Webmaster's Note

This book was written around 1972-73, when the Space Shuttle was in the early stages of development. The microprocessor was invented in 1971. Many technological obstacles described by Blumrich have been solved in the four-and-a-half decades since the book was written.

    This book is the result of a search. A search is like a question and as such provides as yet no clue to the relationship of the searcher to the object of his search. The person who asks must not necessarily believe in the existence of whatever he is inquiring about: he primarily looks for either a confirmation or a negation.

    Genuine search requires objectivity. The latter cannot exist without mental flexibility, since none of us is objective by nature. We all have opinions, the roots of which are spread out far and often are hidden in darkness. To have an opinion is both our right and our duty. To change this opinion becomes an intellectual obligation if the opinion proves incompatible with the result of the search. Such a situation is a challenge that we cannot evade and therefore a conflict that becomes the touchstone of our objectivity and intellectual maturity.

    The result of a search is not equally significant or convincing to everyone. The degree of intellectual conflict varies accordingly. The fervor of a controversy depends on the severity of such conflicts. But the deliberate application of objectivity softens the conflict and allows the controversy to become a discussion, a dialogue.

    It may also lead to understanding!

    Thus striving for objectivity, I am presenting engineering proof of the technical soundness and reality of the spaceships described by Ezekiel, as well as of the related events and procedures.

    Lacking any applicable experience as he did, Ezekiel often had to resort to figurative descriptions to be able to report at all that he had seen. Such figurative description is confusing and mysterious so long as one knows nothing of the underlying reality. However, when we penetrate these pictures, we see immediately a surprisingly clear report, free of contradictions. One is then able to also recognize, so to speak, direct and uncoded parts of the report and to comprehend their significance.

    It would appear that Ezekiel sensed the truth rather early. As his encounters with spaceships extend over a span of twenty years, we are in a fortunate position to deal with repeated observations of a specific type of space vehicle rather than an isolated event.

    The prophet displays an extraordinary gift of observation in describing structure and functions of this type of spacecraft as well as the living beings and events immediately related to it.

    Ezekiel begins his book with the description of the final phase of a spaceship's descent from a circular orbit to the earth and of its subsequent landing. This narrative is accompanied by a description of the main parts of the spacecraft. Remarkable is that in describing his last encounter with a spaceship, he explicitly stresses its apparent identity with the one he had seen twenty years earlier.

    Ezekiel also speaks of the commanders of the spaceships; he hears them talk, he observes their movements; on one occasion he witnesses a peculiar event involving the participation of a ground crew summoned by the commander. He takes part himself in flights in these spaceships; two flights take him to temples whose location and significance are still unsolved mysteries.

    The key to the clear understanding of Ezekiel's report lies in a very careful analysis of his description of the components of the spacecraft and of their function, carried out in the light of today's knowledge of spacecraft and rocket technology. This method proved successful very quickly. Further and increasingly detailed investigations and comparisons have shown that Ezekiel's descriptions are amazingly accurate. The amount and accuracy of detail reflected in his record lead to the conclusion that he must have possessed extraordinary gifts of observation and an almost photographic memory. This made it possible not only to develop a simple sketch, but also to express dimensions, weights, and capabilities in figures. Thus, for the first time, it became possible to free an ancient report on spaceships from its disguising pictures and to transpose it into the language of engineers. This breakthrough made it further possible to interpret occurrences which had seemed to have no real meaning.

    The results obtained show us a space vehicle which beyond any doubt is not only technically feasible but in fact is very well designed to fulfill its functions and purpose. We are surprised to discover a technology that is in no way fantastic but even in its extreme aspects, lies almost within reach of our own capabilities of today, and which is therefore only slightly advanced beyond the present state of our technology. Moreover, the results indicate a spaceship operated in conjunction with a mother spacecraft orbiting the earth.

    What remains fantastic is that such a spacecraft was a tangible reality more than 2500 years ago!  [p.3]
