Alan Godfrey with a drawing of the craft (credit:Evans & Stacy)

Since I launched myself into the world of the conspiracy theory I have been amazed by the amount of fervent debate from both sides of the fence; from those either trying to prove or disprove.

Almost any online search about conspiracy theories throws up a huge amount of web sites promising to debunk or support some of the most famous incidents such as Roswell, Big Foot, who really built the pyramids and of course famous assassinations such as JFK.

But many are fact light and laden with unsupported claims and theories that would probably sit well in a Hollywood film rather than on a site claiming to have a basis in fact.

Time is a great proving ground for conspiracy theories and the recent releases by the UK government of their UFO files dating from 1965 to 2008 only add further fuel to fan the flames of some believers who talk of sightings being covered up and blurred by concerted disinformation campaigns.

Of course, the more that people try to dispute or debunk a particular incident the more people will inevitably cry foul & level accusations of cover-ups, disinformation campaigns and the burying of evidence.

However to me the as yet unanswered case of Alan Godrey who talks of being abducted by aliens in Todmorden, West Yorkshire is one of the most interesting cases of the past few decades.

The Alan Godfrey story is all the more perplexing because of the initial investigation into the discovery of the body of Zigmund Adamski on top of a pile of coal that led to the alleged abduction described by Godfrey.

Forensic scientists who examined the body of Adamski were never able to identify a gel-like substance they found around the back of his neck near some burn marks.

They were also at odds when trying to justify the location of his body or also the state of his clothing.

Of all the mysterious reports of UFO or alien encounters I have come across so far researching my book this one is the most puzzling and remains a mystery to this day.

It reminded me of the incident that was reported in Paris I am researching as part of my book.

That spoke of someone allegedly breaking into a morgue and being caught trying to inject dead bodies with a substance; immediately my mind asked the questions how did this person get into the morgue and why would you inject a dead body?

Like the Alan Godfrey incidents, sometimes it is difficult trying to come up with a rational, logical answer that satisfies our curiosity.

I think one of the most interesting aspects of researching a non-fictional book are the characters you come across during that process.

Of course when you mention the word paranormal all sorts of connotations spring to mind and people inevitably will draw their own conclusions; but I am from the world of security consultancy and having not encountered this world before I have remained as objective as possible during the writing process.

I have also learned to not overlook anything as however small that clue may appear to be it can lead to something very significant. 

Michio Kaku, the renowned physicist, has often talked about time travel and how it may be possible, this being one of his videos:

Michio Kaku got a small mention in one of the many articles I had to research during my work and this was in connection with the speculation that the M6 crash and subsequent incident in Paris were actually part of some grand plot involving time travel.

Of course now having researched Kaku’s work I can see how this may be the case and this is something I have attempted to try and work through in the book; I make no conclusion but offer up some suggestions.

Equally the 1of26 blog offers very little apart from several notable figures from the worlds of science and literature; although there was no mention of Kaku I did see a reference to Ronald Mallet.

Ronald Mallett is another renowned physicist and someone who has made time travel a key part of his research, this is a video featuring him explaining his theories:

So is there a link or a theme? Certainly there’s a link between these two renowned physicists but whether that can substantiate a link to both of the incidents and the blog is something that is yet to be confirmed.

My book will come out early November and I am currently doing some final research into these and many more unanswered questions.

I have spent months researching, recording and writing about the alleged ‘M6 Paranormal Crash’ and also the connected incident in Paris that took place towards the end of 2009 and the Spring of 2010.

You may or may not beware of them but a simple search on Google will reveal thousands of pages about these incidents.

Speculation about the events include the possibility of time travel, alien abduction, an insurance fraud and even the creation of a black market for alien artefacts; nothing that I have researched about these incidents is normal, although nothing proves they were paranormal.

Of course they could also be a hoax or even a viral campaign; I have considered all options.

In the coming months I shall talk more about what I think I found and where I need help trying to pin down what may be the truth behind these mysteries that the Fortean Times called ‘modern folklore’ when they reported on them in April 2011.
