“Selected by Extraterrestrials” is the title of a book published late last year (2015) by William Mills Tompkins, an engineer and visionary thinker involved in the secret space program starting in the 1940s. This book covers, roughly, his experiences up through the 1960s (Apollo program).
I got through most of the book in a marathon reading session last night. These are my initial thoughts on it, and though I may write more about it later, I might not. I am sure I will have cause to refer to its author now and then, as he has now stepped out as a proponent of “disclosure.”
The book itself is indifferently written, appears somewhat thrown together, and contains numerous typos and similar minor glitches. Most of the illustrations are small but pertinent.
It was edited by Dr. Robert M. Wood (holds a PhD in physics from Cornell, 1953), an avid UFO researcher who worked most of his life at Douglas Aircraft and related companies, with help from Nick Redfern, a British writer well known for his interest and writings in the UFO subject.
The story is presented as a series of memories, recollections and historical data, not necessarily given in proper date order, but considered apropos to the subject being discussed. The data and events are often presented as dialogues between Bill and his colleagues, sometimes to the point where they don’t seem like real conversations. Most of the data seems to be based on things Bill personally experienced, but not all of it. There is usually no careful distinction made in this regard.
The story builds roughly towards Bill’s big accomplishment of getting NASA to use his engineering approach to develop the Moon landing project and execute launch control. Rocketry up to that time had been a dirty outdoors job, and Bill saw that this was not compatible with the reliability and electronics requirement of a manned Moon landing. He designed air-conditioned indoor facilities for testing, launch and mission control and got NASA to go with this basic design. Gone were the drafty outdoor rocket testing facilities and leaky, insect-infested underground launch bunkers common in earlier missile and satellite programs. He also had developed an extremely detailed approach to project design and management.
In architecture a sub-story is a building level below the basement; in ecology it is a level of forest growth beneath the canopy; and in writing it is a more basic story being told through the plot but not directly by the plot.
The sub-story in this book is adamantly mentioned by its author on numerous occasions and is the real story of this book. Interviews I have listened to with the author have picked up on aspects of this sub-story but have not tried to present it full-on.
It is very unclear to what extent this sub-story is true. The author admits that there was a lot of conjecture involved in developing his own view of this. It touches on many aspects of life that are not well understood by most people or are in fact being kept secret by our planetary managers.
The sub-story, in brief, is this: Our planet, Earth, has been of interest to space-faring groups from other planets for some time. The exact nature of this interest is unclear, though it seems to involve the physical, mental and emotional robustness of Earth humans, as many other groups seem to be having problems with these factors. We are now at the point, as a planet, where we can begin to confront the technologies of space travel and the various awarenesses that must accompany those technologies. Thus, contacts have been made by various off-world groups, and working relationships have been developed. All this has been, up to recently, off the public record for the most part (it’s supposed to be a SECRET). There are at least two major groups competing for our attention and cooperation. One seems more warlike and intrusive, while the other is more thoughtful, communicative and “helpful.”
All the space-faring ET (or otherwise) groups seem significantly technologically advanced compared to us, to the point where it seems they could easily defeat or overwhelm us, whether that be through direct physical confrontation, or by mental means. The various planetary managers here have come up with a variety of strategies to deal with the fact that we seem to be on the short end of this stick.
In modern history it appears that the Germans were the first to be contacted. There was a huge movement towards the end of the 1800s in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy to discover some method to leave this planet. It apparently failed, but that did not end ET involvement. It continued in various forms in modern Germany, and efforts were apparently finally successful and working spacecraft were built and flown. During and after the war, this whole operation was moved to South America and Antarctica. The project seems to have come under significant influence of the more warlike groups, which Tompkins calls the “black hats.” However, the “Nordics” or “white hats” continued to press forward with their own agenda, and to use various means to distract or discourage the “black hat” projects.
One apparent way that the Nordics used to influence human space-related projects was by sending in their agents in the form of very attractive – often blond – secretaries (now known as Administrative Assistants). Of course, the great majority of corporate secretaries were no more than that, but the practice of using pretty young women to help with typing paperwork, phone calls, etc, gave the Nordics a cover for their own work. The women Bill tells us about in this book are real game-players. They seem to have little or no moral scruples outside of their secret mission, and were willing to flirt with or go to bed with whoever was necessary to get the control and information that they desired.
Playing into that was a corporate culture of extremely lax moral conduct, especially in the Los Angeles area. Bill wrote repeatedly of corporate managers going out to parties with their secretaries one weekend, then with their wives the next weekend. Some of the wives behaved as badly as the secretaries did. Similar girls were used by Douglas to “host” military people when they were in town for a product or concept demonstration (in effort to win a military contract) – often referred to as a “rain dance.”
The managers were required by their bosses to attend these parties, and overt sexual contact was encouraged by the more brazen of them. The ones like Bill who refused to partake had to use various means to avoid the ultimate disgraceful act, but were certainly morally compromised by being forced to attend and keep it all secret, along with their regular classified work.
Abductions and strange terror attacks by weird-looking semi-human thugs was also mentioned in the book. He recounts at one point an incident indicating that the Roman Catholic church was keeping track of such attacks on its parishioners and was very concerned about them.

The amount of words Bill devotes in this book to interactions with these secretaries, and descriptions of how cute and alluring they were, cannot be disregarded. This whole dynamic was a major part of this story. What with the style of the day being mini skirts, and Women’s Lib not yet a household word, that whole culture was much different than it is today. Yet Admin Assistants at my company still wear high heels, and many look quite alluring. Old traditions die hard.
The ET threat
Bill was told, and firmly believed, that ET was a threat to human survival and that his work was contributing to getting Earth up to a point where it could defend itself. These were the “black hats” who were the threat, in his mind, as they were warlike and possessed vastly superior firepower. Bill created conceptual designs for a wide variety of weapons systems – based on his interest in naval history, as well as curious “flashes” he got (telepathically) from unknown sources – that Earth could develop and deploy to defend itself.
The ET threat is a common theme in an extensive group of military-related information releases. Another example is Sean David Morton’s “Sands of Time” series, which follows the exploits of another important figure in the secret space program. A third example is the Corey Goode data, which addresses this topic directly. And a fourth example is LRH’s research on ET operations, which is not very complementary to ET.
All this data must be taken in the context of how the perception of “a threat” has been used in human relations by criminals to distract more honest people from learning the actual activities of the criminals. I take the basic position that any ET group that is unwilling to come out and show itself to the general population and to share information openly and publicly is basically a criminal ET group – and that means all of them except maybe the Iargans (“dog” people who say they landed here by mistake).
Selected by ET
The other part of the sub-story is that Bill felt he was “selected” for this work, and that some ET force has been interacting with him since childhood. His ship model-making “hobby” was so extreme with him that it indeed appears to be more an aspect of some mission than an example of extraordinary talent applied to a strong interest. There are persistent stories of people being “sent” here to reincarnate as humans to do work here. I have no reason to doubt that this is possible. However, it seems an odd way to get something done, as opposed to just sending teams here to work openly.
The world of “real” human relations at these levels is a world of intrigue, of secrets, and of constant criminal interference. Almost no one involved in this phenomenon has seen their way clear to a better answer for how to deal with the appalling intensity of some criminal minds and of the game of bringing good order into the physical universe – a place apparently created with no intention of it ever becoming orderly.
A limited hangout or partial hangout is, according to former special assistant to the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Victor Marchetti, “spy jargon for a favorite and frequently used gimmick of the clandestine professionals. When their veil of secrecy is shredded and they can no longer rely on a phony cover story to misinform the public, they resort to admitting—sometimes even volunteering—some of the truth while still managing to withhold the key and damaging facts in the case. The public, however, is usually so intrigued by the new information that it never thinks to pursue the matter further.”
Is this story, in combination with others like it, “some of the truth while still managing to withhold the key and damaging facts?”
I think this is quite possible.
One odd aspect of all these stories is that they NEVER MENTION LRH or his work, even though he was involved in the Los Angeles area aerospace scene prior to and immediately after the war, and subsequently gave many lectures mentioning ET operations in the universe and in relationship to Earth.
His techniques for getting data were positive and possibly even therapeutic. He could teach his techniques to others, and he could undo mind control attempts as well as blackmail operations to a certain extent. He had discovered ways to free a being from all those secretive control factors and restore control to the individual. He refused to work for the ONR, refused to work with the Soviets – considering them criminals, and refused, in general, to compromise with any individual or group attempting to lead him off course.
LRH had achieved a considerable reputation as a writer, and then as the founder of Dianetics and Scientology, before he died and that reputation has been continued and upheld by his students. He had a lot to say about exopolitics, ET, and even their ships – considering he seldom ventured into the subject of the contemporary political scene – yet he is never mentioned, never quoted, and never credited with being the discoverer of considerable material along these lines. This leads me to believe that none of the contemporary players in this “disclosure” game is sufficiently ethical to make disclosure work for our long-term benefit.
The author and his associates
This page: http://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/Tompkins.htm is the best I have found so far in establishing Bill Tompkins as a real person, technically gifted, and involved with the Navy and other groups.
His “editor” Robert M. Wood also worked at Douglas Aircraft (1954 and 156-1993) though never managed to meet Bill during that time (it was a big company). He was a UFO enthusiast, which is as much as I know about him at this point. I always suspect PhDs of being CIA assets.
I don’t know much about Nick Redfern either, though I have heard him interviewed. He is a younger chap and knows his way around the “alternative community” in the UK.

There is a rather revealing quote on the back cover of this book:
Early in 2001 I called on Admiral Hugh Webster…We had a five hour meeting on my ongoing book-writing concerning the extraterrestrial threats to our planet. After Admiral Webster read portions of my document and backup technical documentation, I asked Hugh, “how much of this can I include in a published book?” He said, “Bill, TELL IT ALL. This is most important to our country. Don’t leave anything out.”
