    Default Bill Ryan's personal Question-and-Answer thread. Pile it on. :)

    Dear All:

    I figured it might be interesting (and useful) for me to open up a specific thread for questions and answers addressed to myself. I might have done this years ago (possibly! I can't actually remember), but if so, it's been buried under thousands of threads and I definitely can't find it.

    I'll undertake to answer every question with full transparency, the only exceptions being if it involves stating something sensitive about another person without their consent, or if for any other reason something was previously agreed to be off-record.

    Profound and difficult questions are welcome, as are trivial ones. There'll be absolutely no criticism of anyone for any question asked, as long as the sincere intention is to know the answer. Take it away.

    This isn't the first time I've noticed this, but as an example today a Monsanto's thread , there are many on this subject over a period of years, can they all be put together, or, which i suspect is to hard to collate?

    I never met him personally. I never even once discussed him with Kerry. From what I can gather (and I have the same information you do), the work done by Geoff Reed and Kevin Moore, presented here, is rock solid.

    Recently you mentioned there are days that go by where you talk with no one, so I was pleasantly surprised that you turned the camera on yourself in the latest expedition video.

    I have a feeling that you’re preparing to make yourself available for guest spots on other platforms such as Joe from the Carolinas, Dark Journalists and/or join up with other panel guests. Or perhaps invite others to join in the conversation with you?
    Yes?

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks so much for this invitation.

    1. What do you think is the single most significant whistleblower/contactee testimony that has been presented to you in your career so far, and why?

    2. And what do you think is the biggest red-herring testimony so far (even if it had you wondering)?

    3. And which testimony (if any) still has you (most) wondering/perplexed?

    Thanks so much for all you do here, Bill. And especially for, rather than aggrandising yourself and your own reputation as many seem to prefer to do, instead growing a community with the encouragement to everyone to 'think for yourself', 'study the evidence' etc.

    Respect and gratitude.

    Houman
    • How is life in Ecuador?
      There are many advantages. It's super-cheap, super-healthy (organic fruit and veg everywhere, raw milk, fresh spring water from my kitchen tap, no chemtrails), and I'm surrounded by greenery and mountains. No mosquitoes, either: absolutely nothing that bites... go figure.
      For many reading this, they'd find it near-idyllic. But I know almost nobody here (Avalon member Warren Light (wnlight) lives 25 miles away, and we connect periodically, but he's almost the only person here I can call a friend), and it's like being on a very pleasant desert island. I regularly spend periods of several days at a time when I never talk — literally speak a word — to any human (only my dog ). I'm very used to it, but it's kinda strange.
      See this thread, maybe starting here, for my mountain explorations — also solo — which are adventurous, interesting, and hugely enjoyable. Photogenic, too.
    • Does it feel like home?
      Great question. It does, now. It took a while.
    • If you were to do it again, would you settle down there?
      No. I'd have stayed in Switzerland, where I was living really happily for several years until 2011. Leaving Switzerland was an enormous, life-changing, personal mistake.

    Bill, what do you think of Capt Mark Richards?
    I never met him personally. I never even once discussed him with Kerry. From what I can gather (and I have the same information you do), the work done by Geoff Reed and Kevin Moore, presented here, is rock solid.
    You may not have seen the latest video out last evening. A few minutes into it is a clip of Kevin Moore interviewing Richard Dolan at his home. There's a partial transcript of Richard Dolan.
    Bill, you are welcome tothis off topic post.

    Back in the 80s a gentleman named John Algeo posed the following hypothetical, but by no means impossible, situations intended for the individual to decide how they would respond in each situation, given a very limited range of possible responses. Place yourself imaginatively in these circumstances and answer honestly:



    FIRST, let’s suppose that you are walking down the street in a big city late at night. You are alone. Suddenly out of the shadows steps a very large man who shoves you against the wall of a building and says with a threatening tone of voice, “Give me your money. All of it.” You instinctively take a few steps to the right to get away, but he follows and pulls a knife, saying, “Now!” As you are fumbling for your wallet, suddenly you realize that now directly behind the man is an uncovered manhole. If you quickly give him a push, he will fall into it, and quite likely be badly hurt.What do you do? (A) Do you give the mugger your money? (B) Or do you push him into the manhole?

    SECOND, suppose you are a policeman walking down that same city street at midday when you see a chimpanzee that has escaped from a local pet shop. The street is full of pedestrians, and the chimpanzee—obviously in a state of intense agitation—is attacking some of the people. It has already bitten several of them. What do you do? (A) Do you get on your walkie-talkie and call for the animal detail to come with tranquilizer darts? (B) Or do you pull out your revolver and shoot the chimp?

    THIRD, suppose you are a physician. One of your patients is a young woman who is pregnant, in her fifth month. Earlier in her pregnancy you prescribed a drug which she took for some time. Now you have discovered that the drug has side effects, hitherto unknown, that can damage a fetus. Tests reveal that the fetus is indeed malformed. The woman requests an abortion. What do you do? (A) Do you refuse to perform the abortion? (B) Or do you perform the abortion?

    FOURTH, you are still a physician. A woman in her mid-twenties and in excellent health comes to you. She is in her fifth month of pregnancy, but unmarried. She says that she is unwilling to have a child and requests you to abort the pregnancy. She is sexually active, uses birth control only sporadically, and has had abortions before. What do you do? (A) Do you refuse to perform the abortion? (B) Or do you perform the abortion?

    FIFTH, you are driving your automobile in very heavy traffic. You are stopped at an intersection by a red light. There is a long line of cars behind you. Another car from the rear of the line drives forward on the shoulder of the road and pulls up on your right. That car edges forward, and the driver clearly intends to cut in ahead of you. The light turns green. What do you do? (A) Do you let the other driver cut in ahead? (B) Or do you step on the gas in your car to prevent the other car from cutting in?

    SIXTH, you are the President of the United States. The Island of Guam has been attacked and captured by a Far Eastern power which claims it has rightful title to that island on historical grounds. The present inhabitants of the island overwhelmingly want it to remain an American protectorate, but the Far Eastern power is on the island and in military command of it. They have also rejected any discussion of the sovereignty of the island and have declared that the only issue they will discuss is how to evacuate those islanders who want to leave. What do you do? (A) Do you begin setting up evacuation procedures? (B) Or do you order the U.S. military forces to prepare for an invasion of the island?

    SEVENTH, you are Director of the FBI. A terrorist has hidden an atomic bomb on the island of Manhattan. It is set to detonate within a few days unless he is paid several million dollars, ten friends of his who are in jail for terrorism are released, and safe passage to Libya is arranged for all of them. The FBI has the terrorist in custody, but has no leads on the location of the bomb. One of your subordinates suggests that there is only one way to discover the location of the bomb: subject the terrorist to physical torture. What do you do? (A) Do you wait, hoping that the terrorist will have a change of heart? (B) Or do you tell your subordinate to try physical torture?

    EIGHTH, you are the mother of a newborn child. Your child has been kidnapped by a terrorist group and is being held hostage for the release of political prisoners—other terrorists in jail. The leader of the terrorist group has been caught, but refuses to reveal the whereabouts of the others or of the baby. The FBI tells you that they have no clues, but are considering the use of “pressure”—that is, physical torture—to discover where the kidnappers have the baby. What do you do? (A) Do you ask them not to use physical violence on the kidnapper? (B) Or do you tell them you hope they will do whatever is necessary?

    FINALLY, you are a member of a jury that must sentence a convicted murderer. This is his fifth conviction of murder. Twice he killed during the course of armed robberies. Once he was a hired killer. Once he killed a fellow inmate in prison. This time he murdered a kidnap victim. Your choice is to vote for life imprisonment, with automatic review for parole in ten years, or for the death penalty. What do you do? (A) Do you vote for life imprisonment with possibility of parole? (B) Or do you vote for the death penalty?

    I've had a few.

    The obvious one, which many readers may already know about, was when I had an ET appear in my room, back in 1984, when I was 100% wide awake and fully alert.

    It suddenly materialized like something out of a Star Trek beam-me-up-Scottie device, looked at me silently for about 45-60 seconds (hard to estimate time when something like that is happening!), and then disappeared (faded out) again. It looked like a bald-headed 12-year old child, with near human features but quite large (not almond-shaped) eyes.

    If I'd had a camera, I could have taken its portrait. It was about 10 feet away, in full, well-lit, clear view. Not a illusion, a dream, a hallucination, or an invention. One might way I was a little shocked. It's the only time that has happened.

    After all these years I still don't have one reliable answer to the biggest Q and am always astounded that interviewers rarely ask it - like no one asked Bob Dean.

    Sorry, this one question is not one question by nature. I know it's unanswerable without possibly a lot adjoining explanations, but simple is OK. I'm very curious what you've decided is the most likely answer after so many years of cutting edge data gathering.

    IF it even exists, how would you describe the nature of the human soul?

    One, where does it start? Has Bill Ryan always existed, is he billions of years into travel?

    Do you agree with Tom Campbell who calls it an 'individuated unit of consciousness' - and our temporary earth personality (of which there are many other offshoots in the universe at a time) dissolves into it's greater self at birth and the sum of data once called Bill Ryan doesn't continue, but other individuations of the greater soul continue to manifest as others, in a long quest to reduce entropy?

    Or, does Bill Ryan stay Bill Ryan through many sequential lifetimes, possibly creating repeating soul families, learning, growing and eventually evolving/dissolving (back?) into a greater self.

    Or, are we temporary and/or loosh generating constructs in an advanced beings'... or rogue AI's desperate to stay in existence.... virtual reality game?

    Or?

    What especially throws me about the 'nature of soul' at all are the reports of advanced alien's ability to create souls and/or capture souls, store souls for future use, and put them into bodies. It scares me that possibly you can advance in a universe to the point of the ability to 'make' souls. What would that imply about a 'soul'?

    My personal view at this time is that this answer is way more fantastical and unimaginable than our minds can fathom, and especially has nothing to do with any easy to swallow/follow religious explanation.

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Quote "Only a nation of unenlightened half-wits could have taken this beautiful place and turned it into what it is today – a shopping mall. A big ****ing shopping mall. You know that, that’s all you’ve got here, folks. Mile after mile after mile of malls after malls. Many, many malls. Major malls and mini malls. They put the mini malls in between the major malls, and in between the mini malls, they put the mini marts. And in between the mini marts, you got the car lots, gas stations, muffler shops, laundry mats, cheap motels, fast food joints, strip clubs and dirty bookstores. America the beautiful. One big transcontinental commercial cesspool. And how do the people feel about all this? How do people feel about living in a coast to coast shopping mall? Well they think it’s JUST ****ING DANDY!They think it is as cool as can be, because Americans love the mall. That’s where they get to satisfy their two most prominent addictions, at the same time – shopping and eating. Millions of semi-conscious Americans, day after day, shuffling through the malls, shopping and eating."

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks so much for this invitation.

    1. What do you think is the single most significant whistleblower/contactee testimony that has been presented to you in your career so far, and why?

    2. And what do you think is the biggest red-herring testimony so far (even if it had you wondering)?

    3. And which testimony (if any) still has you (most) wondering/perplexed?

    Thanks so much for all you do here, Bill. And especially for, rather than aggrandising yourself and your own reputation as many seem to prefer to do, instead growing a community with the encouragement to everyone to 'think for yourself', 'study the evidence' etc.

    Respect and gratitude.

    • What do you think is the single most significant whistleblower/contactee testimony that has been presented to you in your career so far, and why?
      'Henry Deacon' / Arthur Neumann (his real name). He was 100% authentic. I was convinced then, and I'm convinced now. He really did go to Mars (for short periods), and he really did get there via a device that I called a 'Jumproom' but which he said was called 'The Corridor'.
      It was also Henry who confirmed the codename 'Solar Warden', which most researchers wrongly attribute to Gary McKinnon. I wrote about it on the Camelot blog back in 2007, and then it very gradually went viral from there.
    • And what do you think is the biggest red-herring testimony so far (even if it had you wondering)?
      Pete Peterson. We were all fooled by him. He was certainly a military scientist (or technician) of some kind, but was principally a Walter Mitty character with a really convincing storyline that Kerry Cassidy, David Wilcock and I all fell for.
    • And which testimony (if any) still has you (most) wondering/perplexed?
      Michael Relfe
      in The Mars Records. Relfe was the originator, way back in 2000, of what is now known as the '20-and-back' thing. The two books of his testimony (featuring detailed transcripts of regression sessions) are free and written by his counselor wife Stephanie, he's never once sought publicity or any payment for anything, and has never spoken at any conference.
      As much as I'm certain that Corey Goode is an asset, delusional, or a pathological liar, Relfe's bewildering and VERY detailed testimony — which Corey Goode and others have unashamedly plagiarized — needs to be considered on its own merits and in my opinion can't easily be dismissed.
