UFO cult, alien possession, Russian spies, with Jesus, at Loch Ness, via telepathy

This story is jam-packed with woo and ridiculousness. I had to read it slowly to pick it all up!

SPECIAL branch operatives tailed a UFO cult leader who said he was in telepathic contact with aliens, it emerged today.

Source: REVEALED: Special Branch tailed UFO cult leader for FIVE YEARS over fears he was communist.

The bizarre high-level decision saw Scotland Yard’s finest infiltrating rallies and meetings of George King’s secretive ‘space society’ amid fears it was a front for Russian spies.

They launched a five-year surveillance operation into his activities, which was revealed for the first time today after Scotland Yard unsealed top secret documents.

The Aetherius Society was founded by King in 1955 as a “religious” org following gods from outer space. Yep, it’s kooky. It’s chock full of a dozen woo woo ideas mashed up together –  millenarian, New Age, UFOs, telepathy, contacts with extraterrestrial intelligences (“Cosmic Masters”), Theosophy, yoga, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, universal karma, and religious healing. I’m sure I’m missing some aspects too.

Oh wait… Jesus was an alien and the Star of Bethlehem a spaceship with a secret base on the banks of Loch Ness. Wow!!! Wouldn’t this make an awesome movie!

Rational Wiki says they have less than 650 members as of the 90s.

But, it looks like truth IS stranger than fiction. The police thought the org was a cover for a Communist plot in Britain. The files open to the public reveal that the society was probed by secret investigators from Scotland Yard after King was suspected of ties to Moscow. It turns out ALIENS appealed to King in order to stop nuclear experimentation, not Russians. Makes perfect sense! They are just out to help us!

Investigations found no evidence King was involved in spreading Soviet propaganda. Maybe he really believed this stuff — an L. Ron Hubbard/Claude Vorilhon wannabe or just, umm, eccentric.

    Wow, that’s wild!

    Have to say, I’ve never met a Communist who believed in any woo stuff, not an American Communist anyway. In this case they were British but it still seems like quite a stretch. Marx, Lenin, Stalin…nowhere did any of them write about aliens or the Loch Ness monster lol.

    The USG followed around contactees in the early days of UFO claims, especially guys like Adamski who had backgrounds in “esoteric” thought. Nick Redfern’s book Contactees has some entertaining accounts, based largely on government files. (Spoiler: the FBI wasted your grandparents’ tax dollars following these charlatans around.)

    King predates Vorilhon.

    Three Men Seeking Monsters Redfern?

    Though you only see scattered survivors these days like the Unarians (i.e. “Spaceship Ruthie’s Cult”) and the Bo-Peepers/Heaven’s Gate (until Hale-Bopp), Nifty Fifties Saucer Cults were one Wild and WEIRD scene. I first got introduced to UFOlogy by the Adamskyites, back when I was young enough most of my bingo-balls were still floating around in the draw tank and believed every word. And I used to know a guy whose mother was secretary for the Van Tasselites (mostly to people-watch all the Weird people there). Back before the Grimdark and Crapsack, when the Nuts & Bolts UFOlogists were feuding head-to-head with the Contactee Cults and the only Conspiracy Theory in the mix was The Air Force Suppressing The Evidence.
