Our First Year

Welcome to the first Ammach newsletter, and many thanks go to all the wonderful people who have been in contact with us, it has indeed, been an interesting and fruitful year, which saw our first filmed meeting held on Friday evening, May 13th in Nottingham.

Our second meeting held in London, at the home of Belinda McKenzie, on Saturday August 27th was a daylong event, with filmed catch up comments about our progress, and introduction of interested parties invited to attend. In the afternoon, we filmed testimonials; this day long format worked well, giving everyone time to relax and share with each other without the camera.

We also had a small get together, Sunday December 18th in London, at Joanna Iatridou’s place, however, there was no room for cameras or interviews, and, for future times, we will ensure that filming ability is a factor at all meetings, as that is an important part of our work, and if we want to meet socially without cameras, we can. Our first anniversary was Monday January 23rd 2012, we may not have marked it, but in any event, we have our work as legacy so far, a testimony and witness to it.

Thank you to those who have participated in the creation of an important body of work that are the filmed one to one interviews and filmed testimonials of our meetings, and also for those who have shared experiences via email and phone. We appreciate and understand the courage that it takes to come forward and work with us, and we hope too, that in response, we have provided a safe, sympathetic environment, supporting what you have to say in a professional, friendly way, that best represents you and the information that has come from the experiences. The comments and gratitude that people have expressed in the positive far outweighs the usual sceptic, thoughtless and negative, these latter are to be expected and part of the life play. The beneficial impact our/your work is having on the larger community is gratifying, and whilst we are focussing on the UK, we have had contact from other countries wanting to share their stories, validating some of the Ammach Interviewees, and finding solace in what we have presented, these have come from the U.S., Canada, Australia, South Korea, Czech Republic and France.

The Interviewees: By December 2011, Ammach had filmed and uploaded to YouTube, the following 1-1 interviews; (9 in total), generally in 2 x 2 hour sessions; Cathi Morgan, Amy Miller, Simon Parkes, (plus a discussion with Win Keech, and a therapy session with Simon), Marie Kayali, Joanna Iatridou, Sacha Christie, Reshad Nawoor, Jeff Scott and our last of 2011, Tony Topping. The meeting contributions by Experiencers added to the developing field of information, as we seek to better understand what these interactions mean for humanity, and why some are subject to these experiences, whilst others are not, and where this is taking human and planetary evolution.

Technical Challenges:

These have been on going and we lost nearly all of the early edits due to two hard drives going down, and a seemingly endless stream of other hitches and glitches that put the production of material way behind, and of course folks, we are not funded, so all that we do is done in our own time, and when we can, and Miles has made some truly herculean efforts to ensure that the latest material was ‘out there’ before we turned another year, and spent early January re-doing the lost work, which all takes a whole lot of time, but where there is Guinness, there is hope!!

DNA Testing: One or two of our Experiencers said they would be happy to have a DNA test, and one person in particular has reason to believe that non-human DNA has already been found when they had a test done some years ago, and has tried to access their medical records, with little result, which I told them would be a likely outcome, however, they want to retest to find out for certain, and this would surely be not the smoking gun, but the gun….I was in touch with Lloyd Pye (www.starchildproject.com) and he was very helpful, with his now fairly extensive knowledge of DNA testing for the starchild skull.

Lloyds email is interesting, and a copy of what he wrote is below:

Joanne:

It really doesn’t take much money or effort to see if a living person is “unusual.” All they need is a recovery of their mitochondrial DNA. Don’t bother with nuclear, which is extensive and expensive. Mitochondrial is enough, and it’s only 16,569 base pairs per mitochondrion.

Just find a local DNA analysis lab and ask what the cost would be for a mitochondrial DNA analysis. Shouldn’t be much. That will tell right away if they are normal or abnormal. Normal humans have a maximum of 120 differences or mutations in those 16,569 base pairs. Anything less than that is normal. Anything well over, it is abnormal.

If you want a small education on this, please read the final 50 pages of the complimentary copy of the Starchild Essentials eBook attached. That should educate you and your friend about what mtDNA analysis is all about. Okay?

Lloyd

Once again, we are not funded and don’t have the ability to pay for this at the moment, however we have found a lab that can do the testing, and this is the information they sent by email:

Thanks for your inquiry through our website.

Ian (D. Withers)

We can run a single mtDNA HVR 1 & 2,

Cost: UK£140 + VAT

TAT: Approx. 7/10 days

The information below may not be specifically relevant, but I include it out of interest.

Costs for Mitochondrial DNA (Based on 2 Sisters) currently cost UK Pounds 250 + VAT – Additional Subjects £75 + VAT. We can attend at most addresses for an additional £50 + VAT, or you can visit our nearest local representatives premises to provide the Samples (swabs)

We will need from you at the time of the appointment:

a) Positive ID – Passport or Drivers Licence or similar for each Party to be tested.

b) Buccal Swab (Inner mouth swab) for each Party which our Sampler will take.

We then send these to the Lab for processing and comparative testing.

This takes approx. 7/10 working days; we will call you with the result as soon as we hear from the Lab. The Lab will then send the Notarised Result Report from the Scientist who undertook the Lab work direct to your address. Please do let us know, or if anyone does any other research and finds a lab willing to work with us. We will report any findings we make.

In the pipeline: We have some really wonderful material to disseminate, especially from the emails, and that is a task, which we hope to do for inclusion of The Ammach Files, and as an audio, and the texts will eventually go on the website, which is a work in progress. We are delighted to welcome Katherine McLoughlin, a Canadian Experiencer, aboard, she had kindly offered to help write and orchestrate getting the Ammach Files together. If anyone feels they would like to bring their area of expertise or interest to the work we are doing, please do let us know.

We were contacted by a lecturer from Oxford University, Dr Young-hae Chi, (pictured with Miles on the left), who is researching material for his book which will be a first for South Korea, on the subject of the burgeoning environmental crisis and the ramping up in frequency of ‘alien abduction,’ he deduces that this is certainly not any kind of coincidence. Dr Chi met one or two people at our December meeting, and will be invited to our next gathering.

The Czech Republic, Exopolitics group via Karel Rasin sent in some questions for Simon Parkes, which we will be sharing in due course, we look forward to linking with them in future times, and sharing cross country research.

Press: Joanne did a brief interview with a local paper called the Ripley and Heanor News, based in Ripley, Derbyshire, Dec 27th, an article by Paul Lynch covers a variety of subjects, headed by reports of local Panther sightings. He had filed an FOIA about sightings of UFOs in that area, and found two were deemed to be unknowns, so Ammach gets a mention, and but he hopes to do a feature article in the new year.

Scroll down the page for Ammach, and although it was not too bad a piece, not only did they manage to spell my name incorrectly, they didn’t get everything right, which is par for the course, in this media format!

I would ask everyone who is interested in this conference, whether they are attending/speaking/participating or not, to please contact your local paper/radio college, University and let them know about this event, call in to your radio station, let them know, and if they need an interview with us, we will arrange that. Get a letter, article or interview with your local paper yourself, let them know this is a unique event in the UK.

Conference: Joanne is now working on the foundations of the first Ammach Conference whose overarching title will be Disclosure through Exposure, an Experiencer’s Perspective, which will be filmed.

Where? The conference will take place in Robin Hood country, Nottingham, a city centre location, with room for 500+ delegates, at:
