The ufo-contacts of the french "Rael" in the early 70ths

Extract of FOREWORD by Anthony Grey
international best-selling novelist, journalist and broadcaster
"The author of these unique writings was born Claude Vorilhon in
France in September 1946. He changed his name to Rael, which
means 'messenger' in Hebrew, after meeting a human being from
another planet when a small spacecraft landed in a remote volcanic
region of south central France in December 1973. During several
meetings on successive days, its human occupant verbally dictated to
him most of the first book of this volume, saying it was 'a message to
be addressed to all humanity'. He told Rael that all the great prophets
of the major religions throughout our history had been given
information appropriate to the educational level of their times in
precisely this way and invited Rael to take on the mission of making
what he called 'our final message' known worldwide. Rael accepted
the task and rapidly wrote and published the first book himself in
French under the disarmingly simple titleThe Book Which Tells the
Nearly two years later, in October 1975, a second encounter
occurred in woodland near Brantome in the Perigord region of
France, and this time Rael was invited aboard the advanced spacecraft
and taken on an astonishing revelatory journey. Rael describes this
fully in the second section of the book entitled Extra-Terrestrials Took
Me to Their Planet, which he also originally published as a separate
volume in French in late 1975.
An international journalist such as I have been is of course
accustomed to assessing the reliability or otherwise of those he quotes
for information, even when sometimes concealing his confidant's
identity behind a stock phrase like 'a usually well-informed source' or
'a usually reliable source'. In this regard, my estimation of Rael is that
he is an eminently reliable witness to what he has experienced,
fantastic though it often may seem. I think that he is indeed 'a
uniquelywell informed and reliable source' and, after hearing him
speak in public lectures over a period of thirteen years and after
reviewing my own and other recorded broadcast interviews with him,
it is my impression that perhaps even now he is saying less than
everything he learned during those extraordinary, unsought meetings
in the mid-1970s on this planet and beyond. More importantly
perhaps, the profound logic and rationality of what he was told by his
informants appear unassailable to me.
I interviewed Rael twice in preparing an investigative radio
documentary series for the BBC World Service entitled 'UFOs - Fact,
Fiction or Fantasy?' I also interviewed sane, responsible Frenchmen
who met and decided to support him during the period immediately
following his two extraordinary encounters in the 1970s.
For more than thirty years now, Rael himself has, with gentle and
patient good humour, explained his story again and again, certainly
thousands of times to radio, television and print journalists in most
of the countries of the world. When mocked or derided as he has
often been in live or recorded studio interviews at which I have been
present as his English language commercial publisher and a supporter
of his extraordinary mission, he has always conducted himself with
the same quiet courtesy and unshakable confidence. Never once have
I seen him lose the calm demeanor of a man who knows without any
shadow of doubt that he is telling the truth.
Anthony Grey is a former foreign correspondent with Reuters in Eastern Europe and China
– where he was held hostage for two years during the Cultural Revolution -- and the author
of the international best-selling historical novels, Saigon, Peking and Tokyo Bay.
extract from chapter
Ever since I was nine years old I have had but one passion - motor
racing. I founded a specialist motor sport magazine in 1970,
simply to be able to live in the environment of a sport where man is
constantly trying to surpass himself while striving to surpass others.
Since my early childhood I had dreamed of one day being a racingcar
driver, following in the footsteps of someone as famous as Fangio.
Thanks to contacts made through the magazine I founded, I was
given the opportunity to race and about ten trophies now adorn my
apartment as a result of those races.
On the 13th of December 1973, however, I went to a volcano
overlooking Clermont-Ferrand in central southern France. I went
more to get a breath of fresh air than to take a drive in my car. My
legs were itching after a full year following the races from circuit to
circuit, almost always living on four wheels, so to speak.
The air was cool at the time, and the sky rather gray with a
background mist. I walked and jogged a little and left the path where
my car was parked, aiming to reach the center of the crater called
Puy-de-Lassolas where I often went for picnics with my family in the
What a superb and breathtaking place it was! To think that
thousands of years ago, right where my feet were standing, lava had
spurted out at incredibly high temperatures. Decorative volcanic
‘bombs’ can still be found among the debris. The stunted vegetation
resembled that of Province in France but without sunshine.
I was just about to leave and looked for the last time towards the
top of the circular mountain, which was formed by an accumulation
of volcanic slag. It reminded me how many times I had slid down
those steep slopes, as if I was on skis. Suddenly in the fog, I saw a red
light flashing; then a sort of helicopter was descending towards me. A
helicopter, however, makes a noise but at that moment, I could hear
absolutely nothing, not even the slightest whistle. A balloon maybe?
Site of Rael’s first encounter: Puy de Lassolas, near
Clermont-Ferrand, December 13th, 1973.
By now, the object was about twenty meters above the ground, and I
could see it had a somewhat flattened shape.
It was a flying saucer.
I had always believed in their existence, but I had never dreamed I
would actually see one. It measured some seven meters in diameter,
about 2.5 meters in height, was flat underneath and cone-shaped. On
its underside, a very bright red light flashed, while at the top an
intermittent white light reminded me of a camera flash cube. This
white light was so intense, that I could not look at it without
The object continued to descend, without the slightest noise until
it stopped and hovered motionless about two meters above the
ground. I was petrified and remained absolutely still. I was not afraid,
but rather filled with joy to be living through such a great moment.
I bitterly regretted not having brought my camera with me.
Then the incredible happened. A trap door opened beneath the
machine and a kind of stairway unfolded to the ground. I realized
that some living being was about to appear, and I wondered what it
was going to look like.
First two feet appeared then two legs, which reassured me a little,
since apparently I was about to meet a man. In the event, what at first
I took to be a child came down the stairway and walked straight
I could see then this was certainly no child even though the figure
was only about four feet (1.2 meters) tall. His eyes were slightly
almond shaped, his hair was black and long, and he had a small black
beard. I still had not moved, and he stopped about ten meters away
He wore some sort of green one-piece suit, which covered his entire
body, and although his head seemed to be exposed, I could see
around it a strange sort of halo. It was not really a halo but the air
about his face shone slightly and shimmered. It looked like an
invisible shield, like a bubble, so fine that you could barely see it. His
skin was white with a slightly greenish tinge, a bit like someone with
He smiled faintly, and I thought it best to return his smile. I felt
rather ill at ease, so I smiled and bowed my head slightly in greeting.
He answered with the same gesture. Thinking that I had to find out
if he could hear me, I asked: ‘Where do you come from?’
He answered in a strong, articulate voice that was slightly nasal:
‘From very far away.’
‘Do you speak French?’ I enquired.
‘I speak all the languages of the Earth.’
‘Do you come from another planet?’
‘Yes,’ he replied.
As he spoke, he moved closer and stopped about two meters from
‘Is this the first time you have visited the Earth?’
‘Have you been here often?’
‘Very often - to say the least.’
‘Why did you come here?’
‘Today, to talk to you.’
‘Yes, to you, Claude Vorilhon, editor of a small motor sport
magazine, married and father of two children.’
‘How do you know all that?’
‘We have been watching you for a long time.’
‘This is precisely what I want to tell you. Why did you come here
on this cold winter morning?’
‘I don’t know... I felt like walking in the fresh air...’
‘Do you come here often?’
‘In the summer yes, but almost never in this season.’
‘So why did you come today? Had you planned this walk for a long
‘No. I don’t really know. When I woke up this morning I suddenly had
an urge to come here.’
‘You came because I wanted to see you. Do you believe in
‘Yes, of course, it’s something I’ve always been interested in - as well as
the subject of "flying saucers". But I never thought I’d see one myself.’
‘Well, I used telepathy to get you to come here because I have
many things to tell you. Have you read the Bible?’
‘Yes, but why do you ask?’
‘Have you been reading it for a long time?’
‘No, as a matter of fact, I bought it only a few days ago.’
‘I really don’t know. Suddenly I had an urge to read it...’
‘Again I used telepathy to make you decide to buy it. I have chosen
you for a very difficult mission, and I have many things to tell you.
So come into my craft where we can talk more comfortably.’
I followed him, climbing up the small staircase beneath the
machine, which, on closer inspection, looked more like a flattened
bell with a full and bulging underside. Inside it, two seats faced one
another, and the temperature was mild even though the door was still
There was no lamp, but natural light emanated from everywhere.
There were no instruments like those you find in an aircraft cockpit.
The floor was made of a sparkling alloy, which was slightly bluish.
The chairs were colorless and translucent, but very comfortable and
made from one piece of material. I sat on the larger one that was set
closer to the floor, so that the face of the little man sitting in front of
me was at the same level as mine.
He touched a spot on the wall, and the whole machine became
transparent except for its top and bottom. It was like being in the
open air, but the temperature was mild. He invited me to take off my
coat, which I did, and then he started to speak.
‘You regret not having brought your camera so that you could have
talked about our meeting to the whole world - with proof in your
‘Yes, of course...’
‘Listen to me carefully. You will tell human beings about this
meeting, but you will tell them the truth about what they are, and
about what we are. Judging from their reactions we will know if we
can show ourselves freely and officially. Wait until you know
everything before you start speaking publicly. Then you will be able
to defend yourself properly against those people who will not believe
you and you will be able to bring them incontestable proof. You will
write down everything I tell you and publish the writings as a book.’
‘But why did you choose me?’
‘For many reasons. First of all, we needed someone in a country
where new ideas are welcomed and where it is possible to talk about
such ideas openly. Democracy was born in France, and this country
has a reputation the world over for being the country of freedom.
Also we needed someone who is intelligent and quite open to
everything. Above all we needed someone who is a free thinker
without being anti-religious. Because you were born of a Jewish
father and a Catholic mother, we consider you to be an ideal link
between two very important peoples in the history of the world.
Besides, your activities do not in any way predispose you to making
incredible revelations, and this will make your words all the more
credible. Since you are not a scientist, you will not complicate things
and will explain them simply. Not being a literary man, you won’t
compose elaborate sentences, which are difficult to read for a great
many people. Finally, we decided to choose someone who was born
after the first atomic explosion in 1945, and you were born in 1946.
We have in fact been following you since your birth, and even before.
This is why we have chosen you. Do you have any other questions?’
‘Where do you come from?’
‘From a distant planet about which I will tell you nothing for fear
that men of the Earth might be unwise enough to disturb our peace.’
‘Is your planet very far away?’
‘Very far. When I tell you the distance you will understand that it
is impossible to reach it with your present level of scientific and
‘What are you called?’
‘We are people like you, and we live on a planet similar to Earth.’
‘How long does it take you to come here?’
‘As long as it takes to think about it.’
‘Why do you come to Earth?’
‘To monitor and watch over the development of humanity.
Human beings on Earth are the future, we are the past.’
‘Are there many people on your planet?’
‘There are more people than on yours.’
‘I would like to visit your planet. Can I?’
‘No. First of all you couldn’t live there because the atmosphere is
different from yours, and you have not been trained for such a
‘But why meet here?’
‘Because the crater of a volcano is an ideal place, away from
irksome people. I shall leave you now. Come back tomorrow at the
same time with the Bible and something to take notes with. Do not
bring any metallic object and speak to no one of our conversation,
otherwise we will never meet again.’
He handed me my coat, let me climb down the ladder and waved
his hand. The ladder folded up and the door closed without a sound.
Still without making the slightest murmur or any whistling sound,
the craft rose gently to a height of about 400 meters, then
disappeared into the mist.
The following day I was at the meeting place again as arranged
with a notebook, a pen and the Bible. The flying machine
reappeared on time, and I found myself face to face once more with
the little man who invited me to enter the machine and sit in the
same comfortable chair.
I had spoken to nobody about all this, not even to those closest to
me, and he was happy to learn that I had been discreet. He suggested
I take notes, and then he started to speak:
‘A very long time ago on our distant planet, we had reached a level
of technical and scientific knowledge, comparable to that which you
will soon reach. Our scientists had started to create primitive,
embryonic forms of life, namely living cells in test tubes. Everyone
was thrilled by this.’
The scientists perfected their techniques and began creating bizarre
little animals but the government, under pressure from public
opinion, ordered the scientists to stop their experiments for fear they
would create monsters, which would become dangerous to society. In
fact one of these animals had broken loose and killed several people.
Since at that time, interplanetary and intergalactic explorations
had also made progress, the scientists decided to set out for a distant
planet where they could find most of the necessary conditions to
pursue their experiments. They chose Earth where you live. Now I
would like you to refer to the Bible where you will find traces of the
truth about your past. These traces, of course, have been somewhat
distorted by successive transcribers who could not conceive of such
high technology and could therefore only explain what was described
as being a mystical and supernatural force.
Only the parts of the Bible that I will translate are important.
Other parts are merely poetic babblings of which I will say nothing.
I am sure you can appreciate that, thanks to the law, which said that
the Bible had always to be re-copied without changing even the
smallest detail, the deepest meaning has remained intact throughout
the ages, even if the text has been larded with mystical and futile
So let us start with the first chapter of the Book of Genesis:
In the beginning Elohim, created the heaven and the earth.
Genesis 1: 1.
Elohim, translated without justification in some Bibles by the word
Godmeans in Hebrew "those who came from the sky", and
furthermore the word is a plural. It means that the scientists from our
world searched for a planet that was suitable to carry out their
projects. They "created", or in reality discovered the Earth, and
realized it contained all the necessary elements for the creation of
artificial life, even if its atmosphere was not quite the same as our
And the Spirit of Elohim moved upon the face of the waters.
Genesis 1: 2.
This means the scientists made reconnaissance flights, and what
you might call artificial satellites were placed around the Earth to
study its constitution and atmosphere. The Earth was, at that time,
completely covered with water and thick mist.
And the books first chapters goes on telling on how much of the old testament/Genesis is a
Long story of contact to those "ufo-people" from above.
For ex. In theBook of Joshua, Chapter 3, Verses 15-16, we read about the
crossing of the Jordan:
And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan... the waters
which came down from above stood and rose up upon an heap
very far from the city... and those that came down toward the sea
of the plain, even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the
people passed over right against Jericho.
Thus the creators helped the "chosen people" cross without getting
their feet wet, just as they had done in their escape from the
Egyptians by using the same water repulsion ray.’

The Flying Saucers of Ezekiel
‘It is in the Book of Ezekiel, that we find the most interesting
description of one of our flying machines:
I looked, and, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, a
great cloud, with flashing lightning, and a brightness round about
it, and out of the midst of it as it were glowing metal, out of the
midst of the fire. Out of the midst of it came the likeness of four
living creatures. This was their appearance: they had the likeness
of a man. Everyone had four faces, and everyone of them had four
wings. Their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was
like the sole of a calf's foot; and they sparkled like burnished
brass. They had the hands of a man under their wings on their
four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings [thus]:
their wings were joined one to another; they didn't turn when
they went; they went everyone straight forward.
As for the likeness of their faces, they had the face of a man; and
they four had the face of a lion on the right side; and they four
had the face of an ox on the left side; they four had also the face
of an eagle. Their faces and their wings were separate above; two
[wings] of everyone were joined one to another, and two covered
their bodies. They went everyone straight forward: where the
spirit was to go, they went; they didn't turn when they went. As
for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like
burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches: [the fire]
went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was
bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning. The living
creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of
Now as I saw the living creatures, behold, one wheel on the eretz
beside the living creatures, for each of the four faces of it.
The appearance of the wheels and their work was like a bareket:
and they four had one likeness; and their appearance and their
work was as it were a wheel within a wheel. When they went, they
went in their four directions: they didn't turn when they went. As
for their rims, they were high and dreadful; and they four had
their rims full of eyes round about. When the living creatures
went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures
were lifted up from the eretz, the wheels were lifted up. Wherever
the spirit was to go, they went; there was the spirit to go: and the
wheels were lifted up beside them; for the spirit of the living
creature was in the wheels. When those went, these went; and
when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up
from the eretz, the wheels were lifted up beside them: for the
spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.
Over the head of the living creature there was the likeness of an
expanse, like the awesome crystal to look on, stretched forth over
their heads above. Under the expanse were their wings straight,
the one toward the other: everyone had two which covered on
this side, and every one had two which covered on that side, their
bodies. When they went, I heard the noise of their wings like the
noise of great waters, like the voice of Shaddai, a noise of tumult
like the noise of a host: when they stood, they let down their
wings. There was a voice above the expanse that was over their
heads: when they stood, they let down their wings. Above the
expanse that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as
the appearance of a sappir stone; and on the likeness of the throne
was a likeness as the appearance of a man on it above.11
Ezekiel 1: 4-26.
There you have a description, which could not be more precise, of
the creators who had come out of their flying machines. The "stormy
wind" is the trace of smoke or vapor trail that present-day planes leave
behind them at high altitudes. Then the machine appeared with its
blinking light, the "flashing lightning" and "glowing metal". Later,
four creators appear wearing antigravity suits with small directional
jet engines attached. These are described as the "wings" on their metal
suits and "their feet... sparkled like burnished brass". You have surely
noticed how shiny the suits of your astronauts are.
As for the "flying saucers" or "wheels", their appearance and their
operation were not at all badly described considering it is a primitive
person who is speaking. "as it were a wheel within a wheel...they
didn't turn when they went".
In the center of the flying saucer, very similar to the one in which
we are now sitting, was the habitable section - the rim. "they four had
their rims full of eyes round about". In the same way that our
clothing has evolved and we no longer wear those cumbersome space
suits, our vessels then had portholes - the "eyes" around the rims -
because we had not then discovered how to see through metallic walls
by modifying their atomic structure at will.
The flying saucers stayed near the creators ready to help them if the
need arose, since they were loading supplies and carrying out routine
maintenance on the large intergalactic vessel above them. Other
creators inside the vessels were directing them. "...for the spirit of the
living creature was in the wheels". This is quite clear.
The suit described with its four portholes was similar to your first
diving suits. "Everyone had four faces... they didn't turn when they
The smaller saucers were something like your own LEMs - lunar
excursion modules - small, short range vehicles used for exploratory
missions. Above them the larger interplanetary vessel waited.
Above the expanse that was over their heads was the likeness of a
throne, as the appearance of a sappir stone; and on the likeness of
the throne was a likeness as the appearance of a man on it above.
Ezekiel 1: 26.
The latter individual on the large vessel was supervising and
coordinating the work of the creators.
Frightened by all this, Ezekiel fell flat on his face before these
things, which were so mysterious that they had to have come from no
one other than "God". But one of the creators said to him:
Son of man, stand on your feet, and I will speak with you... hear
what I tell you... and eat that which I give you.
Ezekiel 2: 1 and 7-8.
This is an image, like the eating from the tree of science of good
and evil. It was intellectual food that he was given. In this case, it was
There was a hand stretched out to me; and behold, a scroll of a
book was in it... there was writing on the inside and on the
outside.12 Ezekiel 2: 9-10.
There was writing on both sides, a very surprising thing at that
time when usually only one side of parchment was written on.
Then the scroll is "eaten". This means that Ezekiel absorbed its
meaning. What he learned is what you are learning now about
humanity’s origins. It was so exciting and comforting that he said:
Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.
Ezekiel 3: 3.
Then Ezekiel is transported in the creators’ vessel to the place
where he was to spread the news:
Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a
Ezekiel 3: 12.
Further on, the prophet is transported once again in a flying
...and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven,
and brought me in the visions of Elohim to Jerusalem.
Ezekiel 8: 3.
Ezekiel noticed afterwards that beneath their "wings" the
cherubims had hands like humans:
extract from page 90:
Mankind: A Disease of the Universe
‘There, now you know the truth. You must write it down and make
it known throughout the world. If people on Earth want us to give
them the benefit of our experience and help them gain 25,000 years
of scientific knowledge, they have to show us that they want to meet
us, and above all demonstrate that they deserve it, and that all this can
be done without any danger to us.
If we give our knowledge to humanity, we have to be sure they will
make good use of it. Our observations in recent years have not shown
that wisdom rules the Earth. Certainly there has been progress, but
some people still die of hunger, and a warlike spirit still exists
throughout the world. We know that our arrival could improve many
things and unite nations, but we have to feel that people really want
to see us, and that they are truly starting to unify.
We also have to feel that they really want to see us arrive, knowing
fully who we are and understanding the true meaning of our arrival.
Several times human warplanes have tried to chase our crafts,
taking us for enemies.
You must tell them who we are, so that we can show ourselves
without any risk of either getting hurt or killed - which is not the case
at present - or of creating a dangerous and murderous panic.
Some researchers want to contact us by radio, but we do not
respond because in this way they could locate our planet. On the
other hand, transmission times would be too long, and our
broadcasting system uses waves that your technology cannot pick up
because you have not yet discovered them. They are seven times faster
than radio waves, and we are experimenting with new waves that are
one and a half times faster than that.
Progress continues, and our own research continues for the
purpose of understanding and relating to the large being of whom we
are a part, and on whose atoms we are parasites. These atoms are the
planets and the stars.
In fact, we have been able to discover that intelligent living beings
in the infinitely small live on particles that are planets and suns to
them. They ask the same questions as ourselves.
Humanity is a disease inside this gigantic being, and the planets
and stars are its atoms. Also this same gigantic being is in its turn a
parasite on other greater atoms. In both directions, it is infinite. But
the important thing is to make sure that the disease, which is
humanity, continues to exist and never dies.
We did not know when we were creating you that we were
accomplishing a secondary mission "written" into us, thus repeating
what had been done for us.
From what we created and how it has developed, we have
discovered our own origins. For we were also created by other people
who have since disappeared. Their world has quite certainly
disintegrated, but thanks to them, we were able to continue in their
steps and create you.
We may disappear one day, but by then you will have replaced us
and taken over our roles. So you are the link in the precious chain of
human continuity. Other worlds exist, and humanity is certainly
developing in other parts of the universe.
But in this region of the universe, our world is the only one to have
made new creations. This is important because, from each world,
innumerable children can be brought forth who are precious for
preserving continuity. This allows us to hope that one day humanity
will no longer be in danger of disappearing completely.
But we are not sure that humankind can ever stabilize itself in
abundance. The chain has always continued, but we must not upset
the equilibrium of the immense body in which we are a parasite
because, by developing too much, we could trigger a catastrophe,
which at best might bring about a recession and at worst cause
In a healthy body, a few germs can live without danger, but if they
develop too much, they cause a disease, which troubles the organism.
Then the organism reacts to destroy the germs responsible, either
naturally or with the help of medication. The important thing,
apparently, is to create enough worlds so that humanity does not
extinguish itself, but above all else, to make sure that the equilibrium
is not broken by concentrating our efforts anew on seeking to make
those who exist happier.
It is in this area that we can help you tremendously.’
Evolution: A Myth
‘I make a parenthesis here, because you must dispel from your minds
all uncertainty about evolution. Your scientists who have elaborated
theories of evolution are not completely wrong in saying that
humanity is descended from the monkey, and the monkey from the
fish, and so on. In reality, the first living organism created on Earth
was unicellular, which then gave rise to more complex life forms.
But this did not happen by chance! When we came to Earth to
create life, we started by making very simple creations and then
improved our techniques of environmental adaptation. This enabled
us to make in turn fish, amphibians, mammals, birds, primates and
finally man himself, who is just an improved model of the monkey to
which we added what makes us essentially human.
In this way, we made human beings in our image, as it is written
in the Bible inGenesis. You could have realized for yourselves that
there is little chance of a series of accidents producing such a large
variety of life forms - the colors of birds and their elaborate mating
rituals, or the shape of certain antelope horns.
What natural need could lead antelopes or wild goats to develop
curled horns? Or birds to have blue or red feathers? And what about
All that is the work of our artists. Do not forget the artists when
you yourselves create life. Imagine a world without them - no music,
films, paintings or sculptures... Life would be very boring, and
animals very ugly if their bodies corresponded only to their needs and
Evolution of the various forms of life on Earth is really the
evolution of techniques of creation and the increased sophistication
of the creators’ work. This eventually led them to create people
similar to themselves. You can find the skulls of prehistoric men who
were the first human prototypes.
These were replaced each time by others more evolved. This
continued right up to your present form, which is the exact replica of
your creators who were afraid to create anything highly superior to
themselves, although some were tempted to do so.
If we could be sure that human beings would never turn against
their creators to dominate or destroy them - as has happened between
the different human races created successively on Earth - but instead
would love them as parents, the temptation would be great to create
an improved humankind.
This is possible but at what enormous risk! In fact, some creators
worry that the people of the Earth may be slightly superior to their
fathers. "Satan" is one of those who has always thought, and still does,
that the people of the Earth are a danger to our planet because they
are a little too intelligent. But the majority among us thinks that you
will prove to us that you love us, and that you will never try to destroy
us. That is the least we expect before coming to help you.
It is even possible that at each creation of humankind by
humankind, a small improvement is achieved, a true evolution of the
human race, which is gradual, so that the creators do not feel
threatened when faced with their creations.
This makes it possible to speed up progress. Although we do not
think that at present we can give you our scientific heritage, we do
feel it is safe to give you our political and humanitarian knowledge.
This will not threaten your planet, but will allow you to be happier
on Earth. Thanks to this happiness, you will progress faster, and that
could also help you to show us more speedily that you deserve our
help and our inheritance in striving to achieve an intergalactic level
Otherwise, if humanity cannot calm its aggressiveness, if peace
does not become your only goal, and you allow people to promote
war, produce arms, test nuclear weapons, and maintain armies just to
seize or retain power, then we will stop such people from becoming a
danger to us, and there would be another Sodom and Gomorrah.
How could we not fear people from Earth when they attack their
own, we who are from another world and slightly different?
You, Claude Vorilhon, you will spread the truth under your
present name, which you will replace progressively with RAEL, which
means literally "light of God" and if we translate it more accurately,
"light of the Elohim" or "Ambassador of the Elohim", because you
will be our ambassador on Earth, and we will come only officially to
your Embassy. RAEL can be simply translated as "messenger".
And it is through telepathy that we made you name your son
Ramuel, which means "the son of the one who brings light", because
he is truly the son of our messenger, of our ambassador.’
And following that pronouncement, he left, just as he had done on
So extract from page 97
‘Second point: Your world is paralyzed by profit, and Communism
fails to provide a carrot big enough to motivate people and encourage
them to make progress.
You are all born equal; this is also written in the Bible. Your
governments should ensure that people are born with approximately
the same level of financial means. It is unacceptable that children of
low intelligence should live in luxury thanks to the fortunes amassed
by their fathers, while geniuses die of hunger and do any menial
chore just to eat.
This way they forsake occupations where they could have made
discoveries benefiting the whole of humanity. To avoid this, property
ownership must be abolished without establishing Communism.
This world is not yours - that also is written in the Bible. You are
only tenants. Thus all goods should be rented for forty-nine years.
This will eliminate the injustice of inheritance. Your true inheritance,
and that of your children, is the entire world, if you knew how to
organize yourselves to make it pleasant. This political orientation of
humanity is not Communism; its preoccupation is the future of
humanity. If you want to give it a name, call it "Humanitarianism".
Take for example a man who has finished his studies at the age of
twenty-one and wants to work. He chooses his profession and earns
a salary. If he wants to find a place to live while his parents are still
alive, he "buys" a house - but of course, in reality, he is renting a
house or apartment for forty-nine years from the State which
If the value of the house is estimated at 100,000 francs, he can pay
that amount divided into monthly installments for forty-nine years.
At the age of seventy (twenty-one plus forty-nine), he will have paid
for his house and can live there until his death, without ever paying
After his death, the house will go back to the State, which must
then allow his children, if there are any, to benefit from it freely.
Supposing there is one child, then this child can live freely all his life
in his father’s house. At his death, his child in turn can also benefit
from the family house, and so on indefinitely. Inheritance must be
completely abolished, except for the family house. This does not,
however, prevent each person from being rewarded individually for
Let us take another example. Someone has two children. One is a
good worker, and the other is lazy. At the age of twenty-one, they
both decide to go their own separate ways. They each rent a house
worth 100,000 francs.
The worker will rapidly earn more money than the lazy one. He
will then be able to rent a house worth twice as much as the first one.
If he has the means, he will even be able to rent both houses, one as
a country house….
So from page 100:
‘The creation of a new worldwide currency and a common language
would help you to establish a world government. The Auvergne
dialect is no longer spoken in Clermont-Ferrand, and very soon,
French will no longer be spoken in Paris, nor English in London, nor
German in Frankfurt. Your scientists and linguists should unite and
create a new language, inspired by all languages and made obligatory
in all the schools of the world, as a second language.
The same must be done with money. Worldwide currency values
cannot be based on the franc, the dollar, or the yen, but must be
based on a new currency created for the needs of the whole Earth,
without depriving one group of people who would ask themselves
why another currency has been chosen instead of their own.
Finally, the trigger required to bring about such a union is the
suppression of military conscription, which teaches only
aggressiveness to young men. Professional armies must then be put at
the service of the public.
This must happen at the same time in all countries so as to provide
an indispensable guarantee of security.’
‘As I have already told you, we know that our official arrival would
accelerate many things. But we will wait until we see that human
beings really want us to come, that they love us and respect us like the
parents that we truly are, and that our spacecrafts will not be
threatened by your destructive military forces.
To achieve this, make it known throughout the world that you
have met me, and repeat what I have said to you. Wise people will
listen to you. Many will take you for a madman or a visionary, but I
have already explained to you what to think of the imbecilic majority.
You know the truth, and we will stay in contact with you by
telepathy to give you confidence and additional information if we
think it is necessary.
What we want is to see if there are enough wise people on Earth.
If a sufficiently large number of people follow you, then we will come
Where? At the place you will have prepared for our arrival.
Have a residence built in a pleasant country with a mild climate,
with seven rooms always ready to receive guests, each with a separate
bathroom, a conference room able to accommodate twenty-one
people, a swimming pool and a dining room capable of seating
This residence should be constructed in the middle of a park and
should be protected from curious onlookers. The park should be
entirely surrounded by walls to prevent anyone from seeing the
residence and the swimming pool.
The residence should be situated at a distance of at least one
thousand meters from the walls around the park. It will have a
maximum of two stories and should be further screened from view by
an inner barrier of trees and bushes. Install two entrances in the
surrounding wall, one to the south and another on the northern side.
The residence will also have two entrances.
There will be a terrace on the roof where a spacecraft of twelve
meters in diameter may land. Access from that terrace to the interior
The air space above and around the residence should not be under
direct military or radar surveillance.
You will try to ensure that the area where this residence is built - if
possible larger than stipulated here - is treated as neutral territory by
other nations and by the nation on whose territory it is located, by
virtue of it being our embassy on Earth.
You may live with your wife and children in the residence, which
will be under your direction, and you will be able to have servants
there and invite guests of your choosing. However, the area
containing the seven rooms should be directly under the terrace, and
it should be separated from the section used by human beings by a
thick metal door, lockable from the inside, which is kept permanently
closed. An aseptic chamber should be built at the entrance to the
The financing of the project will be made possible through the
help you will receive from those people who will believe in you, and
therefore in us. They will be wise and intelligent, and they will be
rewarded when we come.
Keep a record, therefore, of those who contribute financially to the
construction and upkeep of the residence, however modest their
Also, in each nation throughout the world, appoint an individual
who will be responsible for communicating the truth, and who will
help others join together to spread it.
Once a year, on a mountain near the residence, gather together
from all over the world all those people who have heard about us
through these writings and want us to come. Assemble the largest
number of people possible, and have them think intensely about us
and hope for our coming.
When there are enough people, and when they wish intensely
enough for us to come without any religious mysticism, but as
responsible people respecting their creators, then we will land openly
and give you our scientific knowledge as our heritage to all peoples of

the whole world, then this will happen. If the love of life and
humanity’s love for us and itself are strong enough, yes, we will come

to progress in a manner which is dangerous for other worlds, then we
will destroy this civilization and its repositories of scientific wealth,

Communicate it throughout the world and do not be discouraged.
We will never help you openly, or in any way that would give proof
to the skeptics, since skepticism often goes hand in hand with
aggressiveness. Intelligent people will believe you since what you will
say contains nothing mystical.
It is important to us that they believe you without any material
proof. This proves to us more than anything else that they are
intelligent and so are worthy to receive our scientific knowledge.
Now go. You will not be forgotten if you succeed during your life
on Earth - or even after. If necessary, we can wait until the time of
your descendants to make our landing, because we can make you live
again scientifically, just as we can resurrect all those who have led
humanity along the path of human genius guided by the love of their
creators - so long as their remains are preserved in coffins or tombs.
The only help we will give you will be to appear in the skies more
and more frequently from now on in order to make people aware of
the problems, and make them want to learn more about the truth
that you are transmitting.
Gradually, thanks to these increased sightings, public awareness
will also increase, and our presence will no longer trigger stupid
adoration, but instead a deep desire within the population to make
contact with us.
You will call your movementMadech23- the "movement for
welcoming the Elohim, creators of humanity", which carries in its
initials a message,Moise a devancé Elie et le Christ, which means:
Moses preceded Elijah and the Christ.
‘Before we leave each other for the last time,’ he said, ‘do you have
any questions to ask me?’
‘You have interpreted the vision of Ezekiel as people equipped with
space suits,’ I replied, ‘and you told me that the atmosphere of your
planet was not the same as that on Earth. So why aren’t you wearing
a pressurized suit now?’
‘Because we too have progressed scientifically, and now we can do
without them. My face seems to be in the open air, but really it is
protected by an invisible shield composed of repellent rays inside
which I breathe different air from you. These rays let waves pass
through, but not air molecules. It's a bit like the way you prevent fuel
deposits escaping from certain ports in your technology by using
emissions of bubbles.’
‘Are nuclear weapons a danger for humanity?’
‘Yes, a great danger. But if humanity does not become wise and
peaceful, the existence of your nuclear weapons will mean that if the
need arises, we will not have much to do in bringing about the
destruction of your civilization. Perhaps you might even destroy
‘If you do not, however, and if you become a threat to us, we will
only have to destroy your stocks of bombs without sending offensive
weapons against you. We could do this with either rays, or telepathy,
in such a way that, in effect, one of the great powers would become
the aggressor, and this would automatically release a fatal retaliation.’
‘If people do not want to be exposed to that danger any longer, all
they have to do is take nuclear weapons away from the military. Such
nuclear power used with care could enable countries that lack energy
to make great strides forward. You urgently need to stop nuclear
weapons testing because you know nothing of the risks to which you
are exposing yourselves. However, if humanity continues to play with
nuclear weapons, it will simplify our task if we have to reduce you to
‘Do you have any women on your planet?’
‘Yes, it is mentioned in the Bible, and I made you note the
‘And children also?’
‘Yes, we can have children exactly like you.’
‘You told me you were immortal in some way. How do you prevent
‘This problem will, in fact, be making itself evident very rapidly on
Earth. To resolve it - and you should resolve it immediately because
you are already sufficiently numerous - you must develop
contraception and pass strict laws authorizing women to have no
more than two children.
If a couple has only two children, the population will arrive at a
point where it no longer increases. We will be watching how well you
deal with this too. It will be another test of your intelligence, which
will help us see if you have earned our heritage. This solution I offer
is for humanity now where people only live for seventy-five years on
average. For us, the problem is very different. We are not eternal, but
we are able to live ten times longer than you, thanks to a small
surgical adjustment, which in effect is the biblical "tree of life". We
have children, and we observe the rules, which I have just explained:
two parents, two children. This keeps our population constant.’
‘How many of you are there?’
‘We are a population of about seven billion.’
‘We have met on six consecutive days, but did you always go back
each time to your own planet?’
‘No, I returned to an intergalactic ship, which we use as a base and
which stays constantly close to the Earth.’
‘How many of you are on that vessel?’
‘Seven, and on our planet there are seven provinces. Each has a
representative on that vessel. If we add the two who are responsible
for the vessel, there are permanently nine of us.’
‘If the people here on Earth do exactly as you wish, what will
‘We will come officially and land at the residence, which you will
have prepared. We will ask you to invite there the official
representatives of the most important countries of humanity, in order
to bring about total unification of the people on the Earth. If all goes
well, we will allow humanity to benefit step by step from our
scientific advances. Depending on the uses that will be made of it, we
will see if we can give humanity all our knowledge and allow you to
enter the intergalactic era with our 25,000 years of scientific progress
as your inheritance.’
‘Are you the only world to have attained such an advanced level in
‘In this region of the universe, yes. There is an infinite number of
worlds inhabited by beings of the humanoid type whose scientific
level is lower than ours, although much superior to yours. What
makes us fearful of disappearing is the fact that we have not yet found
any planet with a civilization as highly evolved as our own. We have
economic relations with many other planets on which life has been
created by other people who must have reached a scientific level
equivalent to ours, because their religious writings prove this to us.
‘Unfortunately, we have been unable to find the civilizations who
created the closest of these worlds. But perhaps we will find them
farther on as we continue to search the universe, each time moving
further away. In most cases, their planets approached the sun too
closely, and life became impossible, or their sun exploded, or became
too cold. Although we have not noticed anything abnormal at present
in our system, all this makes us fear the worst.’
‘So there is no religion where you live?’
‘Our only religion is human genius. We believe only in that, and
we particularly love the memory of our own creators whom we never
saw again and whose world we have never been able to find. They
must have disappeared. However, they had taken the precaution of
putting a huge space station in orbit around our planet, containing
all their knowledge, and this landed automatically when their world
was destroyed. Thanks to them, we have taken on the torch, and we
would like to see this torch taken up by the people of the Earth.’
‘And what would happen if your planet was destroyed?’
‘In case our world is destroyed, the same arrangements have been
made in advance, so that you would automatically inherit all our

The Secret of Eternity
‘Do you really live ten times longer than we do?’ I asked.
‘Our body lives on average, ten times longer than yours,’ he
‘Like the first people of the Bible, that is between 750 and 1,200
years. But our mind, our true self, can be truly immortal. I have
already explained to you that, starting with any cell of the body, we
can re-create the whole person with new living matter. When we are
in full possession of our faculties and our brain is at its maximum
level of efficiency and knowledge, we surgically remove a tiny sample
of the body, which we then preserve. Then, when we really die, we
take a cell from this preserved sample and re-create the body in full,
just as it had been at the time the sample was taken.
I say, "as it had been at that time", meaning with all its scientific
knowledge and, of course, its personality. But in this case, the body is
made up of new elements with the potential for another one
thousand years of life - and so on eternally. But in order to limit the
growth of the population, only geniuses have the right to eternity.
Everybody on our planet has a cell sample taken at a certain age,
hoping that they will be chosen for re-creation after their death. In
fact they not only hope for it, they try to earn this resurrection during
their life. Once they have died, a grand council of the eternals
assembles to decide in a "last judgement", who among those who
died during the year deserves to live another life. For a period of three
lifetimes, the eternal is on probation, and at the end of this time, the
council of the eternals reconvenes to judge who, in the light of their
work, deserves to join the council of the eternals as a perpetual
From the moment that one wishes to have a new life, one no longer
has the right to have children, although this does not of course
prevent love. This explains why the scientists who were members of
the council of the eternals wished to create life on other planets. They
transferred their procreative instincts onto other planets.’
‘What do you call yourselves?’
‘If you wish to give us a name, even though we call ourselves men
and women in our language, you may call us Elohim, since we did
indeed come from the sky.’
‘What language do you speak on your planet?’
‘Our official language closely resembles ancient Hebrew.’
‘Each day we have talked here, weren’t you afraid other people
might have surprised us?’
‘An automatic system would have warned me immediately if
people had approached within a dangerous radius, by air or by land.’
‘What is your lifestyle and your work where you live?’
‘Most of our work is intellectual, as our level of scientific
development allows us to use robots for everything. We work only
when we feel the inclination - and then only with our brain. Only our
artists and our sports people work with their bodies and only because
they have chosen this.
‘Our highly developed atomic energy is almost inexhaustible,
especially since we have discovered a way to use the atom in a closed
circuit and solar energy. We also have many other sources of energy.
We do not necessarily use uranium in our atomic reactors, but several
other simple and harmless materials.’
‘But if you live so long, and do not work, do you not get bored?’
‘No, never, because we always do things we enjoy doing - especially
making love. We find our women very beautiful, and we make the
most of this.’
‘Does marriage exist?’
‘No. Men and women are both free. Couples exist. Those who have
chosen to live as such may do so, but they may have their freedom
back whenever they wish. We all love one another. Jealousy does not
exist, since everyone can have everything, and property is nonexistent.
There is no criminality where we live, thus no prisons and
no police. However, there are many doctors and regular medical visits
for the mind.
Those who show the slightest sign of psychological imbalance that
could threaten the life or liberty of others are immediately given
treatment in order to bring them back to normal.’
‘Can you describe the day of an average individual where you live?’
‘In the morning, they would get up and bathe, since there are
swimming pools everywhere, have breakfast and then do whatever
they feel like doing. Everybody "works", but only because they feel
like working, as there is no money where we live. Thus those who
work always do it well, since it is by vocation.
Only the eternals have specific tasks, for example supervising the
electronic brains and computers used for dealing with vital functions
such as energy, food and organization. Of the seven billion
inhabitants, there are only 700 eternals, and they live entirely apart
from the others. They have the privilege of being eternals but with
this goes the duty of doing everything for the others who are not
obliged to work.
To these 700 eternals, we must add 210 probationers (about
seventy each year, that is to say, ten from each province). Of the seven
billion inhabitants, there are only about forty million children. It is
only when they become of age - between eighteen and twenty-one
years, depending on the individual - that the children undergo the
operation, which gives them a life span of more than 750 years. From
then on, they too may have children. This enables the oldest of our
non-eternal inhabitants to know their descendants for up to fifty
Out of seven billion inhabitants, there are only about one million
inactive people, and almost all of them are under treatment for
psychological disorders. Our doctors treat them for a period of six
months. Most people are interested in the arts, and they paint, sculpt,
play music, write, produce films and participate in sports etc... We
have a leisure civilization in the full sense of the word.
Our cities have an average population of about 500,000 people
spread over a very small area. A city is in fact a huge house situated in
a high place, inside which people can sleep, love, and do whatever
These city houses are about one kilometer in length and height and
are traversed in all directions by waves used by everyone for travelling.
You tie on a belt, and then place yourself in a wave current, which
transports you very rapidly to wherever you wish to go.
The cities are cube-like in shape, so that they do not eat up the
countryside as they do where you live. Indeed one of your cities with
say a population of about 500,000 covers a surface area twenty times
greater than ours. The result is that when you want to go into the
country, you have to travel for many hours, whereas in our case, we
are there in only tens of seconds. The same architect conceives an
entire city, so that it will be pleasing to the eye and will harmonize
perfectly with the scenery surrounding it.’
‘But don’t the people who have nothing to do get bored?’
‘No, because we provide them with numerous activities. The
individual’s true value is recognized, and everyone wants to show that
they have worth.
Whether it be in art, in science or in sports, each person wants to
shine in order to become eternal, or simply to be admired by the
community - or by a woman. Some people like to take risks, and to
deprive them of the risk of dying would take away their joy of living,
and that is why dangerous sports are very popular.
We can bring back to life any injured person, but those who
practice these sports may do so only if they state in writing that they
agree not to be taken care of if they die during their sporting
activities. We have a kind of atomic automobile race that would
fascinate you and more violent activities like boxing, and even more
violent than that, a kind of rugby game, which is played in the nude
and where everything is permitted - boxing, wrestling and so on. All
this may seem barbaric to you, but do not forget that all extremes
must be balanced to avoid breakdowns.
An extremely sophisticated civilization must have primitive
counterbalances. If our people did not have their idols in their
favorite sport, they would have only one wish left, to die. The life of
another individual must be respected, but their wish to die, or to play
with death, must also be respected and permitted within well
structured and well defined specialties.
Where we live, contests are held each year in all branches of the
various activities, one of which is a worldwide contest, permitting us
to decide on the best individuals who deserve eternal life. Everyone
lives only for that.
Each year, whether it be painting, literature, biology, medicine, or
any other specialty where the human brain can express itself, a
competition takes place in every province, with a vote from the
eternals of that province; the "champions" are gathered in the capital
to submit themselves to the vote of a jury of eternals who designate
those who become "champions among champions".
These people are then presented to the Grand Council of eternals,
who finally choose those who are worthy of becoming eternal
probationers. This is the goal and everybody’s ideal. Distractions may
well take on a primitive aspect when the supreme goal is so high.’
‘Does this mean that the eternals have a totally different way of life
from the other inhabitants?’
‘Oh yes. They live apart in cities reserved for them and meet
regularly to make decisions.’
‘How old are the oldest ones?’
‘The oldest, the president of the council of the eternals, is 25,000
years old, and you see him before you now. I have lived in twenty-five
bodies up to this day, and I was the first one on whom this
experiment was successfully carried out. That is why I am the
president of the eternals. I myself directed the creation of life on
‘Then your knowledge must be immeasurable?’
‘Yes, I have accumulated quite a lot of knowledge, and I will not be
able to gain much more. It is in this way that the people on Earth
may be superior to us because the capacity of that part of the brain,
which accumulates information, the memory, is larger. Human
beings on Earth will be able to accumulate more knowledge than us,
and therefore will advance further scientifically, if they have the
means. This is what frightens those who oppose the council of
eternals. People on Earth may progress faster than us, if nothing stops
From page 113
‘The knowledge that students need to accumulate must be enormous,
and must take a very long time?’
‘No. Thanks to an important scientific discovery, which in fact
your scientists on Earth are beginning to consider, we can teach a
student his lessons surgically. Your scientists have just discovered that
if you inject the liquid from the memory of an educated rat into the
brain of an uneducated rat, it will learn what the other knew.
We can transmit information by the injection of brain memory
matter, thus our children have almost no work to do. They regularly
undergo injections of brain matter taken from people possessing the
information necessary for instruction. Therefore, children only spend
their time doing interesting things, which they decide on themselves,
such as rebuilding the world in theory and fulfilling themselves in
sports and the arts.’
‘You never have wars among the provinces of your world?’
‘Never. The sports competitions are sufficiently developed to
eliminate the war instinct. Besides, psychologically, the fact that
young people are able to risk their lives in games where systematically
there are many deaths during each event suppresses the war instinct.
This enables those who feel this instinct too intensely to satiate it
at the peril of their own life, without involving those who do not
want to travel along such perilous paths. If on Earth sports and games
were more dangerous but organized, it would greatly reduce the
chances of creating international conflicts.’
‘Are the seven provinces of your world similar?’
‘No, as on Earth there are different races and cultures. Our
provinces were created and based on those races and cultures, while
respecting the freedom and independence of each one.’
‘Would it be possible for a man from Earth to visit your planet?’
‘Yes, but you would have to wear a space suit adapted for your
breathing. You could live without such a suit in a special residence
where we have reproduced the Earth’s atmosphere. There, many
people from Earth live, including Moses, Elijah and Jesus Christ
along with many other living testimonies of our creation. We will be
able to bring all these people back to Earth when the time comes to
support your statements.’
‘Why not bring them back at once?’
‘Because in your incredulous world, if Jesus Christ returned, he
would be placed in a psychiatric institution. Imagine someone
landing among you saying he is the Christ. He would certainly be
mocked and quickly locked up. If we intervened by performing
scientific wonders to show he really was the Christ, that would bring
back religions based on God. It would also lend support to the idea
of the supernatural or the mystical, and we do not want either.’
Having said that, the small man saluted me for the last time and
told me that he would return only when all that he had asked of me
was accomplished. Then he climbed back aboard his machine, and it
took off and disappeared just as it had on other mornings.
