The astronaut's revelation was made during a July 19th interview by host Mike Siegel on the popular, late-night radio program, Coast to Coast.
During a discussion that
on Cooper's beliefs that extraterrestrial beings are visiting planet Earth
and that some UFO's
spacecraft, Siegel asked Cooper: "Who were the space kids?"
Cooper answered that "the space kids were children with exceptional mental abilities run through a kind of MK program, like the things that are coming out now."
He went on to describe how NASA's mind control program emphasized cultivation of the children's psychic abilities and that it involved telepathy, remote viewing, and out-of-body-experiences (OBE's).
Cooper's remarks generally
support the claims of a growing cadre of Americans, now in their thirties,
forties, and fifties, who are
recovering memories of unusual classes that they were enrolled in as young children during the advent of the Space Age.
These "study groups" included speed reading lessons that enabled students to comprehend entire passages at a single glance, the use of learning machines to teach them vast amounts of information, card games and other situational exercises involving clairvoyance, and seminars in the guided imagination that forms the basis of remote viewing.
It is believed that NASA's mind control program was directed at preparing children who would later be able to communicate with the non-human intelligent species that humanity might encounter in space.
This thesis is supported by the fact that one experiencer remembers being tutored in a hieroglyphic alphabet that author Fritz Springmeier has identified as a set of "intergalactic symbols" developed by NASA for the purpose of communicating with extraterrestrial civilizations.
The accounts of some individuals
suggest that in some cases, the children involved were given drugs to enhance
memory and learning and were physically spun on table top-like devices
to induce the altered
state of consciousness associated with OBE's.
sighting: It was in 1951 over Germany. He and several other pilots
were flying F-86 jets -- "We were super-sonic, barely,"
-- when they looked up and saw what appeared to be a large group of "double
lenticular shaped" aircraft, classic flying saucers, flying in formation.
"These craft were much higher than our plane could go, though I couldn't
tell how high. They were going faster too, but I couldn't tell how much
faster." Over the next two or three days, he and other pilots saw "several
hundred" of these craft. "They flew formation maneuvers very much
like our own squadron would fly."
He and the other witnesses were uniformly convinced they were seeing a
technology that wasn't human.
In one scene, Gordon Cooper
travels to Australia
to monitor the first human to orbit Earth (John Glenn) from a communications
link in the outback. There, he tells the Aborigines that he is an
"astronaut", to which he gets a reply... "oh, you too?"
