Alien Languages: An Attorney’s Groundbreaking Investigation Into Possible ET Language Forms

Book Review by KEN KORCZAK

Just when you think that most UFO books today have grown monotone, repetitive and grasping for new relevancy, along comes an author with a refreshing angle to explore an intriguing niche of ufology no one else has significantly covered.

In How to Talk to an Alien, NANCY DU TERTRE takes on the question of human-to-alien communication, but also, the overall nature of just what constitutes an “alien language.”

That includes possible alien alphabets, writing styles and scripts, spoken languages and psychic or telepathic-enabled communications.

But there’s even more, such as a gander down through history at ancient forms of writing that have been attributed to “angels,” long before our culture began framing everything in our reality in terms of modern, empirical science.

What’s fascinating is that du Tertre comes to this issue out of left field.

Her day job has nothing to do with flying saucers and extraterrestrial aliens. She’s a high-powered New York securities litigation attorney and a successful businesswoman.

Du Terte stumbled into the weird world of the paranormal more or less by accident.

She writes that she had no interest in paranormal topics until age 35.

It was then that she was invited to attend a workshop exploring the topic of intuition for psychologists by noted psychotherapist Dr. Ron DeAngelo

She was the only non-psychotherapist invited, but Dr. DeAngelo thought his by-the-book lawyer friend would find it beneficial. (Du Tertre details this event in her book “Psychic Intuition.”)

To make a long story short, a bizarre experience at the workshop launched du Tertre into an entirely new phase of her life.

She began to explore her own psychic abilities by studying (and then interning) with a famous psychic police detective. Next, she took formal training in REMOTE VIEWING, the “psychic spying” protocol developed at the Stanford Research Institute at the behest of the CIA and the U.S. Department of Defense Intelligence Agency.

About 10 years later, du Tertre emerged with her old paradigms shattered — or perhaps more accurately — vastly expanded.

Somewhere along the way, du Tertre’s psychic explorations cross-pollinated with the subject of extraterrestrials (or extradimensionals), UFOs and the like.

Nancy du Tertre

All this eventually led to the writing of this fascinating book. It begs the question:

“What do the aliens have to say and how do they say it?”

The title is my only small quibble with this outstanding book. It’s perhaps not so much a “how to” that teaches readers “how to talk to an alien” — on the other hand, we can certainly learn from her example.

Rather, the  author provides an overview of cases involving close encounters where people engaged in two-way communications with other nonhuman beings of a wide variety. She then seeks to formulate some theories and offers opinions about what it all means.

As I was reading, I was reminded of the great theoretical physicist RICHARD FEYNMAN. He had a knack for asking basic questions that no one else would even think of asking, questions that were quirky and weird, such as “Do numbers come in colors?”

Well, Ms. du Tertre is asking those basic, yet unusual kinds of questions, such as, “Do aliens have mouths with actual tongues in them, vocal cords and a larynx that they can use to make the sounds of speech?”

Then she looks at specific cases from the famous accounts, such as that of Brazilian farmer and lawyer Antônio Vilas-Boas, who was abducted in 1957 and forced to have sex with an alien.

The author brings this and many other well-known cases an intriguing new angle because she is laser-focused on revisiting these events with the purpose of looking specifically at how communications were experienced by the subjects.

She also provides us with new perspectives on monumental historical events, such as the biblical story of the Tower of Babel, and the works of the famous English mathematician-genius and polymath JOHN DEE, adviser to Queen Elizabeth I.

Dr. John Dee

Dee is well-known for having “channeled” what is known today as the Enochian Alphabet, also called the “Angelic Alphabet,” the “Divine Language,” or “Language of the Gods.”

Dee reports that he received a visitation from a levitating angelic figure who gave him a “scrying stone.” Using it, Dee coaxed out and ratiocinated a symbolic form of transmundane, symbolic language.

Dee collaborated with the famous alchemist, occultist and medium Sir Edward Kelly.

Dee’s description of the events that led up to the development of his angel language sounds a lot like one of today’s alien visitation scenarios. What Dee called an “angel” back then fits the description of what we would most likely call an “alien” today.

It’s all deliciously fascinating!

What’s better is that du Tertre’s brings a fluid writing style which makes this a user-friendly read for a mainstream audience. She never talks down to her readers — but neither is this book dumbed down. If you consider yourself an intellectual who likes a challenging read, How to Talk to an Alien delivers.

The only sad thing for me is that the 175 pages melted by for me as quickly as a pleasant dream during an afternoon nap.

I was left wishing that du Tertre could have given us a couple hundred more pages.
