Extraordinary claims. Ordinary investigations.

Gauche Encounters Imagery

With his gracious permission, we also reproduce here the images and illustrations that go with it.

Left, Peter Rodriguez drawing of the thing that looks like a brain, 1976.
The cyclops eye, the cortical appearance and the general mashed potato shape reminds of the hypnotic brain in Uranus from Journey to the Seventh Planet, 1961, which can be seen on the right.


John Hodges drawing, 1976, looks different but is also similar to a brain. It shares the elyptic area without color from the bubble anti-nuclear brain from
Space Children (1958). It’s perhaps significant that Hodges report also deals with nuclear weapons.

Bonus pictures here, and again, be sure to read the original Gauche Encounters, Bad films and the UFO Mythos.

Bonus video: If you also read The Eyes that Spoke, now thanks to this thing called Internet you can also watch the seminal segment where the Bifrost alien explains how the eyes speak. It’s about seven minutes into the clip below:
