I don't know Grant's personal views on how it might work, but he
does bring it up with regards to the Wilbert Smith Nov. 21, 1950
memo. Besides saying the saucers are real, classified higher
than the H-bomb, and a small group under Dr. Vannevar Bush were
looking into their "modus operandi", also brings up the subject
"mental phenomena" being investigated. Smith would also
sometimes bring up being in mental contact with the "boys

Another "mental case" that Grant has looked into was that of
Mrs. Francis Swan, a 1950s contactee, who said she was in mental
contact with an alien named AFFA. I helped Grant dig up some
obscure information on this, such as the 1954 orbiting satellite
story that broke in the news in August 1954.

But earlier that year, Mrs. Swan, through automatic writing
sessions, had reported that AFFA was in one of two spacecraft
orbiting the earth. Donald Keyhoe was reporting this back in May
1954, that his sources (not Mrs. Swan) were reporting two large
satellites orbiting earth. (This was over 3 years before the
Soviets put up the first satellite.) Earlier in the year,
astronomer Clyde Tombaugh was reported looking for such
satellites with his telescopes, under contract with the Army.

Rear Admiral Herbert Knowles and his wife, who lived near Swan
and knew her, took her claims very seriously, with Knowles then
funneling Swan's claims up through intelligence channels. The
report finally ending up on Eisenhower's desk in June. Then the
story broke in August about two satellites orbiting earth and
that Tombaugh and fellow astronomer Dr. Lincoln La Paz had found
them. Both denied the story, but the New York Times cited a
source close to the project who said it was indeed true, but \
it had nothing to do with flying saucers. These were, allegedly,
"natural satellites".

(Both Tombaugh and La Paz had publicly-admitted-to UFO
sightings, La Paz known to have been contracted by the military
to investigate the green fireballs that started up in late 1948
and has also been linked through several witnesses to the
Roswell case. One of La Paz's sightings, a disc, was only two
days after the Roswell story broke and only about 70 miles from
Roswell. This sighting he kept to himself for many years, unlike
his green fireball sighting. It was used in the 1952 LIFE
magazine article on UFOs, but La Paz was anonymous.)

I have some of the satellite story on my website (but not the
Mrs. Swan story):




The Swan story gets even more bizarre when a CIA officer asked
AFFA through Swan for proof, and AFFA said to go look outside,
and depending on which witness is asked, they either did or did
not see a flying saucer appear. But this incident about mental
communication also appears in a redacted document. Those may be
the only two such documents in the public domain that bring up
the subject in relation to UFOs. (Maybe someone knows of more.)
More on the weird Swan/AFFA/CIA story:


Grant, in one public lecture I attended, also mentioned his own
experiences with regards to literally chasing on foot small
probes out in the field and being under the impression that his
mind was being read on occasion (if I remember correctly, which
maybe I'm not, so don't quote me here). This was back in 1975-76
in Manitoba during a huge UFO wave there when the UFOs hung
around for months. Grant now thinks this may be related to the
U.S. nuclear missile UFO incursions taking place at the same
time just over the border with Canada. The UFOs would "cool
their heels" over in friendlier Canada, maybe, when they weren't
harassing the missile sites.

I don't think Grant believes in magic. I suspect he either
believes this is a natural ability and/or some technology.
