with Richard J Boylan, Ph.D.
By Paula Peterson
The offspring of "experiencers - those who have been taken or
influenced in some way by extraterrestrials - have a unique and
crucial role to play in our world.
As a researcher, behavioral scientist, anthropologist, author, and emeritus university associate professor, Dr. Richard Boylan paves the way in providing a nurturing and exceptional educational environment for these extraordinarily gifted children.
Paula: How did you first begin to work with these special children?
Richard: In 1989, I began working with experiencers - people who
have been contacted - as part of my clinical practice. By 1992,
quite a number had crossed my door, many of whom were parents who
talked about the unusualness of their children. In some cases, the
parents actually brought their children with them. For the most
part, they wanted to get some clarity about what was going on.
Even though my clinical skills and anthropological studies were of use, overall there were, and continue to be, no roadmaps for dealing with experiencers. But over time, as I analytically and scientifically reflected upon the commonalities among experiencers, I began to see important patterns in the data.
I noticed that a number of changes were manifesting in these experiencers. We had a group of them meeting monthly for years, and cross conversations within these meetings further flushed out the data, as people reported what was happening to them.
Paula: In all your studies and interactions with the experiencers, what were the changes that most commonly manifested in their lives?
Richard: One of the dominant patterns that began to emerge was a strong increase in ESP and the development of psychic gifts of various kinds. In fact, I would say in general that experiencers are transformed by their contacts - physically, psychologically, mentally, para-psychologcically, and spiritually.
Paula: There is still much confusion, disbelief - even fear - among the general public regarding contact with Star Visitors. Can you comment on this?
Richard: In that regard, I just came back from a trip to Rome,
where I had a very productive dialogue with Monsignor Balducci of
the Vatican regarding Star Visitors. It's interesting that we have
this Italian monsignor in his seventies - definitely old school in
every other way - who is the most progressive guy in the Vatican
on the subject of visitors from other worlds. He has given
national television interviews and written articles, as well as
educating his fellow priests on the subject, using biblical
references as support for UFO and Star Visitor reality.
As Monsignor Balducci confirms, a careful and open-minded reading of Church documents actually shows that the Ancients were well aware of these visitors. And he clearly states that the Star Visitors are good guys and nothing to be afraid of.
(See Ufology and Theological Clarifications: the entire text of a groundbreaking document given to Dr. Boylan by Monsignor Balducci regarding the church's position about the existence of the Star Visitors.)
Paula: Along those lines, there seems to be a huge amount of reference material that indicates that humans have not only been contacted all along but also genetically altered by Star Visitors.
Richard: I will put it into a brief historical summary.
Approximately 350,000 years ago, Star Visitors genetically engineered primates in order to create homo sapiens, a species which is not related to Neanderthal man or to any of the more primitive species that have been dug up.
So we are a hybrid race. And the large braincase and high intelligence is due to cross-splicing of a higher order of extraterrestrial genetic material.
Paula: Does that have anything to do with the missing link? the leap from Neanderthal to Cro Magnon?
Richard: Yes. There is a missing link because there is an absolute
discontinuity between primitive species and homo sapiens.
Traditional archeologists keep trying to find a fairly upright
individual who is a little more advanced than Neanderthal man but
not quite as advanced as homo sapiens, but they cannot find this
missing link because there is none. There was no evolutionary
curve. Instead, around 350,000 years ago, there was a sudden
emergence in Africaof a whole race of homo sapiens. And that is
where the footprints stop. There is no preceding species to
But as we all know - and what has become all too obvious to the Star Visitors - after more than three hundred millennia of having a go with these brains, and even though we've done some impressive creations of civilization, we still retain rather unfortunate tendencies toward jealousy, competitiveness, and resolving matters by grabbing a club and beating the other person over the head. In that way, we're not much better than our primitive ancestors and other predators in the Serengeti.
Paula: Are the Star Kids different from the "experiencers"? Please
tell us more about them.
Richard: The kids being born in the last eight to ten years are
way ahead of the average human, and even way ahead of the average
experiencer. They have striking abilities, and their average
developmental curve in many cases is rapid: they are lifting their
heads up, talking, walking, reading, and writing a year or two
earlier, or more, than their age-mates.
They demonstrate telepathy at a very young age, and in some cases, they are influencing their environment mentally, along with showing other abilities that normal humans don't have (for characteristics of Star Kids, see the sidebar, Star Seeds and Star Kids).
Paula: How do they come to be born this way?
Richard: After compiling all the information from many
experiencers, it seems that reproductive material - sperm or
ovum - is borrowed from humans, altered by the Star Visitors, and
then put back.
The inference is that they've done a further upgrade in human genetics so that the kids born later to these parents are way advanced. Let's say hypothetically that if the evolutionary scale of homo sapiens is rated at 1.0, these kids are at 7.0.
Upgrading the human condition in this manner appears to be one of the ways in which Star Visitors are helping to create a more advanced version of humanity that will have the virtues and strengths that tend to be absent in the average human at this time.
As marriage, interbreeding - even blood donations - carry forth advanced DNA and ripple out into the general human genome for the next few generations, eventually all of humankind will be functioning at a more advanced level.
Paula: Do the parents typically remember the intervention of Star Visitors prior to their children's being born?
Richard: In many cases, the parents remember these events clearly.
In other circumstances, they have only a hazy awareness of strange
things going on in the house, or a UFO flying over their car,
followed by a loss of time.
If there is a missing chunk of time, then we can go back using hypnosis and retrieve the missing parts. When pieces fall into place, people have a much more comprehensive sense of what is going on.
Paula: Are some of these hybrid offspring being born off-planet because they cannot live here on Earth?
Richard: Generally, there are two versions of genetic work being
done. One version involves upgrading humans to the hypothetical
7.0. In the other version, human genes are spliced to a basically
extraterrestrial genome that is usually grown in vitro - in a test
The test-tube children tend to look much more extraterrestrial than human. They would never pass for human in the way Star Kids do. They have more of the extraterrestrial attributes, but enough of the human qualities to restore some of the emotional range and heart consciousness that some star civilizations lost when they manipulated their own genetic evolution.
In the case of extraterrestrial children developed in vitro, those kids are often raised off world or onboard the large ships that are semi-permanent homes for various colonies. Many experiencers have been taken aboard such ships to interact with one or more of these children, and in many cases they are given the telepathic message that this is their own child. These experiencers treasure the short time they have onboard to nurture and love them.
Paula: Do parents often have much greater challenges in raising Star Kids than in raising other children? The Star Kids I've encountered are often quite energetic and seem to be quite a handful in some cases.
Richard: My grandson is a case in point. He is going to a school
in central California that specializes only in gifted children.
Even there, he is bored. Star Kids - and this also holds true for
highly intelligent humans in general - are restless because they
are processing information so fast that the pace most humans plod
along at is painfully slow for them. They just get bored,
restless, fidgety, agitated, and want to move on quickly to other
Unfortunately, they often get slapped with labels like Attention Deficit Disorder and Hyperactivity. That really isn't fair, because they are not loaded with neurological anomalies, as are true ADHD kids. In truth, they're just a square peg in a round hole, and they often have a rough time of it.
Also, that sense of being different makes it tough. Kids always want to blend in with other kids and be accepted. However, because of the way they think and behave and the different way they see things, they get labeled by the other kids, and this can make it harder for them to make friends.
You can imagine that when Star Kids reach puberty and adolescence, unless they have help, it can be an extremely challenging time for them. Without this help, they can become isolated and feel like misfits in society, even though they are extraordinarily gifted.
Paula: Since these special kids are increasing in numbers, there must be some kind of help that will be available for them - although I don't know what to call it.
Richard: I'll tell you what to call it: It's called the Star Kids
Project©. It's quite ambitious, and I've developed a ten-year plan
that includes multiple Star Kids Workshops across the United
States and in strategic regions of Canada, Europe, Mexico, and
Turkey. Workshops in the United States are already underway.
This plan also includes establishing a Star Kids residential school, a mentor program, and a graduate curriculum, as well as training for faculty.
Paula: Wow - it sounds wonderful! What will the Star Kids Project offer?
Richard: In the workshops, we create a special place for grade
school kids, adolescents, young adults, and those who are
basically grown-up Star Kids. Of course, parents and family are
welcome, since it's important that family members understand these
special kids so that they can assist in their development rather
than be at loose ends.
The curriculum will include revisionist history - of which I gave you just a tiny slice a moment ago - along with a different kind of physics - electro-gravitic, magnetic-gravitic, antigravity, and so forth - that transcends the speed of light.
In nearly every one of the subjects that are traditionally taught to young people, a revising, upgrading, and cosmic overlay will take place. These kids need a foundation where they don't have to unlearn what they were previously taught and then relearn it at a later time. If these kids can get it right from the beginning and then build on that knowledge, with that kind of foundation they are really going to soar as they mature.
Paula: What do the Star Kids learn in your workshop weekends?
Richard: We cover why they are the way they are, where they come
from, who the Star Visitors are, and so forth. We spend a lot of
time on the various abilities and differences of Star Kids and
Star Seeds - like different body temperatures, and what that
means. Or why they have cross-species communication, telepathy,
other sensitivities, and so on.
We practice remote viewing and other skills that use the mind, using tools like dowsing rods, pendulums, and a variety of other strategies to amplify the power of the mind and practice with it. And we discuss using these abilities for doing social good and not as a way to show off.
Paula: Do you find that these children are more sensitive?
Richard: Yes, they are very sensitive, and transparent - meaning
that what they are thinking and feeling on the inside shows on the
outside. They do not abide by social pretense. They "tell it like
These attributes make sense in a mental-telepathic world, and are obviously of cultural value among Star Visitors, since there is not much to hide in an empathic, shared world. All of the ESP gifts, for example, represent either sending out energy or receiving energy, and being highly attuned to that.
For a Star Kid or Star Seed, it's not easy to set up barriers to such sensitivity or to tune it down. It's basically part of how they are made. As a result, many of these kids are overwhelmed in noisy and violent environments. They just run away and hide in a closet. Or if someone is being petty or cruel in a social setting, these sensitive people just want to melt away, because they can feel it on an energy level and it just grates on them. They don't seem to have the thick skin that many 1.0 humans cultivate and seem to take pride in. But neither do they seem particularly interested in having it.
I am optimistic that things will get better on Earth so Star Kids don't have to deal with such harsh vibes. Actually, many of them dedicate themselves to careers that involve making the world a better place for all.
Paula: Would we notice anything different about being in the presence of a Star Kid, even without knowing about these other abilities?
Richard: Yes. I like to say that I can spot a Star Kid or a Star
Seed from across a crowded room by the energy that emanates from
them, the way their eyes look, the way they talk, the way they
carry themselves, and the way they relate.
What's fascinating is that the latest batch of Star Kids coming in now - the very little kids still in baby strollers - are cranked up even higher than the older ones. It will be amazing to see what they're going to be like when they grow up, because they will blow the current Star Seeds right out of the water.
Star Kids are really remarkable young people. And as our society becomes more and more populated with them, it's going to be a wonderful place to live. Many of the problems that have plagued our societies in the past will melt away as this new crop of children grows up to achieve positions of influence and become the new leaders in our world.
Paula: Is that what inspires you the most about working with these kids, that they represent a better future for all of us?
Boylan: Oh, yes. They are the future. If I can help as many as
possible get properly launched, it will greatly benefit the
societies that they're going to help shape as they come of age.
Many of these special kids are now only a couple of years away from adult lives and careers that will include positions of great responsibility and increasing influence. Even some of the adult Star Seeds that I have worked with are moving into positions of leadership and initiative. The work that I'm doing is about building a better future with the kind of people who are going to be making a lot of that future come about.
Paula: In what ways can we be of help if we want to get involved?
Richard: Good wishes and enthusiasm are always appreciated.
However, you have to know what you're dealing with if you want to
get involved. So most importantly, the first step is for people to
get educated about the topic.
Secondly, in my opinion, it really takes a Star Seed adult - with an insider perspective, awareness, and experience - to help a Star Kid.
People can certainly help with contributions, too. And they can help to get the word out so that more parents are aware and will start looking to see if they happen to have a Star Kid. For parents who are struggling with clearly extraordinary kids and don't have the faintest idea how they got to be that way, the need for understanding is imperative.
I want to decode the puzzle, take away the mystery, and have them achieve acceptance as well as an understanding of why their children are so different. Once they realize that it's all okay, then they can become the best possible parents they can be.
Getting their kids connected with other kids and adults who have the same background and who can help them find their way is the goal of the Star Kid Project. It serves in creating an environment that helps these kids move ahead fast instead of thrashing about in trying to make sense of a world that isn't built for them.
I wish your readers could be at one of these weekend workshops. There is a loving, wise, and aware energy that emanates from so many people in a room where people are sharing in this way. It's a heart consciousness experience and a whole new world.
Paula: What are you seeing for the near future?
Richard: Star Visitors have said that this evolutionary stage of
humanity is much like that of a gangly, awkward adolescent. We're
leaving childhood behind, but we haven't arrived at full adulthood
yet. I'm convinced that these Star Kids are here to help with this
transformational process and move us all forward faster.
So I operate from a sense of severe time urgency. And practically every Star Kid and Star Seed I work with, to a greater or lesser degree, operates in the same manner.
Personally, I am persuaded by the Native American and other indigenous people's oral traditions which say that all their prophecies have come true regarding the signs that have appeared right before there is a mass return of the Star Nations.
The Mayan Calendar states that by the end of the year 2012, the old ways will have ended and a whole new culture and society will have clearly emerged.
We are now peaking as a materialistic civilization and presently immersed in what Native Americans call the Fourth World. By 2012, the Fifth World will be coming in.
So we don't have that much more time before the Fourth World will be rapidly fazing out and the Fifth World will be obviously manifesting. But there also will be a lot of blood, sweat, and tears before that happens. Prophecy states that there will likely be upheavals in the very near future, beginning as early as May. It will be a time of great shaking up - literally and figuratively - in and of society and our culture. It will be a time of great testing - but also a time of great opportunity.
Paula: How can people best face these coming times?
Richard: Those who can accept the Star Visitors and can attune to
these matters, as well as those who have some psychic gifts and
are open minded, will be in a much better place than those who
think this is all a bunch of hogwash and ignore the advice and the
It is also increasingly important for people to practice greater discernment: to be able to separate the truth from the dis-information. As people practice that kind of discernment, they will move more toward being the kind of folks who are in tune with real reality that includes the Star Visitors and Star Seeds that are among us.
You never know when you're going to stumble across a closet Star Kid or Star Seed. There are a lot more out there than you think: an estimated two-million in the United States, and proportionately as many in the rest of the world. Even those who seem to be buried in some of the most hide-bound traditional cultural settings are really quite "with it." So, I encourage people to have an open mind.
Once this thing stops being ridiculed and denied by the government, and once people feel safe and more free to speak openly about their truth, people everywhere are going to be astounded by the number of folks who step forward and say, "I'm one of them."
Paula: This has been a wonderful and uplifting discussion. We're really grateful for the pioneering work that you are doing with these kids and with the adults as well.
Richard: It's heart-centered work with a heart-centered community.
So it's work I'm glad to do. Working with these special people is
like having a family, so it's really like helping out a cousin.
That's the beauty of this work.
In the same way, the Fifth World society that we're building will be much like a large extended family. That's the feeling we get in the Star Kid weekend workshops. Everyone feels like family at the end. And you can imagine what a lovely society it's going to be when we all learn to live this way with each other.
Star Seeds and Star Kids
According to Dr. Boylan, "A Star Seed is an adult; a Star Kid is a child. A Star Seed/Star Kid may be defined as an adult/child with both human and extraterrestrial origin. The extraterrestrial contribution may come from reproductive material, from genetic engineering, from biomedical technology, and from telepathic consciousness linking, as well as from directed incarnation of a Star Visitor into a human body."
Some of the signs of a Star Kid, as extrapolated from Dr. Boylan's website, are as follows:
Paranormal abilities. This includes telekineses (ability to move objects with the mind), teleportation (moving one's body in space), levitation, precognition, telephathy, clairvoyance, invisibility, ability to expand or dilate time, and so on. They also are able to influence and to heal others, mentally or through the use of pranic energy.
Striking appearance. They tend to have an appealing, dynamic appearance, a knowing gaze, and a mature look, and in adulthood may appear much younger than their years.
Biophysical changes. These include increased cranial size, lower body temperature, and immunity to common childhood diseases, including colds and flu.
Shared consciousness. This includes spiritual insight, the ability
to link with other Star Kids and with Source Consciousness, and
the ability to download information from off-planet.
Also, Dr. Boylan says, "They most often are imbued with a missionary zeal to make people wake up to their highest and best potential. These Star Kids also want to change the world for the better, be it by working for peace, spreading compassion and kind deeds, working to heal the Earth's pollution injuries, or telling people about a larger family we have out among the stars."
