The following reversals were found on a program Art bell aired in September 1997 when he threw the phone lines open to employees (past or present) of Area 51.
First A Regular Caller Named Steve
Art: …you worked at S4?
Steve: ..No. That’s the area where I was living
Its September (A seemingly inconsequential reversal but shortly afterwards Art and Steve talk about September forwards – it is common in Reverse Speech to see topics discussed backwards before they are discussed forwards.)
Art: …this is a lot of a the kind of stuff that David Oates talked about when he talked about the NASA guys…
The sign of the sheeps that serve you, we know (This a metaphor referring to Reverse Speech. RS talks about itself as a tool for the people, or the sheep seeking a Shepherd.)
….all of that comes from what they were thinking subconsciously more or less and it could get jumbled together. I’m not very familiar with that. I just heard it ion passing at the time….
The rotten schmuck and I remembered here / They reversed the dial (An amusing reversal – he’s about to get busted by Reverse Speech. The information he is “revealing” came from what he remembered in my previous broadcast.)
The Famous Satellite Loss Caller
The following section is from a frantic caller to Art’s program who was subsequently cut off the air when Art’s satellite went down. First of all here is the entire forward dialogue. Notice the signal breaking up towards the end.
Here are the reversals that I think are clear enough to quote. I have received many emails about this particular call with many people claiming they have heard other reversals that I missed. This may be true, but there ones below are the only ones I think are clear enough to quote.
Area 51 ‘Cleaner’
45 Seconds Caller
One Final Word
Recently “The Famous Satellite Loss Caller” reportably phoned in to Art Bell confessing that his call was a scam and I have been accused of being wrong in my assessment of the truthfullness of this call. Let me restate my position on this call. The following reversals have been on my site for over six months and there are are no reversals posted that either confirm or deny the truthfullness of this call – they are ambiguous. A two minute phone conversation is far too short to draw any firm conclusions either way, and I have been less than impressed with the many reversals sent to me supporting either position. This includes a recent challenger to me on air about this situation, playing reversals that he claimed showed the caller was a fake. These reversals were shakey at best, and had earlier been rejected using research protocols, along with other reversals that supposedly supported the genuity of the call. Reversals MUST meet all research Protocol requirements otherwise innaccuracies will occur. I reject over half of all reversals initially documented before they ever reach the air or my site. The reversals I have posted are the only ones that could be considered clear.
In my radio presentation of this analysis I did lean towards the possibility that it was a genuine call, however I was not willing to be emphatic about that position. My positive stance was because, I could document no reversals that said it was a fake AND the vast majority of reversals from the callers following were also in support of its genuinity. This position of mine was probably a little too hasty, and serves to remind all of us that we must stick to the reversals and the reversals ONLY when drawing conclusions. And these reversals confirmed nothing either way. The only thing one could be clear on was that he “wanted to get through” to Art, to quote his own reversal.
Correct reversal documentation AND correct analysis without embellishment will always lead to correct conclusions. I have been very confident with the documentation protocols for many years but we are still learning the fine art of interpretation. This episode has only reinforced the necessity for even greater conservatism in conclusions drawn based on reversals only that meet all research protocols (some of these protocols are posted elsewhere on this site).
