Letter from Beckjord to Helmut Loofs-Wissowa

Unread post by Dean Harrison » Thu Jan 14, 2021 2:10 pm

Most of the people here probably wouldn't know who these two people are (were).

Beckjord was of the golden era of Bigfoot, alongside John Green , Rene Dahinden, Paterson and so on. Over time, he turned and no longer believed Bigfoot was flesh and blood. In fact, he turned against pretty much everyone and began doing nasty and vindictive things to people. He turned into a troll.

I was just digging through some of my personal archives and came across a letter he had written to Helmut. For those who are new, Helmut was the first Australian academic to come forward in support of the Yowie and spent many years researching and documenting the Oren Pendek. He was very open about it, and had little care.

Beckjord died in 2008, and Helmut passed in Canberra in 2018. I'm not sure who passed this letter to me - it was either Beckjord or Helmut. I knew them both well.

I must say, for a letter worded like this from Erik....... he was definitely on his best behavior and not drinking at the time. He was the king of spray and had zero Morales.

Interesting read.

OPEN LETTER TO DR. LOOFS-WISSONA

Dear Dr. Loofs-Wissona:

I sense your frustration in the matter of the Laotian Bigfoot
and I assure you that I and many others have encountered the same problems
from scientists in the USA,Canada, the UK and Russia,etc. You are not alone.
Suggest you join the International Society of Cryptozoology where some
fellow-travellers reside in the journal. I believe Graham Joyner of Aust.
is a member. Also other Yowie people.

I also have some difficult news for you. My own research in the
field, over twenty years, has gradually brought me, kicking and screaming,
over to the idea that the Bigfoot creatures (a better term)- here or in
Laos, are not from our normal evolution and are outside of taxonomy.
You will, of course, resist this, but after more years of fieldwork, you
will come to see my point. Paranormal, or impossible, things happen to
investigators and the BF exhibits impossible characteristics. In all
countries.e.g.:



1) impossible weight causing impossibly deep tracks.
2) abilty, it would seem, to go invisible.
3) ability to subsist on a miniscule diet.
4) ability to read your mind.
5) ability to walk 6" above the ground - gliding.(sometimes only)
6) ability to not die when shot.
7) lack of any bones, anywhere, ever.
8) a seeming ability to shift shape from one type of animal to another.
9) failure to die accidentally - road-kill,etc.
10) ability to change track size and features as it goes.
11) appearance of strange extra images and faces in fur when photographed.
12) ability to communicate with kidnapees by telepathy.
13) inability to smash open flimsy doors and screens.
14) ability to evade the most sophisticated of traps and photo-traps.
15) ability to show up in parts and pieces in photos. Head only, head and
torso, but also full-body. Other parts simply "not there" = not just
hidden by bushes.
16) ability to make tracks in snow,etc, that start from nowhere, and
end suddenly. (No backwards-walking...)
17) Ability to be seen by part of a group of people, but not be seen by
others in the same group.
18) Ability to interact with ufos and to be in some, or by others.
Please do not allow the term ufos to distress you.
19) Ability to make tracks and not be seen doing it, while doing it.
20) Ability to be seen walking in snow, but leaving no tracks.
21) more to be added later. I think this is a goodly list.



I have experienced much of the above in person. I've seen the
creatures three times, have photographed them when nothing was there to be
seen, have found and followed miles and miles of tracks, have interviewed
hundreds of persons who have seen them, and two abductees. Have seen, and
photographed "unidentified objects in the air" (could be military).


My fieldwork is long and intense, and I invite you to compare notes.
If you wish for anthropological validation, let me advise you to save
yourself much grief and sadness - and work with anomalies researchers.
Standard science will always reject you. But with us, there is a home for
your work.

Sincerely,

Jon Erik Beckjord, BA.MBA (UC Berk)

I've just posted a comment on re-do yowies have a language about their ability to telepathically communicate.

I have made reference to all numbers in red many times and these observations are coming from a man Jon Erik Beckjord, who had many years experience and far greater knowledge than I.
This would have been seminal information at the time. I can say there are a few Forum members that would fully endorse his findings.
Thanks again Dean for uncovering the letter.
