Once in a while comes a book that changes our pre-conceived notions of a subject matter.
The soon-to-be-published book, UFO HIGHWAY (www.ufohighway.com) by Anthony Sanchez, could just be such a book.
Anthony Sanchez has spent over 20 years accumulating a wealth of pertinent information on the subject of the rumors behind UFOs in conjunction with some of the most significant military installations in the U.S., especially in the American Southwest.
His new book, UFO HIGHWAY, is a fresh new look at the military's "connection" to the rumors about UFOs. This is not a book about whether UFOs exist or not. It is neither a book about "reptoids" eating humans in a secret underground facility, nor is it about the claims made by Thomas Castello who may not even have existed at all. It surpasses those unsubstantiated claims.
This book is filled with information previously not published in any other books of this nature.
His fascinating, recent interview with a retired USAF colonel is probably one of the highlights of this book. This interesting interview took place, in May of 2010, only a few months before the completion of this book.
Just like the author, Anthony Sanchez, I myself also have done an extensive research on similar topics for over twenty years, spending many years investigating locations such as Area 51 in Nevada and its connections with other important sites such as southern California's Edwards AFB and remote aerospace facilities in the Antelope Valley, most of which had the outward facade of radar cross section testing sites. I had also visited the surrroundings near China Lake Naval Weapons Testing Center in the California desert. Yes, there is no doubt in my mind, just as Anthony Sanchez suggests, that there are "connections" among these facilites, including the Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah.
I also had a tremendous interest in Colorado's Cheyenne Mountain and its NORAD underground complex (not only because my wife had a unique oppportunity to go through a special, military-guided "tour" inside the complex in late 1978 through her brother's military connections - and, interestingly, a year before some strange things started happening in neighborning northern New Mexico.)
I also had taken a special interest in New Mexico's White Sands Missile Testing Ranges (where today, the leading-edge directed energy weapons systems are being tested), as well as Los Alamos National Laboratories (site of the world's foremost human genome research), Sandia Laboratories and Phillips Laboratories, the latter two of which are inside Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, as well as the Manzano underground nuclear storage complex, also within the base.
Just as Anthony Sanchez seems to suggest in his book, there is no doubt in my mind that the regions especially east of the Four Corners area of New Mexico contain some of the most important U.S. government secrets, hidden from the public.
Yes, and above all, my greatest curiosity has been the long-persisting rumors about the alleged Dulce underground base in New Mexico. I am convinced that although we have not come up yet with any solid, physical, tangible, irrefutable evidence that there is such a facility in Dulce, there are plenty of circumstantial evidences that point to the possibility that there is "something" there.
I have a trusted friend who was a former proprietor of one of the largest ranches in Dulce who declared to me this year that indeed there is a facility there. Beyond that, he could not make a comment. At the present time he has a sensitive position as the department head of the Department of Agriculture in a well-known state university in New Mexico. After retirement from his present position, he, too, will soon come out and will help us expose the truth about Dulce.
As for Area 51 in Nevada, sure, it is public knowledge now that Area 51 is a vibrant military research, development and testing complex conducted by many defense contractors who provide a variety of highly compartmentalized projects.
But there is no proof that there could not be something "more" besides all the superficial facade of the complex.
Yes, practically the whole world has already heard of the claims of Bob Lazar concerning Area 51. For now, there seems to be nothing that can back up his claims. However, at the same time, there is no way to disprove his claims either.
Anthony Sanchez' new book, UFO HIGHWAY, appparently derives its title from the actual Highway 375 in Nevada which was officially declared by the State of Nevada as EXTRATERRESTRIAL HIGHWAY in the late 1990's because of its proximity to Area 51.
However, Anthony's UFO HIGHWAY goes beyond that.
All these significant military bases are interconnected through a symbolic "highway".
There is plenty of commonality among these interesting facilities. And they all relate to the rumors concerning UFOs and how "beliefs" play a major role in the military's maintenance of secrecy.
Yes, we all know that there doesn't seem to be any hard, solid, tangible, physical evidence to say that there is more than just the superficial structures behind all these facilities. Yet there are circumstantial evidences that seem to point out that there is "something" under the physical facade of these facilities.
Anthony F. Sanchez received his BSc. in Computer Information Systems from Western Governors University of Salt Lake City, UT in 2008. In addition to being a Software Consultant for the State of California through his own company, Matrix Innovative Systems, Inc., Anthony has been employed for 15 years as a Software Engineer working for 3Com, Intel, Acer, Netscape Communications, and Hewlett Packard performing high-level software development supporting scientific engineering and business intelligence projects.
He became interested in UFOs back in 1989, at the time Area 51 surfaced as a public phenomenon. Since 2000 he has researched the subject matter thoroughly employing various scientific methods and hands on approaches, thus compiling over 20 years worth of UFO related research data.
Anthony Sanchez' UFO HIGHWAY may be a very important book that could make us think again and take a fresh new look at things behind the facade of these facsinating locations.
The timing of this book couldn't be better. There is talk among a segment of the population concering the upcoming December 21, 2012 scenario and its possible UFO connections.
However, probably nothing catastrophic will take place on that date. Rather, in my opinion, December 21, 2012 could simply be a beginning of a gradual shift in human consciousness, a beginning of a gradual personal transformation in each of us, a beginning of a new understanding of the relationship of this earth and its inhabitants to other "realities" that affect us.
It will be up to the readers who will read this book to decide what that personal transformation will bring in their individual lives.
Anthony Sanchez' new book:
by Jean-Jacques Perrey and Dana Countryman
(available through http://www.oglio.com)
As one half of the pioneering 60s pop duo, Perrey and Kingsley, the 80-something mad French scientist Jean-Jaques Perrey shows no signs of slowing down. This reporter has it on good authority that he still travels to Vancouver Island with new music, to debut it for the local dolphins — if they swim around the underwater speakers in circles, he knows it’s worthy of being released; if they swim away, the efforts go back in the vault.
Managing to remain just as whimsical as the duo’s previous 2006 effort (“The Happy Electropop Music Machine!” also available through www.oglio.com), “Destination Space” at times displays a more sophisticated understanding of the type of folk drawn to electronic music, even in its most extremes (read: they sometimes lack a sense of humor; YOU try making a one-liner out of the concept of musique concrete and see what happens!)
Of course, the title track features a chorus of mewling kittens and barking dogs built around a delightful harpsichord melody; and bubbly dementia and funky guitar swirl around “Funky Little Space Girl,” a poppy paean to sexy extraterrestrials.
More relaxed space aged pop (“The Spy From Outer Space,” “Pour L’Amour de Toi”) can be found than on the legendary Mr. Perrey’s recent work. Synth-heavy and reminiscent of British studio wizard Joe Meek, the opening “Prologue” segues out with a sample of astronaut patter—and throughout, this disc flies through the musical cosmos, a perfect soundtrack for astral travel, lunar landings, and spacey shindigs.
