1956, PONT-SAINT-ESPRIT, GARD, FRANCE, LOUIS TURI:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A ufology catalogue indicates that in Pont St. Esprit, Provence, France, in 1956 at night, 7-year old Louis Turi was awakened by something touching his foot and thought it was his little kitten snuggling up to him. He reached down to draw the kitten up to his pillow, and then saw five small monkey-like creatures surrounding his bed. They described as approximately 3.5 feet tall with penetrating black eyes shaped like almonds. He became frightened and paralyzed but was able to hide under the blankets.

Later as an adult, Louis underwent hypnotic regression and recalled that one of the creatures had pulled the blanket away from his head. The creature's scrutinizing eyes were less than two inches from his face, as if it were programming his mind.

Narratives:

[Ref. ui1:] UFOINFO WEBSITE:

A text presented as official biography of lecturer Dr. Turi appears on that website.

It tells that Dr. Turi is a successful Astrophile who lectures, teaches, and writes, as well as "giving practical and spiritual guidance to thousands of clients world-wide." It tells that he appears a lot on television programs and made "numerous unarguable and well documented predictions", such as predicting "in great detail the dramatic dilemma surrounding the events of 9-11" with "thousands of viewers as his witnesses."

It tells that he had several dramatic encounters with UFOs as well as being repeatedly visited by them as a child, and that the extraterrestrials have transmitted knowledge to him about the stars, as guides to our lives. A link tells where to buy his books.

It tells that Dr. Turi was born and raised in Provence "as was the great prophet Nostradamus" and that he studied engineering from the FPA College at home while singing and playing in a band, moved to England in 1973 to pursue his dream to become a pianist and received the highest distinction Musicianship Award Cup in 1976; after he graduated from the Royal School of Music in London he then worked as a recording artist for Phillips Phonograms Recording Company.

Later, he moved to the United States looking for an opportunity to promote his musical career, then received the "ASME Section 9 Nuclear Welding Test Certification and worked on the US Naval Base in San Diego, CA" and Pearl Harbor HI, while pursuing his passion to fly helicopters.

It is suggested he had difficulties when in 1990 when the US economy, the real estate and construction fields went down, and decided to turn to "his real passion and fate, the stars" and became "a full time successful astrologer" receiving a "metaphysical Doctorate from The Light Institute in Sacramento, CA" but was disappointed by "the conventional jargonized astrology", and now practices "the Seer's rare Divine Astrology method, which he calls Astropsychology", launched his own publishing company, and writes "incredible books of knowledge and wisdom."

It is said that he was abducted by aliens three times and that he is "a legitimate and honest recipient of extraordinary encounters that have influenced his fate to learn and teach the dynamics of our Universe and its relationships with the fate of mankind."

A text by Mr. Turi follows. He says that since the age of 7 he was have "programmed" by "extraterrestrial intelligences (UFOs) to bring to you new understanding containing certain subtle dynamics involving our universe."

Mr. Turi says he was born on February 26, 1950 in the south part of France in "La Provence." at Pont Saint Esprit: which he notes means "The Bridge of the Spirit." [It really means the Bridge of the Holy Spirit]. He says that no tangible answer or explanations were given to him about the little monkeys that regularly came to visit him "in the kingdom of the night", and that those "small airy creatures" with big menacing black eyes is "now identified" as extraterrestrial called the "grays" but at the time he interpreted them as "little monkeys."

He says that after many of their visits, he "gradually became paranoid", and could not be left alone in the dark and that his family still recalls his "awful screams just before bed time and sometimes in the middle of the night."

He says that "silhouettes and phantoms of the night were coming from the dim streetlight filtering through a dirty broken window" in the attic where he slept. He describes the house as an horrible place with an open sewer nearby attracting rats that almost ate a baby once, "attracted to the smell of milk on the suckling infant."

He says that during a chilly night, he was deep asleep when he felt something touching his foot and immediately thought it was his favorite cat "Grisette" wanting to share some affection and warmth with him in the bed. He first stomped the animal as he wanted her to come closer to the top of the bed, but she did not come.

He says he was then surprised and horrified to see four strange creatures about four feet staring at him from the bottom of my bed, cautiously looking at him "with their enlarged piercing black eyes."

He says he was in shock and unable to bring forward a single sound as his throat was tightened as if in a knot, "...even if I wanted , not a sound could come out of my mouth."

He put the blanket on his head to hide, waited, then slowly pulled the blanket away from his eyes and peeked out. He then saw one of the creature less than an inch from his "petrified face", and passed out.

It was too much for me that night and I simply passed out! The morning after, mom's screams got me out of my "deep sleep."

In the morning, he asked his mother if "they" were gone and after he explained what he meant, her mother told him it was only a bad dream. He the following weeks, "the scary visitors kept coming", and as he yelled in the night, as his behavior became erratic and his emotions uncontrollable, her mother wondered if he was perhaps being seriously mentally disturbed, but eventually he became "a little more trustful" of the creatures and would be perfectly fine the next day. As he grew older "the nightly Alien visitations slowly desisted", but "a firm knowledge of our close spiritual connection was born and kept maturing."

The text is followed by contact information to Mr. Turi's Promotional Director, and website.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Pont St. Esprit, Provence, France, in 1956 at night, 7-year old Louis Turi was awakened by something touching his foot and thought it was his little kitten snuggling up to him. He reached down to draw the kitten up to his pillow. It was then that he saw five small monkey-like creatures surrounding his bed. They had deep penetrating black eyes shaped like almonds, and stood about three and a half feet tall. He became frightened and paralyzed but was able to hide under the blankets. Later as an adult, Louis underwent hypnotic regression and recalled that one of the creatures had pulled the blanket away from his head. The creature's scrutinizing eyes were less than two inches from his face, as if it were programming his mind.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Shawn Atlanti, San Diego.

Points to consider:

Shawn Atlanti, Founder and former Director of San Diego UFO Society, was a long time advocate for the "Jonathan Reed" UFO fraud, before withdrawing his support of that hoaxed case after others proved it a hoax.


Bio of the witness on Art Bell's radio show at www.coasttocoastam.com/guests/1001.html

The witness was born in Provence in France, then went to the U-K and is nowadays is in the US, introducing himself as "Dr. Louis Turi", a medium, "astropsychologist", "Cabalistic Healer" and hypnotherapist, practices and writes about "Divine Astrology", issues predictions about disaster he say are caused by the eveil "Power of the Dragon", admires such writers as David Ickes, Frank E. Stranges, Nostradamus, Frank Boylan, Michael Heseman. He appeared numerous times on radio and TV shows such as Art Bell's or Jeff Rense's.

His website is at drturi.com. He offers "basic predictions" for free to visitors, and "advanced predictions" for paying subscribers. He sells books he wrote about how to have "a longer life", or DVDs such as "Nostradamus Natural Healings".

The childhood nocturnal bedroom creatures and the feeling of being touched and paralysed are typical of ordinary hypnagogic hallucinations.
