Bret Colin Sheppard will be showing his work and talking about it at the new venue provided by the Tranquil Buzz Coffee Shop in downtown Silver City, New Mexico. Bret will be talking about his Cosmic Art, where he perceives entire themed scenes in images from space agency photos. The process he is identifying as "Hierophany."
The word hierophany recurs frequently in the works of the religious historian Mircea Eliade, which he preferred to the more constrictive word theophany (an appearance of a god).
Eliade argues that religion is based on a sharp distinction between the sacred (God, gods, mythical ancestors, etc.) and the profane. According to Eliade, for traditional man, myths describe "breakthroughs of the sacred (or the 'supernatural') into the World"—that is, hierophanies.
In the hierophanies recorded in myth, the sacred appears in the form of ideal models (the actions and commandments of gods, heroes, etc.). By manifesting itself as an ideal model, the sacred gives the world value, direction, and purpose: "The manifestation of the sacred, ontologically founds the world".
According to this view, all things need to imitate or conform to the sacred models established by hierophanies, in order to have true reality: to traditional man, things "acquire their reality, their identity, only to the extent of their participation in a transcendent reality".
Biography of Bret Colin Sheppard
Bret Colin Sheppard was born in Gary Indiana on September 17, 1966. He has been through an extraordinary amount of childhood trauma, and early ET abduction by benevolent ET’s helping him through his trauma. During his childhood he was taught esoteric knowledge from various books given to him by members of his mothers friends and cult members of various organizations. He was groomed as an artist by a beautiful Nordic woman named “INO” who worked at the time as a caricature artist for Playboy magazine. She taught him all about perception, and how to draw what he sees in nature.
Bret Colin Sheppard experienced a time anomaly where his anomaly finds from the future were shown to him in art class at his high school. Who ever did this time mission also knew that Bret has a photographic memory. Years later, he feels compelled to pursue looking for anomalies in NASA images of the moon and Mars. He is known in the anomaly community for some of his finds, the Lunar Acropolis, the "Jupiter 2 UFO on Mars" and the Lion of Cydonia. Bret is writing his book on his anomaly finds, plus what he found deconstructing the manipulation of photos from space by our space agencies. His current book is called "Flyover Tsiolkovsky Crater" about the base on the moon seen by Ken Johnston Sr, NASA Whistle blower. His new book is "Digital Moon" published in August of 2017, is about the processes of CGI and other methods used by NASA to obfuscate anomalies, plus Bret's extraordinary journey as an experiencer, shown the future at 15 years of age by an agency operative of the government. He went on to found the “Lunar Anomaly Research Society” to reveal what he has discovered in Lunar images.

But Were Afraid to Know” and “How to Talk to an Alien”
There is a tendency among many people today to misunderstand or misinterpret the psychic methods used in remote viewing. I am a remote viewer, trained in several different types of remote viewing including Controlled Remote Viewing and Associative Remote Viewing. Unlike purely intuitive, psychic or artistic methods, remote viewing is highly structured and requires strict adherence to formalized steps and procedures. Ingo created it this way deliberately so it could be turned into a kind of tool that could be analyzed and reviewed for accuracy. I have always defined remote viewing as “clairvoyance with protocols.” Since I am also a trained psychic detective, spiritual medium and medical intuitive, I also use a number of other more self-taught methods to access psychic information.
Ingo always told me that “they” (the CIA) were lucky to get him as one of their first major psychic guinea pigs because he was an artist. He understood that our rational brain is often incapable of accurately or completely “describing” what we “see” with our minds - particularly scenes or images that have no true corollary in reality. Words are effective but only up to a point. In fact, as I explain in my book “Psychic Intuition,” language is one of the biggest barriers to accessing psychic data. Non-verbal ways to communicate using such vehicles as movement, frequencies, shapes and colors (think: dance, music, art, theater) are often more effective at communicating certain realities than mere words.
Some of Bret’s most powerful and fascinating material comes from his drawings of what he “sees” in the lunar photographs. He suggests that what he sees is not mere “pareidolia” (defined in Wikipedia as “a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus (an image or a sound) by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists.”). Bret goes a bit further and suggests that what he sees is an actual communication of data. From the lunar photograph below, Bret “sees” what appear to be two satyrs, one seated, sprawled out, on what looks like a large chair or throne, and the other standing next to him, on the left, with outstretched arms. While these images are clear to me, I saw something very different.
I sketched the profile I saw (shown below):
Squint your eyes and soften your vision to see the sketched images and they will suddenly pop into sight while looking at the lunar photo. It is interesting is that my sketched profile (which looks like some kind of exotic-looking man’s head with a beard and spiky hair) resembles the smaller images of satyrs sketched by Bret. It is as if we both see different things but they are born of the same “reality” of satyrs and mythological beings.
I learned many years ago that if you put ten psychics in the same room and ask them to do a psychic reading on something, you will likely get ten different answers. Does that mean that psychics are frauds? Or, does that mean that one got it right and the other nine were wrong? The answer is no on both counts. What I have learned is that in the murky and ambiguous realm of perception and multi-layered realities, we all have an ability to “see” it from our own particular angle or perspective. Generally speaking, the ten psychics who give ten different answers will all be somewhat accurate about a limited part of the reading. No human can deliver all facts about any given slice of reality. We are all like the various facets of the same crystal.
When you do psychic work – clairvoyance, prophecy, past lives, ESP, telepathy, psychometric, divination, medium-ship, etc. – you are, in effect, allowing yourself to “see” these different facets of reality. You begin to understand, as Bret clearly does, that not only do we not share identical versions of reality, but reality itself may manifest its richness only under certain conditions. Speaking as an attorney trained in securities litigation, I was always taught to rely exclusively upon evidence in order to prove a “reality.” However, as I have navigated psychic, paranormal and extraterrestrial waters over the last few decades, I have learned that “proof” – like Bret’s artistic interpretations of the lunar surface - is really nothing but a good legal argument that appeals most strongly to the greatest number of people. Unless and until more people open their eyes and their minds, our collective understanding of reality will remain limited and impoverished

The subject matter attained from embedded NASA Lunar Orbiter images are reflective of our true history and human mythologies. I am very happy to share what I have discovered in my lifetime pertaining to human origins and prehistoric events.. - Bret
