Billy Meier

"Billy" Eduard Albert Meier (February 3, 1937) is a citizen of Switzerland and alleged contactee. He is also the source of over 1000 photographs of objects claimed to be UFOs. Meier claims regular contact with the Plejaren, a group of extraterrestrials, and presents much spiritual and philosophical information from these meetings. He describes the Plejaran as humanoid much like the humans of Earth.


A farmer born in the town of Bulach in the Swiss Lowlands, Meier says his first extraterrestrial contacts occurred in 1942 at the age of five with an elderly extraterrestrial human man named Sfath. Contacts with Sfath lasted until 1953. From 1953 to 1964 Meier's contacts continued with an extraterrestrial human woman named Asket. After an eleven year break, contacts resumed again (beginning on January 28, 1975) with an extraterrestrial human woman named Semjase the granddaughter of Sfath.

In his teens, Meier joined the French Foreign Legion but says he soon left and returned home. He traveled extensively around the world pursuing spiritual exploration, covering some forty-two countries over twelve years. In 1965 he lost his left arm in a bus accident in Turkey. In 1966 he met and married a Greek woman, Kalliope, with whom he has three children. The nickname "Billy" came by way of an American friend who thought Meier dressed like James Butler Hickok a.k.a. Wild Bill Hickok.[citation needed]

Meier has created a large collection of controversial photographs. He claims these photos show spaceships (called beamships) as well as extraterrestrials (humans called the Plejaren). Meier says that the Plejaren gave him permission to photograph and film their beamships in order to produce some of the best evidence for extraterrestrial visitation.

Meier's claims are disputed by both UFO skeptics and some UFO believers , who argue that the photographs could easily have been faked and are unpersuasive. However, proponents of Meier claim that no skeptic has yet been able to truly 'fake' a Meier photograph, in their fine details, even using modern technology such as Adobe Photoshop or Hollywood special effects.

Many Meier proponents and believers exist among UFO enthusiasts, and his evidence has seen increased exposure through the efforts of an American representative, Michael Horn, who has appeared on popular late-night paranormal shows such as Coast to Coast AM.


Beginning in 1975, Meier began his official contacts ("official" in that evidence was to be provided publicly, unlike earlier contacts), communicating both directly (face-to-face) and by telepathy with a core group of the Pleiadeans/Plejarens, or Errans as he also refers to them (Erra being their planet in the Pleiades), who gave their names as Ptaah, Semjase, Quetzal, and Pleija, among numerous others.

These visitors reportedly hail from a star system beyond the Pleiades in a dimension that is a fraction of a second in the future from our dimension (an alternate timeline). These Plejaren have afforded Meier a more interesting sampling of evidence than derive from most such encounters, including highly detailed photography, videos, multi-toned sound recordings, the temporary use of a weapon, which he employed for trial on a nearby tree, and metal alloy samples.

Meier said the visitors charged him with certain informational and consciousness-raising tasks. As he undertook this mission he met with a strong deal of scorn and derision, including, his center says, twenty-one assassination attempts, including some by hostile extraterrestrial entities, which were met in significant part with the help of his Plejaren friends. Meier was uncomfortable with the megalomaniacal associations others would attach to his role as a representative, since they employed the term "prophet", but undertook the effort nonetheless.

In 1975 Meier established FIGU (Freie Interessengemeinschaft für Grenz- und Geisteswissenschaften und Ufologiestudien), a German abbreviation for the Free Community of Interests for the Fringe and Spiritual Sciences and UFOlogical Studies, a non-profit organization for the benefit of researchers into this field, and headquartered it at the Semjase Silver Star Center.


Meier claims that he was instructed to transcribe the conversations he has with the various extraterrestrial humans, some of which have been published in the German language. These books are referred to as the Contact Notes (or Contact Reports). Currently there are nine volumes of the Contact Reports (titled Plejadisch-Plejarische Kontaktberichte) published. Some of the Contact Reports were translated into English, extensively edited and expurgated, and published in the out-of-print four-volume set Message From The Pleiades by Meier case investigator Wendelle Stevens.

Meier's discussions with the Plejarens are highly detailed and wide-ranging, affording a fascinating body of claims running from religion and the afterlife to human history to science and astronomical phenomena to ecology and environmental dangers and even prophecies of future historic trends and events.

An additional aspect of the Meier case is the highly controversial book the Talmud Jmmanuel. The book was originally published in German in 1975 and is now being prepared for its 4th edition in the English language. It is said to be the translation of ancient Aramaic scrolls that were discovered by Meier and a colleague in Jerusalem in 1963. The book claims to be the original teachings and life events of the man named Jmmanuel. Extensive study has been made of the book by James Deardorff.

Criticism and controversy

The photographs and films

Some of the most important evidence for Meier's claims come from his large collection of photographs. These include images appearing to show UFOs in the Swiss countryside, the Apollo-Soyuz 1975 docking, and distant astronomical phenomena. Supporters believe that the images are exceptionally high quality and that a one-armed man would have been unable to create such remarkable fakes.

Critics such as Stanton Friedman and Jacques Vallee have believe them to be fakes and some have provided examples of similar photos, and have demonstrated that some appear to be photos taken from science fiction books, paintings and television programs. Meier's ex-wife says that she has seen the models used to fake the photos.

Other allegations include:

* Focus and light-direction problems are consistent with cut-and-paste and model work
* A picture of his Pleiadian alien contact "Asket" was an actress from the Dean Martin TV Show

Meier claims that these photos were altered by intelligence agencies and slipped into his collection in order to discredit his UFO case.

The metal samples

The metal alloy samples are said to have been given to Meier by the Plejarens and then passed on to Wendelle Stevens, who then had them tested by scientist Marcel Vogel. Vogel states that the metal vanished not long after his work was completed, preventing other scientists from performing their own analysis on it.

Exposure of fraudulent "contactees"

In the Contact Report discussions between Meier and the Plejarens, there is no hesitation in pointing out fraudulent "contactees" and exposing their deceptions. This has raised concern among some who consider certain UFO contact cases as reliable and authentic, and view the remarks by Meier and the Plejarens as attacks. Some well known alleged contactees that have been thus criticized as being frauds include George Adamski, and Raël (Claude Vorilhon), Howard Menger.

Additionally, Meier has often stated that he is the only human being to have contact with the Plejarens (previously known as Pleiadians), and that anyone claiming otherwise is a liar, a charlatan, or suffering from some form of schizophrenia. This negates claims by many persons who insist that they have had (or continue to have) contact in one form or another with "Pleiadians", including such channelers as Barbara Hand Clow, Barbara Marciniak, and Amorah Quan Yin.

The ET contact person Semjase

'Samjase' is pronounced as 'sanyasi' which is a common hindu word. Sanjase are those people who leave the materialism and opt for spiritualism in their whole lives. Hindu teachings of Karma explains the meaning more accurately. There is also a potentially disturbing detail concerning the name of the female alien "Semjase", which sounds similar to el Samyaza the heaven-seizer, as described in the Second Temple Book of Enoch, purportedly the one who originated and orchestrated the invasion program recorded in Genesis 6 (See: Nephilim). The Book of Enoch describes how some of these beings, led by Samyaza, decided to interfere with Adamic humanity, giving them arts of magic, writing, and technology. The Nephilim are described in Genesis as "men of renown", an interbreeding of the "Sons of Elohim" with the "daughters of men" (for which, Yahweh floods portions of the Earth to halt Nephilim influence, and, as some Orthodox Jews and recently some Evangelical Christian scholars say, so as to allow the Messiah to be born, suggesting a strategic, historical motive behind this seemingly pointless act of lust). Furthermore, the Watchers appear in other texts regarded as apocrypha, and are sometimes even regarded as a previously-created form of humanity, or "Celestial Sons". Meier fans counter that the spelling is different and that the names' sounding alike doesn't mean that they are the same, just as Robert and Roberta are distinct names. Second, Semjase is a female, and there is also a different being, Semjaza, who is the same as in Enoch, a male completely different human ET who apparently fathered the Teutonic race).

Meier himself speaks of two human males named 'Semjasa' who influence the Earth in much the same way as described in the Book of Enoch, a text that he says was altered for religious purposes. The first Semjasa, who lived around 389,000 years ago, interbred with native Earth-humanity, creating a lineage. The second Semjasa, said to be the same spirit-form in another human male, lived about 11,000 years ago and, as a remnant of Atlantis, seeded an Earth-human lineage, an inter-breeding of the Atlanteans with the wild humans of North Africa, Mesopotamia, and Northern India. Meier also claims that this was the origin of the Three Peoples: the original Armenians, the Ancient Hebrews, and the Aryans.

According to Billy Meier, the name 'Semjase' or 'Semjasa' simply means 'Semi-JHWH', referring to the JHWH, the highest rank and title in Lyran-descended societies. In both historical cases, Semjasa was said to be of lesser rank than the JHWH, being a 'Semi-JHWH', so the name could be associated with the title as well.

World War Three

Billy Meier has repeatedly warned of an impending Third World War beginning in November of 2006, 2008, 2010, or 2011. He has also denounced the terroristic activities and vigilante behaviours of various Muslim extremist groups, which he says only foments the possibility for war. At one time, Meier reported November, 2006 as the most likely start of World War III. This has since been revised to November of 2008. In any case, Meier states that in an upcoming year, four world leaders will die within seven days of one another as a sign that within merely 2 years of these events the long-feared world war will indeed erupt, unless terrestrials finally gain mastery over their reasoning to stop all these ills. He states that these are all prophecies, however, and subject to change, as opposed to set-in-stone predictions.
