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
though my clinical skills and anthropological studies were of use, overall
there were, and continue to be, no roadmaps for dealing with xperiencers.
But over time, as I analytically and scientifically reflected upon the
commonalities among experiencers, I began to see important patterns in
I noticed that a number of changes were manifesting in these experiencers.
We had a group of them meeting monthly for years, and cross onversations
within these meetings further flushed out the data, as people reported
what was happening to them.
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,
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
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
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
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
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 tube-like environment.
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
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 things.
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
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
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
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
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 it is."
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
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
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 awonderful 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?
Richard: 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
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.
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 ransformational
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
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 warnings.
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,
recognition, 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
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."
