…or Let’s Go back to…Jupiter!   

I don’t type particularly well, or very fast and chances are everyone knows what I mean when I say type. But does everyone also know where this word, type, comes from? Really, no joke intended.

Of course it comes from the word typewriter, a now essentially antique machine, which was the forerunner of the word processor/computer, etc. and which, amazingly enough to me, may actually be unknown to vast numbers of people. Such is technological progress.

Just what that may have to do with Jupiter will, hopefully, be explained.

The prophetically accurate information about Jupiter’s moon Io is among the most fascinating in the Billy Meier case. And, like most of Meier’s information, unless you’ve been deliberately digging into it, or searching through the research work done by others into the case, you probably wouldn’t know about it. The reason is that while he’s written and published thousands and thousands of pages – up until relatively recently on a typewriter – Meier himself never promoted or otherwise tried to draw attention to all of the very specific scientific information, such as we shall discuss.

Of course skeptics will try to discredit Meier’s claims, such as stating that Meier was wrong about particles from Io contributing to Jupiter’s rings. Yet NASA discovered, and clearly stated, that was the case and did so well more than a month after we can absolutely show that it was included in Meier’s information, from 1978, that Wendelle Stevens had in his possession by March 9, 1979. (In the same copyrighted, dated, published book, Stevens also mentions being told that there are two planets beyond Pluto that will be discovered around the time of the new millennium, which they were.)

And more internet searches will amply confirm Meier’s detailed information about Io, as I have already published here. So how did Meier know the information about Io and Jupiter that he published before “official discovery”? In the face of undeniably accurate, scientifically corroborated information, the skeptics like to say that he backdated it, which we show is not correct, or that he got it from already available information, which is also easy to refute. For right now, I will spare you a lengthy discussion about all of the known, logistical factors that preclude that likelihood, or even possibility. Naturally, some skeptics may demand that now but will they really be willing to go through all the documentation and trouble to dispute it?

Now, as mentioned before, Meier typed everything out and quietly started to disseminate copies to a small circle of people, mainly in Europe, in 1975. If you didn’t already know about it somehow it’s unlikely that you would come across or find it. Again, this was long before the internet age. So, let’s continue discussing how the typewriter – and also TV crime and detective shows – fit into all of this.

Bring in the Detectives 

You probably know that there’s an abundance of American crime shows on TV that focus on high-tech forensics to solve the cases. Interesting as all of the technology may be, real life investigation still requires much human effort, leg-work and plowing through the details of the evidence to solve the cases, perhaps a little more like it was portrayed on TV as in the old days of cranky, iconoclasts like Colombo (“Oh, excuse me, m’am, just one more question, if I may…”). It seems that British TV still features more of these kinds of characters, doggedly determined, irritatingly prying and inquisitive, in other words more representative of real life than the more glamorized, glib, technology dependent ones in U.S. shows.

This is quite relevant to the Meier case, in as much as Meier is a real person, with the richest imaginable, complex and detailed personal history. Unlike all of the fakers, poseurs, charlatans and phony UFO “experts” and “contactees”, who yammer away at various UFO and/or paranormal events to milk the market for what it’s worth, Meier is the real deal and he goes nowhere to try to prove it.

Imaginary Lives 

The complex, rigorous, adventurous, real life elements of Meier’s life also stand in stark contrast to those of today’s breed of armchair experts, whose lives center around a lot of online time. This may also include playing various exciting, science fiction-type online games and there’s a high chance that they use a screen name and/or avatar instead of their real identity. In other words, multitudes of people now live vicarious, imaginary lives whereby they imbue, and attribute to, themselves all sorts of imaginary, inaccurate, unearned qualities, characteristics, abilities, etc. Such pathetic delusions, now ubiquitously shared online by ever-growing numbers of otherwise unaccomplished people, shows the democratization not of information online so much as the democratization of mediocrity and, quite often, plain old cowardice. I can’t count the number of people using phony screen names who’ve anonymously attacked Meier and me.

Certainly most – if not all – of these people haven’t investigated and tried to solve difficult, information rich situations, involving logistics, locales, eyewitnesses, expert analyses, available resources, motives, etc., through low-tech real life means. There is no evidence to show that they have done any personal interviews and investigation of evidence. They have no idea of the role that these real life situations, play in investigations. They are simply used to doing an online subject search, hitting the key and getting what they think is all there is to know about a given subject and/or person, all too often full of disinformation from skeptics, defamers, etc. And they can feel very insulted being told that they are wrong, inadequate in their thinking, drawing incorrect conclusions, etc., though they can’t offer any credible rebuttal.

Real Lives, Real Facts 

So let’s see how that could apply to the typewriter, let alone getting back to Jupiter. As mentioned, Meier typed out all of his information, contact conversation transcripts, etc., by hand, as in one hand, at speeds of up to 200 words per minute in German. When he was finished, in order to disseminate it, he had to either have made a carbon copy (look it up) or mimeographed it (ditto). Then it could be brought, mailed to, or picked up by someone. There was no email, no Send button to push and thereby instantly spread the information worldwide. I know that’s very hard for some people to imagine but it’s really true nonetheless.

It also means that it could, and did initially, often take a very long time for Meier to communicate and spread his information, certainly compared to these days. When, in the late 1970s, Meier attracted the attention of the investigative team of Wendelle Stevens, Lee and Brit Elders and others, and even Gary Kinder a bit later, he and the rest of the world were still in the typewriter age. That means that if someone did get a copy of Meier’s information in the U.S., it could be information that was easily weeks’ to many months’ old. After a while, it could be that more recent information reached the investigators more quickly should it have been sent by FAX or mail. (Perhaps Lee and Brit Elders will clarify that, for accuracy’s sake.) The point being that communications then were far, far, far slower than since the advent of the internet, email, etc.

This becomes more relevant when we speak about the importance of Meier’s prophetically accurate scientific information. Some time after Meier began disseminating his transcripts in German the first primitive English language translations began to appear. What these, and all other later transcripts, in different languages, have in common is the numbering system that was used when any of the extraterrestrials spoke with Meier, beginning in January of 1975. Each sentence, of each and every extraterrestrial that was spoken to Meier started off in each transcript with the number 1. This applied to each of them also when there was more than one involved in the same conversation.

This mechanism was introduced as a safeguard against the accurately foreseen, false claims that Meier was backdating information that would otherwise have to be conclusively accepted as prophetically accurate. So whatever the contact number, if sentence number 14., spoken by Semjase said one thing, it said the same thing in ALL other copies in ALL other languages…as indeed is the case. This starts to become more important when one confronts the claims of various skeptics that Meier backdated information and uses retrodiction to make accurate prophecies out of material that he picks and chooses. (It should be noted, however, that not all translators have always included the numbers, at least initially, in their published versions. However, the originals, and many copies already existent, carry the numbers.)

By the way, how many people have verbatim transcripts of their conversations going back six decades, i.e. Meier´s conversations with Asket, from 1953, and with Semjase and the other Plejaren, from 1975?

Plausible Deniability 

I’ll also mention that there are times when some concealment of all the details, or of details that are so ironclad as to leave no doubt and no reason for people to think through the details themselves, occurs. This is found in certain contacts when Meier is told something like, “That would lead too far.” Naturally, this mechanism also provides a great opportunity for skeptics and cynics to attack and reject the material, as do other little “bumps in the road”, which seem to have not been entirely accidental on the part of the Plejaren either.

This entire concept is also thought of as some “excuse” by the skeptics for not having been provided with every single irrefutable fact that would conclusively prove the Meier contacts to be absolutely authentic. Please, if these people exist and are so far in advance of us technologically, might they not also be well beyond our relatively primitive mouse-in-a-maze mentality and have input some mechanisms to prevent the most vulnerable among us – often the various skeptics and “experts” – from having a psychotic episode if forced to accept the reality of their existence?

About Publication…in the “Old Days” 

Often, when confronted with previously published documents and books by Meier, the skeptics try to find fault, such as that a book may have been published a year or two after the discovery that we maintain Meier published before such “official discovery”.

So, in order to put everything in context and perspective now, we have to revisit the typewriter AND the means by which Meier’s transcripts found their way into published books, etc. Not only did his information have to be typed out, reproduced and disseminated as explained but putting it into books took an inordinately long time compared to today. Since there were no word processors and online dissemination/publication technologies, books came into being through rather time consuming and cumbersome processes, which included what’s called typesetting (note the description that includes, “the old, quite laborious and expensive process of producing print-ready material by hand-setting individual lines and pages of type”). I can barely believe that there’s any need to explain this but there really is.

So to publish a book, to self-publish such as Wendelle Stevens did with the six different volumes he put out on the Meier case, could easily take more than a year per book, as you can see from the copyright dates. But Stevens had to have the original transcripts much earlier in order to first get them translated into English, another time consuming process in itself, especially in this case. And the fact is that the mimeographed copies of the English language transcripts sometimes got disseminated before the actual book versions came out, giving us even more of a record of their original publication dates, etc.


The irony of the most important of the Jupiter information, about Io and about the ionized ring of particles around Jupiter from Io’s volcanic eruptions, is that Wendelle Stevens didn’t ever refer to it! Even though it’s clearly in the Contact 115 from October 19, 1978, he was, understandably, focused on the dozen specific predictions in that contact, only a couple of which had been fulfilled at the time that he – accidentally – received the information from Meier. Remember, human beings always have motives for doing things, which doesn’t necessarily mean bad intentions. But if Stevens and/or Meier were truly involved in some hoax, backdating of information, etc. they certainly wouldn’t have deliberately (somehow) found  a way to backdate the critical information on I0 – the most important discovery of the Voyager mission, please keep in mind – and then not capitalize on it!

As a matter of fact, and worth giving careful thought to, Meier never sought to profit from his knowledge of the future. Think back to his 1951 and 1958 foretelling of computers in every home, interconnected electronically around the world, i.e. the internet. Wouldn’t you think that someone who was “in it for the money”, as some skeptics claim, would have easily positioned himself to be a multi-millionaire if such were his intentions? So the skeptics are left with a funny dilemma, they can claim that Meier backdated and hoaxed things, which we show is not the case, or they can claim that if he really did know and foretell these things he would have positioned himself to profit by them, clearly reflecting their own materialistic values, not Meier’s.

In Conclusion

Actually, rather than draw the conclusions for you, or go on to present more facts to support the conclusions that I and others have drawn, over the past four decades, I’ll leave it to you to think through and consider the information and points raised above. I will be a little bit redundant and again point out that having initials after one’s name, various credentials that supposedly grant one authority, etc., are no guarantee that the possessor of such actually has the thinking skills necessary to solve unusual and unexpected real world problems, such as the ones they may not have encountered within whatever hallowed halls of academia have been their home, while they pursued their accreditation or assisted others in doing so

And, whether they know and/or acknowledge it, the very thought that a so-called “Swiss farmer” not only knows far more than all of them about the planets, stars and outer space and, in fact has already BEEN there, is beyond tolerance for almost every scientist, let alone the skeptics and self-satisfied armchair experts who live their little virtual lives online

Those skeptics who cynically try to pick apart the documentation in the Meier case are approaching the matter prejudicially, in a completely non-objective, unscientific way, as a debunking mission, without regard for all of the valid, comprehensive elements stated above. If approached in a truly scientific, logical way it will become clear to an objective researcher if the material is authentic or not.

But at least now even the skeptics will know what a typewriter is…and why it just may be of importance in the overall picture.

One comment on “What’s a Typewriter?

  • Michael, you never cease to amaze me. Your excellent ability to express “Truth and “knowledge” about the Billy Meier case always reveals the sincerity and the integrity, and the dedicated human that you are.
    Thank you for educating the world !
