It all began for me in the year 1977.

So, what is The PROGRESSIVE TECH CENTER, a.k.a. "The Ranch"? It can be described differently at every level. "The Ranch" is best described at the top level as a "civilian" version of Area 51, located in the high desert of Arizona. A place where exotic technology is researched, developed and deployed.


The PROGRESSIVE TECH CENTER's mission is to create clean green healthy and sustainable communities by promoting the scientific and technological advancement of humanity. The center shall provide technical assistance in the form of advance or exotic scientific research, experimentation, engineering, and related informational materials and education. The center shall also provide financial aid and technical assistance covering such areas as energy, transportation, housing, health and rejuvenation, and organic agriculture, and shall create a prototype model community that forms a secure foundation for future communities.


The PROGRESSIVE TECH CENTER is a nonprofit "scientific" 501(c)3 corporation, setup to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions from private individuals, grants from government agencies and private foundations.


Many researchers have stepped forward such as Richard Hoagland of the Enterprise Mission suggests it should be located in Albuquerque New Mexico, Jim Rabidwolf recommends it should be located on an Indian Reservation in Durant Oklahoma, Gary Voss of TAP-TEN Research thinks it should be located in Show Low Arizona, and several others suggesting their "ideal" locations as well. Personally knowing the location of "The Ranch" is near Phoenix Arizona, though the actual location is actively being searched, after speaking with John Hutchison's wife, the meaning or perhaps the symbology, the mythology behind the word Phoenix and its use with the city of Phoenix AZ, and how it all connects with "The Ranch" project. It begs the question, "Why am I drawn to Phoenix AZ?". There is little doubt in my mind that the Phoenix area is a VERY mystical place, a spiritual place, especially with a series of visions of the future that were given to me. The meaning behind the Phoenix myth is the key that unlocks the door and I think gives a clue as to why Phoenix Arizona!

To offer some understanding, I present The Mythology of The Phoenix:
"... Said to live for 500 or 1461 years (depending on the source), the Phoenix is a bird with beautiful gold and red plumage. At the end of its life-cycle the Phoenix builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young Phoenix arises. The new Phoenix is destined to live, usually, as long as the old one. In some cases of mythology, however, this is not true. The new Phoenix embalms the ashes of the old Phoenix in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis ("the city of the sun" in Greek). The bird was also said to regenerate when hurt or wounded by a foe, thus being almost immortal and invincible — a symbol of fire and divinity. Tears from a Phoenix can heal wounds. ..."

In terms of DEEP symbolism here, will we see the "Old World" (the old Phoenix) pass away, a time of destruction, and then a new beginning, a "New World" (the new Phoenix), a New Age will arise out of the ashes? A time of death and rebirth. Or, perhaps there's a different meaning all together, a change by which man will reach the stars? A different way of thinking where the Phoenix is a metaphor related to thought. Now, its important to note that according to the myth, the Phoenix is a bird of flight. So, this closely correlates with the primary activity at "The Ranch" - the construction of antigravity spacecraft (the new Phoenix). This is clearly a different way of space travel.

The myth is clearly telling us a story, but how this story is "correctly" interpreted is the key of what's to come. By inference, I think the old Phoenix represents NASA: "The new Phoenix embalms the ashes of the old Phoenix in an egg made of myrrh". The ashes of the old Phoenix simply means scraps of technology or methodologies. The egg symbolizes new life, life that is transported by the new Phoenix across a vast distance to a place called "the city of the sun". This place is described as an alter of the sun god, Ra. It is therefore presented as a "gift" to Ra. The "egg made of myrrh" indicates to me the egg, encapsulated as new life, perhaps a new way of thinking, is considered anointed or sacred. Is the "the city of the sun", Heliopolis, a place called Heaven as described in The Book of the Revelation? Is the sun god, Ra, the God of Old Testament? What and where is this place called "the city of the sun" if indeed its out in the distant cosmos? Is the Phoenix myth an early description of the alleged "rapture" scenario? In addition, the bird lives in Arabia. Phoenix AZ is Arabia-like, a hot dry desert. Its also interesting to note it will "regenerate when hurt or wounded by a foe, thus being almost immortal and invincible". I should mention one key piece of information, a "heads up" if you will, shown to me in my vision, that a team of assassins, a rogue element of the government WILL be sent in and try to stop these craft from taking off. THEY WILL NOT SUCCEED! THEY WILL BE STOPPED! Immortal and invincible - perhaps?

So yes, I see many parallels described between the Phoenix Myth, "The Ranch" project, and The Mission. Many very interesting parallels and perhaps a better understanding of what's to come.


This facility, I nicknamed the Paulden Fortress, is for sale in the foothills of Prescott National Forest north of Paulden, Arizona. Their asking price is $6,000,000 for 160 acres that includes living space, guest rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, conference lobby, pool, spa, gift shop, etc.

We toured this 160-acre property that is situated in the Prescott National Forest in north Paulden. It has several issues:

  1. A mile of street pavement is required, which will lead up to the property. This can be quite pricey and may be prohibited due to state laws.
  2. Extensive repair to the existing facility is required.
  3. New facilities are required such as shops with some sort of security system.
  4. Add in wooden sidewalks and pavement to reduce dust.

All-n-all, we estimate an additional 4 million dollars is required to bring this facility up to our requirements.


There is also a runway for small aircraft outside the Prescott National Forest. Its about two miles from the Paulden Fortress.



Vacant land in the Juniperwood Ranch area typically runs under $2,000/acre.

Fig. 8 below shows the business model of The Ranch. The Ranch is a collection or consortium of researchers, inventors, innovators, engineers, machinists and technicians assembled together to form a Limited Liability Corporation or LLC.


Figure 16. The business model of The Ranch Consortium LLC showing funding and revenue streams.


The deliverable of the project teams of The Ranch Consortium LLC shall be intellectual property. This includes electrical/electronic schematics, plans, mechanical drawings, computer hardware, computer software, technical documentation and specifications, flow diagrams, and machined parts and prototypes.

The funding for the project teams of The Ranch Consortium LLC shall be used to purchase tools, test equipment, computers, office equipment and supplies, materials and material storage, electronic parts and components, land or property, housing, and salaries.

The investment, banking, accounting and legal team of The Ranch Consortium LLC shall be involved in licensing agreements and revenue stream management between the LLC and public business entities. Licensing agreements such as a license to manufacture shall be negotiated and a revenue stream determined.

The investment, banking, accounting and legal team of The Ranch Consortium LLC shall be involved in all funding activities provided for and intellectual property management created by the project teams.


The type of project team personnel we are looking for to fund at The Ranch are those that think outside the box. Those that aren't constrained by or conformed to the mainstream paradigm. These are the ones that can and will change the world.

Stanton Friedman’s law simply stated, "Technological Progress comes from doing things differently in an unpredictable way".


The analogy that perfectly describes this "exotic" technology to be developed at The Ranch is shown in Fig. 9 below.


Figure 17. The Technology Analogies: A Concord stagecoach is to the NASA space shuttle, as the Benz Automobile is to the X1, as the Rolls Royce Phantom 1 is to the craft built at The Ranch.


Yes, the saucer-shaped craft that will be developed at The Ranch is being compared to a Rolls Royce automobile. A state-of-the-art vehicle of its day. But, by the same token, NASA's space shuttle is being compared to a Concord stagecoach!

You'll also observe in Fig. 9 that the craft built by Otis T. Carr, the X1, has attributes related to both the stagecoach and the Phantom 1. An evolutionary step between the old and the new era in transportation technology.



Lets face it, rocket technology isn't going to get us to the stars! The saucer-shaped crafts that will be built at The Ranch will make NASA's space shuttle project look like something out of the 19th century. The craft's propulsion system operates on torsion field physics, a principle not fully understood by today's mainstream physicists. However, it will be understood at The Ranch and put to its full use.





Ralph Ring, an associate of Otis Carr, gave a fascinating lecture at this years Tesla Tech 2007 Conference. Over the years, the name of Otis T. Carr comes up with regard to a flying machine he was said to have built and tested as well as a power source, which he dubbed the Utron. Scant details are available as seems to always be the case with such reports. However, in Carr's case, he did receive a US Patent 2,912,244 for an ‘Amusement Device.’ On reading the patent and examining the diagrams it seems to be a Trojan Horse method of recording his discovery. Otis became acquainted with the reclusive Nikola Tesla at the hotel where he resided. Tesla loved to feed the pigeons in New York's Central Park and one day instructed Otis, then studying art and working in the hotel, to buy two kilos of unsalted peanuts as pigeon food for him. Over a period of three years, after each delivery of peanuts, Otis had the opportunity to converse with Tesla on his various discoveries. From that knowledge, his own insights, and the aid of his small team, Carr, built a number of flying disks, which worked.... prior to their experimentation being forcibly terminated by government agents. The principle of operation stated by Carr was that “any vehicle accelerated towards an axis compared to its inertial mass of attraction becomes immediately activated by the energy of space and acts like an independent force.” Ralph Ring is a brilliant innovative technician who as a young man in the late 1950s and early 1960s worked closely with Otis T. Carr.

Nikola Tesla was a genius of his day back in the late 19th and early 20th century. He created the AC dynamo and the polyphase power distribution system, which ushered in the second industrial revolution. Both Jim Murray and Konstantin Meyl lectured at Tesla Tech 2007 held near Salt Lake City Utah about the more esoteric aspects of Tesla's research, which included Tesla's wireless transmission of electric power.

Jim Murray's lecture covered the energy research of Nikola Tesla, discussed Tesla's missing "Blue Book" and Otis T. Carr's missing "Blue Book". Could there be a relation between these books, and is there a connection to the Air Force "Project Blue Book"? Jim covered a FREE Energy technique he used to shuttle energy (i.e., energy reuse) back and forth, and observed electromagnetic torsion field effects.

Konstantin's lecture covered Tesla technology and gave a fine demonstration of Tesla's wireless power transmission system.

John Hutchison, rogue scientist, inventor, experimenter and creator of the Hutchison Effect demonstrated exotic behavior of metals such as cold melting of metals at room temperature and antigravity using an arrangement of Tesla coils:

"One day in 1979, I turned on my Tesla coils, radio-frequency generators, static generators and a host of other devices all at once to study possible field interactions between my equipment, I couldn’t believe my eyes: a bar of steel that was on the floor was suspended in the air for a second, then it fell to the floor with a bang!"

Dan Davidson addressed this subject quite eloquently in his lecture presented at Tesla Tech 2007 held near Salt Lake City Utah. Dan covered what are called ORMEs or Orbitally Rearranged Mono-atomic Elements. They're also known as exotic M-State materials or high spin-state materials. These are materials that have both unusual aetheric and materialistic or physical properties, and when ingested or taken orally, are immediately absorbed into the body. The effect is profound. These materials provide a "direct connection" or gateway between the aetheric realm and the physical realm by affecting what are called microtubules within a living cell. The connection between the physical realm and the aetheric realm is greatly enhanced.

It is taught in Christianity that our bodies are composed of three components - the mind, body and spirit. To be more specific, the mind contains our identity - who we are. The body is our physical body or physical manifestation in the REAL world and the spirit is our aetheric body. The aetheric body is considered to be perfect, without blemish, and eternal. After physical death, its the mind and spirit of the person that is presented before God in regards to the final judgment.

With that said, its the interaction between the aetheric body and these microtubules, the engine within the living cell, that's involved in the healing process. The ingestion and absorption of these M-State materials into our bodies enhances or greatly amplifies this interface causing the body to not only spontaneously heal itself, but also reverse or regress the age of the physical body to the actual state of the aetheric body - a literal and proverbial fountain of youth, to be twenty something again, and again, and again. This material is not a drug or a pharmaceutical, I would perhaps consider it to be a type of catalyst, or a type of catalytic inducing process. The aging process would essentially be halted and regressed, and the body completely healed. The outcome of all this is what is called a "spirit man", a man that is immortal, a man that possesses unusual supernatural powers such as telepathy and telekinetics. The mind, body and spirit become one and immortal.

Thorsten Ludwig gave a fascinating discussion about his work developing a ZPE sensor at Tesla Tech 2007 held near Salt Lake City Utah. He touched on an interesting technology using tuning forks, which parallels my work using the Accutron Tuning Fork Watch. I suggested to Thorsten about placing this sensor at these gravity anomalies such as the Santa Cruz Mystery Spot and the Oregon Vortex and do long term measurements.

Researcher and lecturer Richard C. Hoagland, founder of The Enterprise Mission is a former museum space science Curator; a former NASA Consultant; and, during the historic Apollo Missions to the Moon, was science advisor to Walter Cronkite and CBS News. In the mid-1960's, at the age of 19 (possibly "the youngest museum curator in the country at the time"), Richard created his first elaborate commemorative event -- around NASA's first historic unmanned fly-by of the planet Mars, Mariner 4. A simultaneous all-night, transcontinental radio program the evening of the Encounter (linking the museum in Springfield, Mass., and NASA's JPL control center, in Pasadena, Ca.), co-produced by Hoagland and WTIC-Radio, in Hartford, Ct., was subsequently nominated for a Peabody Award, one of journalism's most prestigious.

Since 1983, Hoagland has been leading an outside scientific Team in a critically acclaimed independent analysis of possible intelligently-designed artifacts on NASA (and other) data sets -- beginning with the unmanned NASA VIKING mission to Mars in 1976, and its provocative images of a region called "Cydonia." Hoagland and his Team have been invited at least four times to various NASA Centers since 1988, to brief thousands of NASA scientists and engineers on the results of their on-going "Cydonia investigation." In 1989, Hoagland and his colleagues briefed then-Chairman of the House Committee on Space Science and Applications, Representative Robert Roe, on the status of their "Mars Investigation." Chairman Roe, before his sudden and unexplained resignation from the Congress, directed NASA to acquire better images from Mars during its then-upcoming "Mars Observer mission"; Mars Observer's equally sudden and tragic disappearance in 1993 precluded any new data relating to "Cydonia." In 1993, Hoagland was awarded the International Angstrom Medal for Excellence in Science by the Angstrom Foundation, in Stockholm, Sweden, for that continuing research. In the last 4 years, he and his Team's investigations have been quietly extended to include over 30 years of previously hidden data from NASA, Soviet, and Pentagon missions to the Moon -- with startling results.
