Dan Burisch summary

This page is a reformatted version of the original Project Camelot publication.


The following text was written by Dan Burisch's colleague, Marci McDowell, with a number of clarifying footnotes and other links added by Project Camelot. We offer it in response to a number of requests for a summary of the very complex and important edifice of testimony which is Dan Burisch's personal story.

Dr. Dan B Catselas Burisch - A short biography

Dr. Burisch was a Senior Operative/Scientist, responsible first to the Committee of the Majority and the Majestic 12 (1986-2003), then only to the Majestic 12 (2003-2005), before it was adjourned (October 12, 2005).

During the 1991 Gulf War, he was assigned to a Black/Ops Unit, and was deployed into the International Coalition’s Zone of Operations, for the purpose of counteracting a rogue military unit’s intended application of unauthorized biological warfare agents against the Iraqi Army.

After his return, he was ultimately assigned as a 'Microbiologist V' at the Papoose Lake Facility (S4) and operated as a Working Group Leader on Project Aquarius, where his responsibilities included leading a group of scientists in the investigation of a 'J-Rod’s' (extraterrestrial entity's) neuropathy. Such investigation included his being introduced into a Clean Sphere containment unit and interacting directly with the J-Rod, then processing, evaluating, and transforming tissue samples for reintroduction into the J-Rod, with the intent to ameliorate the pathology.

In the late 1990s, Dr. Burisch was formally censured by the Committee of the Majority for his violation of direct orders, but had his academic credentials restored in 2006 by intervention of a very private Religious order, based in France. (His credentials may be verified upon request.) During 2005, for a short time, Dr. Burisch sat as a pro-tem member of the Majestic 12, as MJ-9, and was finally assigned as H-1-Maj, the designated person to disclose the "extraterrestrial human lineage (time travel) information". He completed his final orders in September, 2006, and is retired from service.

In June 2007 he was asked my the new Majestic group to participate for several months in a special project concerning issues of "National Security", which invitation he accepted. This assignment lasted until 14 December, 2007.

Dr. Burisch continues to conduct and publish research, as Chief Scientist of the “Eagles Disobey Research Consortium” and Corporate Director of Eagles Disobey, Inc., with Dr. Marcia McDowell (President, Eagles Disobey, Inc.). Their publications include the image analysis of Mars anomalies, Acoustic research aimed toward the Healing Arts and Sciences, and an unusual discovery, designated 'Lotus'.

Dr. Burisch will make a public announcement about Lotus during his scheduled interview by Rob Simone on 1 March, 2008 at the coming International UFO Congress at Laughlin, Nevada.


Dan's experiences with Extraterrestrials, and Majestic-12, go back about 20 years. He was inducted into Majestic in 1986, while he was a student at UNLV. Even before he was at UNLV he had a long and distinguished history in microbiology, working for many years with the Los Angeles Microscopical Society, and studying with Dr. John Bunyan (England)1, so Majestic knew he was gifted.2

They offered him an opportunity to work in BlackOps, in his specialty, and become well respected in Special Applications and the chance to further his education into areas he'd only dreamed about. So he said 'yes' and found himself being trained and groomed to work up at Area-51 on 'exotic' biological materials.

At that time, Dan did not know that he was in fact being 'mentored' by one of the highest ranking members of the Majestic-12, who felt (and still continues to feel) a great affection and connection to Dan because of the events surrounding Dan's abduction in the early 1970s.3 While working on exotics Dan (by then, Dr. Dan Crain, having completed his Ph.D) learned that the tissue he had been studying was in-fact Extraterrestrial in nature.

Dan found that he was being given a surprising measure of leeway, while working within the facility. He was still required to follow all the protocols, however his badge (as we later learned) was keyed to allow him access to multiple levels within the laboratory complexes at both Area-51 and S-4.4 This permitted him a range of movement, and access to other projects rarely enjoyed by those working in highly structured Special Application environments.

Dan became familiar with a project called 'Looking Glass' which involved a back-engineered Extraterrestrial device originally designed to be a portal opening mechanism for Stargate-type travel - which had (has) the capacity to bend time/space so that events over the forward and rear event horizons could be viewed. When it is paired up with a second device using the settings, events can not only be viewed but heard and more. This device was also being tested for communications protocols and transportation applications as recently as 2003-2004 before being dismantled for safety reasons as we enter further into the highly energetic space in and around the galactic plane.5

While being introduced to these other projects, Dan began to work as part of the Aquarius-J-Rod team6 which was tasked with the problem of figuring out why the J-Rods (commonly called Grays)7 were suffering from a debilitating medical condition that affected their nerves. Part of this work involved taking physical tissue samples from the J-Rod housed deep below S-4 in a 'Clean Sphere' designed to support his atmospheric and environmental needs.

It soon became apparent that these Extraterrestrials were not all that different from us. In fact, as communications improved, it was learned that they are not so much space travelers as time/space travelers, using a small planet in the Gliese System as a local base (approximately 15 light years from Earth) where they can stage for their trips here. Using Looking Glass technology (which might be more properly called Stargate technology) they traveled in time from a Human future, which is real to them, but only potential for us.8

Dan was introduced into the protocols surrounding the J-Rod by having him be part of the backup team, while his supervisor Steven M. would suit up and go in to do the tissue sample removals. However, the J-Rod began to reject Steven and make demands that Dan be allowed to suit up and enter the Clean Sphere for the tissue samples instead.

This created some immediate problems in the team structure as Dan was the newest member and not nearly senior enough in time or experience for such a responsibility. But the J-Rod was insistent. Dan was rapidly promoted within the team and soon found himself being trained in the protocols necessary for entering into the Clean Sphere and work directly with the J-Rod. (Dan details these steps in great detail in the DVD8- going from the very start of the process, entering the gantry, the protocol for entering the Clean Sphere, the sampling method, what it was like to work directly with the Extraterrestrial, their communications, the exit protocols and debriefing - he goes step by step so everybody can follow it.)

It was later learned that the reason that the J-Rod insisted on this change of personnel, was because he recognized Dan as one of the abducted children on the craft he had been aboard that day back in the early 1970s. It is always difficult to explain this, since discussing the movement through time as well as space is difficult.9 This particular J-Rod had been traveling in the company of a group of P45s (a J-Rod group originating approximately 45,000 years into the future) who were doing the abduction sampling that day in the early 1970s. He then traveled back to 1953 on a different mission which ended in a crash near Kingman, AZ. He was recovered from that crash location and taken to S-4 and housed there. As a result of his presence on the craft when Dan was abducted, he felt a strong connection to Dan.

Dan eventually became accustomed to his new role, but on one occasion, while he was working directly with the J-Rod, there was a break in the protocol, and the J-Rod took a step towards Dan. This was still early enough in their working relationship that it startled Dan who backed up (again a violation of the protocol) and ended up catching his heel on a floor grate and falling backwards. The J-Rod climbed up on top of him, and sat on his chest while taking this opportunity to 'think' deeply to Dan, sharing a great deal of his people's history and his own personal experiences with Dan.10

This was completely unprecedented, and prompted an emergency reaction among the support teams. In the time it took to get somebody else into the Clean Sphere and rescue Dan, the J-Rod 'downloaded a vast amount of information into Dan's mind. Dan was unconscious when he was finally removed, and spent (as I understand it) several days in a coma. He was maintained in their medical facilities at S-4 until he was well enough to return to travel back to Area-51 and then to Las Vegas.11

Since that time, there have been many unsuccessful attempts to get Dan to share with Majestic what the J-Rod shared with him during that interaction. Dan has refused to say much, but was inordinately interested in our space program (among other things) afterwards.

Dan gathered tissue samples from the J-Rod for about 2 years, ending in 1996. The Q-94 document (it was leaked out to me by Steven M. before his death) is an early draft of a document that Dan and Steven were writing to go up to the Cover Committee, concerning their work with the King-series tissue samples. It's important for many reasons, including the rare glimpse it gives into the way things were done, and how they were written up inside a BlackOps project.

In the years that followed, Dan worked with Majestic as they needed him, and maintained a cover job in Las Vegas (several actually - in the field of security and safety).

One day, while looking through images of Mars in the NSSDC (NASA gallery) Dan spotted something that looked like another face on the Martian surface, in the area called 'Inca City'. During 1997 and 1998 Dan worked with Marcia McDowell on a book called Eagles Disobey: The Case for Inca City, Mars. The fact that he was writing this book, and finding an amazing number of anomalies in this previously ignored region, had many in Majestic sitting up and taking notice.

They again pressed him for information about what the J-Rod shared with him, and whether it had anything to do with his discoveries. Dan still refused to tell them anything. Then NASA announced that they had discovered evidence of life in a Martian meteorite, which Dan reviewed and found suspiciously similar to a small microbe discovered by one of the NASA panelists 30 years previously in Australia, and immediately went on record challenging NASA's announcement.

As our work grew closer to publication, and became more volatile, the threats started. It was a very difficult time, as both Dan and I were afraid for ourselves as well as our loved ones, but we decided to push forward, regardless of the risk. Finally the Committee of the Majority (the body that had superceded Majestic-12 for a time, ending in approx. 2002) utterly frustrated with Dan's refusal to be stopped, issued a demand that Dan stop his work on the book.

We later learned that they were afraid of how close we were coming to issues concerning the doctrine of convergent time line paradox12 (the problems that had been caused by the J-Rods who were using their technology to travel back in time, and thereby creating overlaying time anomalies). Of course, Dan refused. The book was published and released in late 1998. Almost immediately the Committee took action against Dan, causing his Ph.D degree to be vacated. (This was not all that difficult for them, since Majestic had brokered the deal for his schooling to the Ph.D level in the first place, so they controlled the 'playing field'.) The loss of his credential hit Dan so hard that he suffered a heart attack and was hospitalized.

Upon his recovery Dan found himself seriously on the 'outs' with Majestic and the Committee of the Majority. Angrier than ever Dan continued to look for more anomalies on Mars and we produced two more small publications (which will be worked into the rewrite of Eagles Disobey currently underway) showing amazing finds on the surface of Mars.

By the time 1999 came around, the Committee of the Majority was determined to do something about Dan's behavior. They couldn't outright 'get rid' of him, as he had heavy connections into the upper echelons of Majestic, as well as deep connections with the J-Rods who were in treaty negotiations with Majestic and major governmental bodies, plus he also had familial connections due to his marriage into a Majestic family line that reached all the way back to the early 1940s and the Roswell incidents.

So, the decision was taken to try to modify his memories of rebelling against their authority (in essence the entire period of time where he and I worked on Mars issues, and wrote the book Eagles Disobey: The Case for Inca City, Mars) and move he and his family to a new location, with new cover jobs, and a completely different environment.

To facilitate this, Dan was taken up north, and underwent a process involving experimental neuropeptides (I do not know all the details). Afterward, he was placed in Mississippi where he was supposed to begin a new life. What nobody in the Committee of the Majority had counted upon was the fact that Dan's mind utterly rejected the conditioning, and soon thereafter he began to experience memory breakthroughs.

Fearing for his health under the stress of these unpredicted results (and fearing that they might have ruined one of their best scientists) they decided to take steps to reverse what they'd done. Dan was collected and taken back into secure facilities, and eventually returned to Las Vegas, where the family had been re-established to await his return. Thankfully Dan recovered from this and settled back into his normal life in Las Vegas, concentrating on his research and personal studies.

As time moved on, Dan became deeply involved in his study of the Voynich manuscript13 and his personal research project called the Lotus protocol. He also became involved in the T-9 treaty negotiations through his Majestic connections, during which he was instrumental in getting the number of treaty-authorized abductions reduced to zero. More recently, he started researching the Solfeggio frequencies. This has grown into a book-length project that has received the kind attention of Dr. Len Horowitz and Dan Winter.

What started out as a small side project is gathering momentum as we already have publishers asking about it. We anticipate its release toward the end of 2006 or early 2007. In late 2003 two things happened: I found myself approached by Majestic and inducted (so that I would stop being a thorn in their side) and offered the chance to work directly with Dan to help him complete certain projects that they felt were important. (Why didn't they just kill me? I learned, after my induction, that my father was deeply involved as a courier between countries for the Majestic-12 while the creation of the Committee of the Majority was being undertaken in the early to mid-1960s.)

The other thing which happened was that Dan once again saw the J-Rod who had become his friend at S-4. The circumstances are more thoroughly explained by Dan in the DVD, but (suffice to say that) in an utterly shocking move Dan helped the J-Rod use a Stargate device (in operation nearby) so he could return home.14 Majestic personnel were (once again) very upset with Dan over this action, but there was nothing they could do.

Then, in the fall of 2005, Dan was presented with orders for him to speak openly and truthfully about his experiences with the J-Rod as well as his time at Area-51/S-4 and his history with Majestic. It was a shocking decision taken by the Majestic-12 and once his acceptance of their orders was transmitted back, they stood in adjournment giving Dan approximately one year to accomplish this mission.

The orders were also addressed to me (to facilitate Dan's completion of this mission) and others to protect him as he fulfilled his orders. When we told our associates of the situation, we immediately received offers of help. In fact, we tried twice to work with people who said 'all they wanted to do was help'. Unfortunately, each time, within a matter of months, their 'help' changed into something very different. We knew that the only way to complete our orders within the time frame was to take matters into our own hands. This meant that I had to learn how to edit, and hope for the best.

The DVD that Dan and I have recently released (in which Dan talks in detail about his experiences at Area-51, S-4 and his time in Majestic) was done in fulfillment of those orders. Dan speaks to issues about the doctrine of convergent timeline paradox and how the Stargate (Looking Glass) technology impacts us all. It's not just a form of new technology; it is something that has the potential to cause irreparable harm as we move through this critical time in our history.15

We could either be faced with great catastrophe or a renaissance for humanity, depending upon how we handle these next few years, physically (in terms of keeping this technology from proliferating) and spiritually. The issue of the technological proliferation has been 'handled', and continues to be contained by the armed forces of many great nations working quietly together, the spiritual issues are something which each of us can help with.

On the spiritual side, we are encouraging everybody to concentrate on UNITY and to meditate or pray for humanity to successfully move through this upcoming period of crisis. If we go the wrong way we justify the J-Rod's history books, and eventually humanity will become fractured as a result, splitting off into the forerunners of the J-Rods and the Orions (so named for the final destination of each of these groups of humanity). Dan's friend, a J-Rod who came back from approx. 52,000 years in our future, had come back in time not only to try to obtain help for his people's illness, but to share a information with us so we could take the necessary steps to change our future for the better.

If you feel inspired to help, please visit the section in this website where you can download UNITY flyers. The 'Unity' campaign has seen hundreds of thousands of flyers all over the world put up in different languages, reminding people that now is the time to pray for peace and unity. Please feel free to download a copy in your language, and put it up in your city or town. It doesn't matter if it seems to be a small effort - every positive effort counts.16

I believe that the Majestic-12 know that there are things Dan learned from the J-Rod during that event in the Clean Sphere which need to be shared with the public, so that we can make it through this critical time in our history, and emerge into our future as a united humanity. I also know that we can't possibly reach everybody. But I am confident that our best efforts will get this information into the hearts and minds of those people who need it, who can use it, and who will help make a difference. This is what the words 'Tell The World' really mean.

That is why we are doing all of this, and coming forward now to tell people the truth about what Dan experienced and what he learned of the Extraterrestrial intelligences, first hand. This first DVD, plus the many hours of live and taped interviews Dan has provided to media, technically fulfill the orders. Dan having met the minimum requirements is now free to do as he chooses with the rest of his retirement. I, on the other hand have so much information and taped material left over (I only had so much room on the DVD) that I can clearly envision doing additional DVDs about aspects of Dan's experiences that I didn't have time to cover in the first DVD. I am also in possession of all Dan's diaries, covering over 20 years of his life, plus hundreds of thousands of images and videos from his research.

As many of you know, Dan's health is not good. After this almost year-long effort to fulfill his orders, he suffered another seizure, and he is still very ill with the aftermath. It caught us all by surprise, and forced us to put the brakes on the 'one-on-one' telephone chats Dan had started to do with interested people from the community. Hopefully those will be able to start again once he feels better, but everything will depend on Dan's health. One way or another, all of the promises that Dan and I have made about disclosing information to the public will be honored, and the charitable contributions as outlined by Dan, will be made.

One thing I do know, Dan is a fighter (watch this 8 minute Google video, recorded when Dan was not conscious he was on camera, and released with his subsequent permission). He has been through more hardship than any ten people I know put together, and he still keeps fighting. I think he should serve as an inspiration to everybody - never give up! Stay true to yourself, keep your honor intact, do what you know is right even if it's inconvenient, and keep pressing forward no matter what other people say.

  2. (this note provided by Marci McDowell) There is a part of Dan's history that goes back, and has a bearing on all of this. It was in the early 1970s, and Dan encountered a group of J-Rods in an abduction situation (see Project Camelot's first interview with Dan for full details). He remembered very little of the experience, but learned later in his life that this was a pivotal turning point for him.

    Due to what took place during that event, Dan found himself returned to the park from which he was taken, subtly changed. Over the next few years he developed a staggering ability in the area of biology, microscopy, and the sciences - so stunning that his mother arranged for Dan to be tutored by the (then) director of pathology at Long Beach Memorial Hospital, in histology and microbiology. Dan, still a young child, spent several years working on the weekends with Dr. Reynolds, and becoming highly skilled in microscopy - eventually being brought into the Los Angeles Microscopical Society as the youngest member they had ever had.

  4. S-4 is a particular area within Area 51, which in turn is an area within Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.

  5. Our sun with its solar system, on its long and slightly uneven orbit around the center of the galaxy, is gradually approaching a position where within a few years it will be exactly and symmetrically level with the plane of the galaxy itself. It is very close to this plane already, at the time of writing (2007).

    Many sources state that it is known within military and intelligence circles - as well as understood esoterically through channeled and other information - that as the solar system enters this band it will be heavily affected by energy emanating from the core of the galaxy which will cause effects on the ecosphere and the Earth's crust not experienced on the Earth for over 25,000 years. These effects are being felt already, and are due to become more pronounced.

    Some argue that this is currently causing an increase of solar activity and a consequent warming of every planet in the solar system, not just the Earth, and that a catastrophe unprecedented in our civilization is in danger of occurring. See this excellent research article for full details.

    See also this page for precautions the American military has been taking through the trillions of dollars spent in construction of over a hundred deep underground bases in which any surface calamity could be survived by a relatively small and carefully selected elite group of people.

  6. Project Aquarius was the name given to the study of the J-Rod and the information learned from this.

  7. Dan Burisch reports extensive contact with two groups of J-Rods, both races of future humans who have traveled back in time to our world. One group, called by Majestic the P45s (an abbreviation for Present + 45,000 years), come from 45,000 years in our future. Another group is called the P52s, and come from 52,000 years in our future.

    The P45s are also called by Majestic 'the rogues', and are self-serving in their agenda - which the P52s are not. The P45s are commonly reported in UFOlogy as 'the Grays', the group which has been carrying out most or all of the abductions. According to Dan, the P45s are intent on 'justifying their history' and WANT the catastrophe described in (5) above to occur, as this occurred in their history and was pivotal in creating them as a race. The purpose of the abductions, Dan explained in his recent Project Camelot interview, is a long-term longitudinal genetic drift study which is aimed solely at benefiting their species. The P52s are more altruistic and have returned to attempt to help our present time situation.

    There is also a third group, called by Majestic the P52 Orions. These are also known in UFO and contact reports as the 'Nordics', are much more human-looking, and are a very spiritual race. Dan has only encountered these in treaty negotiations, and has stated in his recent interview with Project Camelot that he admired them and would have liked to have spent more time with them.

    The differences in physiology occurred after the catastrophe - which in our timeframe has not yet happened - caused by one group (the P45 and P52 J-Rods) staying underground on Earth to survive in the post-apocalyptic world until eventually they migrated to Zeta Reticuli, while the other group (the P52 Orions) left Earth soon after the catastrophe to venture to the Moon, then Mars, then to other distant star systems which became their new home. Environmental and other factors created the marked difference in the two genomes after several tens of thousands of years had passed. The P45 Orions were in good shape, while the P45 and P52 J-Rods had degenerated substantially.

    According to Dan, it was the P52 Orions who met with Eisenhower in 1954, and who at that time misjudged the military's capacity to take responsibility for the technology they were given in that meeting. Following that, the P52 Orions re-evaluated the situation and insisted that treaty negotiations must begin. The P45 J-Rods were unaware of the existence of the Orion group until they encountered them in this timeframe. It is only in the context of the treaty negotiations, in which Dan played an important role, that the three groups (four, including humans from present time) all met.

  8. This DVD, entitled Tell the World, is available from Marci McDowell at marcia_mcdowell@yahoo.com.

  9. There appears to be a complex, interconnected tangle of timelines which have been created in attempts to 'fix' this situation. As Henry Deacon, who confirms Dan's testimony, explained to us personally, the essence of the timelines problem is that if one travels back in time to kill one's grandfather - the famous 'grandfather paradox' - one does not suddenly cease to exist in this timeframe. Instead, the paradox is avoided by another, parallel timeline being created at the point of the grandfather's death. There can be any number of such parallel timelines, and future timelines (created by future beings traveling back in time to make changes) exist only as potentials for us, and not as predetermined fixed realities. This is important metaphysically, as choice and free will are preserved at all times.

  10. The J-Rod told Dan his name was Chi'el'ah (pronounced Kee-ay-la).

  11. What is not described here by Marci are the several very serious beatings Dan received.
  12. The Doctrine of the Convergent Timeline Paradox is also known as the 'DCTP' (useful in Google searches).

  13. The Voynich Manuscript is a mysterious, lengthy illustrated document of some antiquity. It first surfaced in the Middle Ages, appears to be in code or written in an unknown language, and has never been fully deciphered.
  14. See this page on our site. In illustrations 1 and 2 one can make out Dan's detailed drawing of the 'stroller' in which the J-Rod Chi'el'ah was being transported; it can be seen in the bottom right corner of each image. This is interesting because this was not the purpose of the drawings originally; the stroller is not labeled and no attention has been given to it.

    The story of Dan pushing the stroller into the Stargate so that Chi'el'ah could return home to his future time (and falling partly into the gate himself) is told graphically in his interviews with Project Camelot.

  15. After the catastrophe (on their timeline, in their history), the J-Rods analyzed why this had happened. Their conclusion was that it was almost certainly the amplifying effect of the artificial Stargate and Looking Glass devices (as distinct from natural stargates, which are not a danger) which had precipitated the catastrophe.

    The mission of the P52 J-Rods and P52 Orions was to come back in time to advise us strongly to decommission these devices until after the danger period had passed - roughly 2005 to 2017, to provide a good margin of safety. According to Dan, this has occurred. See his recent interview with Project Camelot for more details. Dan states that according to Looking Glass data (the last data obtained before the devices were dismantled) the probability of the catastrophe being averted was 81%, with an 85% confidence in the accuracy of that calculation.

    UPDATE, January 2008:

    Dan completed his 'sabattical' in mid-December 2007. While this has never been explicitly stated, it is clear to us that he was "invited back in" by the new Majestic group to assist in some critical work that was taking place over a period of several months to (among other things) evaluate progress in the ongoing handling of the timeline problem.

    We should state here for the record that this is our own surmise, and that this has not been stated to us by Dan in those words. He is very constrained in what he can and can't reveal about his recent activities.

    He did, however, announce in his blog in December that we were now safely off Timeline 2 (on which the catastrophe occurred in the future humans' history) and were instead now on 'Variant 83 of Timeline 1'.


  16. In and among the complexity of this edifice of challenging information, this may be the single most important thing to grasp: that - see note (9) above - we have free will and full choice at all times. What will happen to us is what we agree will occur... consciously or unconsciously. This is a fundamental metaphysical truth.

    We have the gift to be able to choose the fate and welfare of the world and our civilization. A critical mass of agreement is necessary in order to choose what we wish to experience. If we do not want a catastrophe to occur, then this starts with your conscious intent, now.
