Over the past several years, through the publication and positive reviews of her Encyclopedia of Moon Mysteries and The Moon’s Galactic History, Constance Victoria Briggs has become a leading authority on the subject of visitations to Earth and the Moon by extraterrestrials.
There are two reasons for her ascendancy into this well-deserved, hard-earned position. First, Briggs does exhaustive amounts of research, structuring her books like PhD dissertations (the structural design of MGH and EGH is similar). Second, she remains a hopeful but very staunch skeptic. She is primarily a reporter. She presents the facts and lets the reader do with them what they will, without gloss. In this way, she is like Dr. Michael Salla and Paul Blake Nelson. Although she traverses the same landscapes as the Ancient Alien crowd (one of whom, David Childress, is her publisher), Briggs is the Joe Friday of the bunch: “Just the facts.” In this way, she is most like Rev. Michael Carter, a frequent guest on AA.
As I mentioned, Briggs uses a familiar structure for The Moon’s Galactic History. She begins broad, with a several-chapter overview raising provocative questions and teasing case studies she later shares in detail. This is not only like a PhD dissertation—an upside-down triangle of broad information becoming increasingly specific is also the standard for traditional journalism. As the chapters unfold, she tackles such subjects as “Hollow Inner Earth”; “Signs, Signals, Messages, and Clues”; “Stargates, Portals and Wormholes”; and “Extraterrestrials among Us.” These topics will immediately raise a cynic’s brow—but Briggs gives us plenty of cited data. As with past books, she offers half a dozen or more hypotheses or theories, each delineated by a subheading. The same academic structure applies when she takes us around the world to famous sites with ET connections, such as the Great Pyramid of Giza (she spends a good bit of ink on Egypt), Stonehenge, the Nazca Lines, and the Gate of the Sun in Bolivia. There is also a compelling section on anomalous artifacts, including the London Hammer, Drill Bit Relic, Coso Relic, and Eltanin Antenna (in Antarctica). She also discusses crop circles.
We go around the world again to look at underwater bases, which has become an increasingly prevalent topic in the so-called Disclosure movement.
The chapter on UFOs/UAPs takes us once more around the world, serving as a comprehensive primer for those just getting started on the topic and a quick reference guide for seasoned investigators.
A highlight of the book’s scholarship is the chapter “Stargates, Portals and Wormholes.” Not just the stuff of movies and TV, NASA has mapped these doorways to other dimensions for decades. There are rumors of stargates and portals in Antarctica, Turkey, Sedona (AZ), Sri Lanka, and at the bottom of Lake Michigan in the form as a 12,000-year-old Stonehenge-like structure 40 feet below the surface. There is at least one in Iraq. My research and interviews indicate that these portals connect to the djinn and ET tech/occult objects that account for why this area is so highly contested beyond the quest for oil.
As a fellow Trekkie, I love that Briggs repeatedly talks about Gene Roddenberry and Star Trek. As she has said in previous books, Roddenberry was in close contact with a psychic who channeled and otherwise communicated with ETs. Key to the philosophy that Roddenberry espoused through the United Federation of Planets is the Prime Directive. This requirement of noninterference could very well be the mechanism that keeps extraterrestrial species from making themselves known to humankind on a global scale.
Connected to Star Trek (but very real), there are several sections on advanced propulsion technology, including warp and interdimensional drives.
Contact, however, does not only occur in space. My guess is that the material in the book on ETs living and working among us, observing us, perhaps hybridizing with us, and even being the original inhabitants of Earth will be the most difficult for most readers to accept and absorb. Again, Briggs gives us an academic and thorough set of subsections listing all of the reasons that ETS truly are among us. These reasons are a mirror image of the USAF exploration and exopolitics operations reported by Donald Keyhoe in the 1950s. Briggs provides a provocative list of the fourteen ET races that are most often interacting with us, delivering data on each in a series of quick-reference mini-dossiers. There were several of which I was unaware.
Special mention must be made of a ten-ton mystery called the Black Knight Satellite/Eye in the Sky that Briggs covers toward the end of the book.
Although I do not use the word expert lightly, Briggs meets the criteria when it comes to ET contact through NASA’s Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions. Testimony from astronaut Gordon Cooper is a highlight. Briggs also includes several reports from the Russian space program. If quantity counts as much as quality, Briggs builds a strong case for the veracity of what many government gatekeepers have tried to reframe as conspiracy theories and outright lies.
After a brief section on UFO battles witnessed around the world going back to Rome and Carthage circa 200 BC, Earth’s Galactic History ends with a list of Galactic Hierarchies: The Galactic Federation, The Council of Nine, Ashtar Command, and the Alliance for Peace. These alliances, like the one in Star Trek, may be simply watching us, or perhaps helping us (shutting down nuclear warheads, etc.), or they may even be our celestial ancestors. Hundreds of mediums, channelers, abductees, and contactees have reported contact and shared at times book-length messages from them.
Constance Victoria Briggs, as always, gives us plenty to contemplate and abundant credible data with which to do it.
In the Age of AI, with chaos on Earth ramping up on numerous fronts (geopolitical, environmental, biological, technological), being informed and able to discern solid scholarship from click-bait, disinformation, and delusion is a critical skill. A week ago, former AARO head Sean Kirkpatrick penned an article for Scientific American. Part of his mission to convince the public that there are no ETs is that the same small group has been pushing the government cover-up narrative for decades. On that point, he and I agree. The fact is, however, people like him in the military-industrial complex created and promulgate this situation. There are many credible researchers out there. They just do not get the airtime the sellouts, shills, and operatives do.
Thankfully, we have a growing library available from this gifted researcher to counter both the nothing to see and thin on evidence, big on conspiracies dyad.
I look forward to what Constance Victoria Briggs gives us next.
