Meet David F. Shoemaker, Gemologist, Photographic Artist, Lecturer, Ufologist, and featured speaker at the La Cruces, New Mexico Star Knowledge Gathering, the International UFO Conference in Laughlin, Nevada and the MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) meetings in Phoenix and L.A.
Guess what David brought to Tucson and was exhibiting at the Congress Street Expo? Crash Site Debris. From pieces of a UFO that crashed near St. Joseph Missouri in July 1947...
David believes that the Crash Site Debris (aka CSD in metaphysical nomenclature) from the 1947 Missouri crash site and the Roswell and Plains of San Augustin (west of Socorro), New Mexico crash sites "are all part of the same extraterrestrial crash which broke up at the edge of the atmosphere and was subjected to extremely high friction temperature."
I had heard from several sources prior to the Show that David would be at the Congress Street Expo exhibiting and selling pieces of a UFO. Shown at right are several of the larger pieces of the alien craft David brought to the Show. I was raised and educated Missouri not far from St. Joseph myself (Kansas City) and had never seen any flying saucer crash site debris before. Needless to say I was rather curious to see what David was exhibiting and wanted to share it with my report browsers. They don't call Missouri the "Show Me" State for nothing, you know...
At first I was afraid to approach the pieces out of fear they might be highly radioactive. However, David assured me they had been tested and were stone cold. Makes sense once you consider that the technology involved in the drive systems of intergalactic class ships is so advanced they are probably fueled with H20. David reported that he came into possession of this CSD in a moldy cardboard box, handed over by a friend who knew of David's interest in rocks, minerals and meteorites and who told David he now had something that would prove to be "not of this planet". The story goes that as his friend's mother lay sick in her death bed she told him about how she and his father had witnessed the crash on their farm in 1947, knocking off the tops of some trees in the process.
The farmer couple heard on their radio about the flying saucer which had crashed and been found in Roswell, New Mexico at the same time. Because those witnesses received a lot of ridicule and grief from the government and public, they decided it would be best to bury the crash debris so no one could see it after waiting 3 days for it to cool down. David's friend must have been skeptical as he did not go to dig it up after his mother told him about the crash, and as the years passed he forgot about it. However, when David's friend conducted a damage inspection subsequent to heavy flooding of the farm in 1996, he found the CSD exposed where there used to be a knoll by the creek.
David has had this CSD extensively tested by authoritative labs and sources, and has assembled those test results along with research sources and anecdotal information in the report shown at left. I obtained a copy of the report and according to the Colorado School of Mines, the CSD is "Material of artificial origin, Not a rock." The University of New Mexico's Institute of Meteorics concluded "Not a Meteorite".
Analysis by x-ray diffraction has revealed the material is mainly a variety of cristobalite, a mineral in the tetragonal system which is a form of SiO2 - polymorphous with quartz, coesite, stishovite and tridymite. According to the report, tridymite is found in moon rocks and meteorites, and tridymite alters into cristobalite when subjected to high temperatures, as would be the case when a stricken UFO disintegrates upon an uncontrolled, high speed entry into the Earth's atmosphere.David had a binocular scope at his booth for examining the CSD up close. Shown at right is an image of a piece of the debris under magnification. Some of the material is peppered with included "zero gravity" spheres of over 99% pure iron. Since rust happens, David points out the existence of these unoxidized metallic spheres as further evidence that this material has unusual properties best explained by an extraterrestrial in origin. I had to admit the little spheres did bear a resemblance to chondrites in one of the meteorite specimens in my own collection.
However, I also had to admit that none of my meteorite specimens exhibit any evidence of the thread patterns preserved in the rather remarkable piece of Missouri CSD shown at left. Of course David has measured the thread, and it works out to something like 39.27 threads per inch which is hardly a standard terrestrial thread, even when converted to metric, or belonging to the British Whitworth system which was also in use circa 1947.
While interviewing David, I learned that CSD has been recognized by prominent authorities in the human metaphysical community. According to Melody's latest "Z" supplement to Love Is In The Earth, crash site debris "has provided contact with n-dimensional beings of extra-terrestrial origin bringing information with respect to technological advances, innovative metal working techniques, advanced healing methodology, music and art development and elevated alchemy. The contact has always been one of harmony, accord and scientific communication... It has further enhanced "highs" associated with both physical and mental pursuits. It has also been used in games of levitation to assist in initial elevation. The material is thought to be 'expulsion material from the gravity amplifier' of a galactic ship..."Wow... and David was selling debris from the '47 Missouri crash for only $100 per gram, which I thought was ridiculously cheap for specimens so rare as parts from a craft from another galaxy, not to mention facilitating contact with n-dimensional beings. After all, I've paid more for mere terrestrial emerald crystals... I just had to have some, but my show budget was already decimated from wasting so much of it on ordinary rocks from our own galaxy. Fortunately, David was holding a drawing for a nice sized chunk of CSD for which I promptly signed up.
I returned to the Congress Street Expo and David's booth later during the Show to check on the drawing results, but as my luck would have it, I didn't win it. However, upon seeing my obvious disappointment, David made me a facilitating deal on the very aesthetic, 7.2 gram piece of CSD shown at right, now in my own collection. If you've just got to have some Crash Site Debris of your own, you'll want to check out the specimens online at www.crashdebris.com...
In case the Men in Black come for it after monitoring this report, I've taken the precaution of temporarily burying my own piece of CSD somewhere out in a rather remote region of the Sonoran desert for now. I don't know about you, but personally I think Melody and David haven't yet recognized some of this material for what it really is.
CSD is not just debris from the destroyed gravity amplifier of a galactic class ship. I happen to be very sensitive to special rocks, and when I hold and meditate on my own piece of CSD, I clearly feel the reverberations of a distinct underlying, transcendental intelligence. My own theory is that a few very special pieces CSD are not debris from their ship at all, but remnants of the aliens themselves - a highly evolved species of sentient quartz which polymorphed to cristobalite and placed themselves in mineralogical stasis to survive the imminent destruction of their doomed craft.
