The Reeves Papers (3)

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:25 pm

We continue with John’s article, “The Reeves Papers: A Modern Rosetta Stone?” As I said before, I don’t know if this was published. I don’t know what the red numerals indicate; I assume they refer to illustrations, but they don’t correspond to the supplementary pages of drawings.

John links the symbols reported by UFO witnesses to the “Unified Symbolism for World Understanding in Science” developed by C. K. Bliss and Oliver L. Reiser in the early 1950s. Here are the next two pages, followed by the relevant illustrations. The Socorro insignia was reported by Lonnie Zamorra in two sightings in Socorro, NM in 1964. There’s more to come!




  1. There has been lots of controversy about whether the symbol in John’s article was, in fact, the actual symbol shown on the Socorro object. There appears to be at least a chance that it was substituted in publications (so future hoaxes could be identified?). A nice summary of the arguments can be found at

  3. I only mention this in passing. In the world of intelligence/counter intelligence it has been reported that altered data, i.e. statements, photos, names, etc, are made “available” to trace the source of information. Back in that day there was concern by the government that these kind of stories could be used for “subversive” purposes. I’ve read Michael Swords book (forgotten the title but it dealt with the offical government reaction to UFO reports) and it seems that at higher levels the reports were not necessarily disputed but the concern seemed to be that that UFO information could be misused by bad actors for nefarious purposes. This is a great find and the link above was very helpful. Thanks!

  4. That’s a good point. John also kept some details in reports unpublished, to see if they appeared in other reports. One one occasion, he mounted a trivial hoax to track where it ended up.

  5. […] at the many-sided, brilliant, and we now find troubled, figure and the movement she promoted. With The Reeves Papers (2) we continue John Keel’s perhaps unpublished article on “two sheets of supposedly alien […]
