETI relationship requires greater research and outreach efforts into this possibility. While ultimate control of such contact and exchange will (and probably should) remain with the technologically more advanced intelligent life forms (i.e., ETI), this does not lessen the importance of conscientious, voluntary human initiatives, contact and follow-up to conventional CE-s types 1-4.

Brief Summary of CSETI Research Results 1992-1993

A. Mexico January 30, 1993

On January 30, 1993, the RMIT was activated and sent to the volcanic zone outside of Mexico City, Mexico. Just before 12:30 a.m., local time, on January 31, 1993, while engaging in CSETI protocols to vector extraterrestrial spacecraft into the sight, the entire team was briefly engulfed in a beam of amber light, which originated in the northwest sky. No conventional source for this beam was found. Later, on February 1, 1993, the team was able to vector into the site a large triangular craft, measuring 300-800 feet in diameter. This craft responded to the team's signals, circled the area, and descended with it's leading edge fully illuminated in what appeared to be a landing attempt. This triangular craft was approximately 300 feet in elevation and within 500 feet from the research site. It had a brilliant light at each corner of the triangle, and a red pulsating light in the center. It was accompanied by a small red-orange craft. As the craft left the area, it repeatedly returned signals from the team, and then dipped below a ridge and was not seen again that night. This contact lasted about ten minutes. On February 2, 1993, the same type craft returned, this time under 200 feet, and again signaled in an interactive manner with the team.

During the last 24 hours the team was in Mexico, it encountered, during daylight hours, brilliant, shiny, metallic discs which hovered and flew near the team members. Four such discs on four separate occasions were encountered by the team on February 3 and 4, 1993.

B. England July 27, 1992

At approximately 12:20 a.m. on July 1992, on an 1800 acre farm near Alton Barnes, Whitshire, England, the CSETI RMIT was successful in vectoring into the site, a large, brilliantly lit, disc shaped, domed craft, measuring 80-150 feet in diameter. The craft was silent, and less than 400 yards away, and came to within 10-30 feet of the ground. It was, in fact, in the same wheat field in which the RMIT was located. The craft signaled repeatedly to the team of four researchers, and a small amber object at one point detached from the object and went up into the clouds. While at close proximity, this craft caused magnetic disturbances to the compass so that the needle rotated counterclockwise 360 degrees around the compass dial. This near landing event concluded with the craft receding into the mist and out of visible range after 10-15 minutes of signaling with the team.

C. Florida March 15, 1992

On March 14, 1992, at 8:24 p.m., CST on a beach near Pensacola, Florida, over 40 people present for a CSETI research team training exercise, were able to vector into the area four silent, hovering craft, which signaled repeatedly to the group, and changed formation in response to the group's light signaling. This event was observed from six locations, and videotapes and photographic evidence were obtained. These objects were under intelligent control and moved towards the group while exchanging light signals with the team. this event lasted for 10-15 minutes.

D. Belgium February 5, 1992

Having learned of a significant UFO wave in Belgium, the CSETI RMIT, consisting of four people, departed for Brussels on February 5, 1992. On the night of February 9-10, the team conducted research under unfavorable weather conditions near the town of Eupan, Belgim. At 12:30 a.m. on the 10th the team saw at low elevation, four objects brightly lit, approximately 300 feet away, which vanished suddenly after about five minutes of observation. The team returned the next morning to the site, and no explanation for the objects was found. On the night of February 10, 1992, the team proceeded to a high ridge near Henri-Chapelle, and at 2:45 a.m., on the 11th, successfully vectored into the site, a large triangular, silent craft which dipped below the cloud cover to reveal a brilliantly lit apex of the triangle. The light on this part of the craft was about the size of a full moon. A few minutes later the team heard a low vibratory rumbling directly above them, which seemed to be turned on and off in rapid succession twice. This vibration was above the team in the clouds and was stationary.

CE-5 : Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind
242 Case Files Exposing Alien Contact

by Richard F. Haines, PhD

Each file probes reports where humans around the world have seen and deliberately signalled to unidentified aerial objects or beings.  Exhaustively researched and thoroughly referenced, CE-5 was compiled from technical data, research and eyewitness interviews. 

Sample Case:  
Case No. 87
Date: 94-04-25 (Apr. 25, 1994)
Local Time: approximately 2230
Duration: unknown
Location: 25 miles from Great Falls, Montana
No. Witnesses: sever
DB: kk  CB: a  PB-1: a  PB-2: x  UFOD: 0

Abstract:  A large, disc-shaped craft landed in a field some twenty-five miles from Great Falls.  The field was owned by the eye witnesses.  The object was "the size of a jeep, or import pick-up.... "It flashed red and blue lights and, when the witnesses tried flashing their headlamps at it, the craft responded in kind with a brilliant white light directeed at the witnesses.  It then flew straight up and disappeared."

Comments:  Here is another case involving a small unidentified aerial object which responds in-kind to the flashing of automobile headlights and then followed by the object's departure.  Are the UFO lights but an artifact of the propulsion system, some deliberate signal prior to leaving, or something else?
