Añjali: The Real Story is Told
Charlie Wiser’s Three-Dollar Kit has done a remarkable job of chronicling the rise and fall of Añjali Schultz, who had once promised to lead an expedition into the Mojave Desert to meet aliens and bring back definitive proof. When the expedition did not work out, she apparently had no choice but to threaten to sue Wiser, only to have new developments further unmask the entire charade.
At first, Añjali announced an expedition to the tunnel that was to be the ultimate disclosure event. She warned that the majority of the alien council voted against humanity, so time was of the essence. She allegedly set out to form a team and started a Twitter poll to determine who should accompany them as community representatives. The poll included the late Stanton Friedman, but prominent skeptics were not invited to be part of it. In the interest of disclosure, even non-prominent skeptics such as this blog were not invited — even though we had experience in the desert and always enjoy the Mojave.
Unfortunately there was a complication. The aliens were in a tunnel owned by Wayne and Trisha, who refused permission for the expedition.
This blog solved the problem by suggesting that the aliens meet at the nearby Giant Rock, which is part of the Mojave that is very familiar with interplanetary visitors. I offered to rent the nearby Integraton for the day to give them more privacy. Añjali “liked” the idea but the aliens refused to budge. Apparently they settled in for the long haul.
Añjali blamed critics who had disturbed Wayne and Trisha. She settled on Charlie Wiser and gave her a notice of an impending suit. Charlie had been respectful towards Wayne so the threats made little sense. Apparently, however, it was clear that the most momentous event in history was being thwarted by an Australian mother.
The threatened lawsuit was just a distraction. As I advised Añjali through a Twitter post, courts do not exist to bring emotional satisfaction and she had no case. The only thing it would accomplish would be to make her liable for attorney fees. The threat reminded me of spam calls I sometimes get warning me of lawsuits or the IRS. As this was coming down, Sarah Adams – a new age healer – threatened Steve Cambrian with a lawsuit, warning that “you will be legally served soon enough.” It seems that low frequency legal actions are the preferred way to proceed when facing critics.
Anjali’s biggest mistake, however, was including Wayne and Trisha as two of her potential plaintiffs. They contacted Wiser and told the full story. Apparently they had met Añjali in a coffee shop. Wayne told her that UFOs had been seen around the area, but there was no mention of a tunnel and the subject was dropped.
Wayne and Trish invited Añjali to come by their house, along with another couple. They took a powerful cannabis oil that can hit people hard. An ambulance showed up around 5 pm, before dark, because Anjali’s daughter called for a welfare check. A friend picked up Añjali the next day. Nothing more was spoken about UFOs and Añjali picked up her car the next day.
They ignored Añjali and did not want any further contact. They finally spoke to her after the press conference and told her that nothing had happened. There were no aliens. A supposed portal was just a door. There was no missing time to have allowed her to meet the beings. There was no tunnel.
Añjali continued to assert that she had an alien experience in a tunnel. She warned Wayne that she had no idea who she was. They just wanted to be free of her. Wiser asks people to respect Wayne and Trish’s privacy and not to contact them.
At this point, the story might normally end. Certainly peoples suspicions were confirmed that drugs played a role in the experience. Charlie Wiser (along with Wayne and Trisha) did an excellent job. The nonevent is clear.
Still, will it be that easy? At this point the only thing that can give Añjali credibility is a press conference with the higher beings who allegedly guide her. If they told her that there was a tunnel or that she should lead an expedition, they either do not know more than anyone else, they or tricksters, or it is just the figment of her imagination.
The failure of prophecy rarely deters a prophet. Añjali has always used prophetic terms, warning people that they must transcend — those who do not do so will end up on a planet near Orion. She quickly abandoned the expedition and pivoted to announcing that the earth itself would end humanity in 2027. She took on a role of a new role issuing new age platitudes — either she would be meditating to transcend when the end came or claim credit when the earth is somehow saved.
Añjali elevates experience over reality. She maintains she is the only one who knows what happened, though Wayne and Trisha were there. Anybody can experience something. The question is whether an experience constitutes evidence of something real. In this case, Anjali’s story is even more muddled because she had undergone hypnosis with Barbara Lamb, a process that distorts perception and is a notoriously unreliable method to discover truth.
I suspect that she will continue to believe that she met aliens in a tunnel. It does not matter if the aliens never appear to us all and perhaps it’s better that way. Añjali is not the first to assume an earthly role after an encounter. Others have made transitions from alien contact claims to channeling messages from the space people.
She may be able to claim that Wayne and Trish had their memories wiped clean, like something out of a movie. We know it can happen because we have seen Men in Black. Perhaps a small following would accept that, just as they accepted her promises about an expedition without demanding at least some evidence. If so, as 2027 approaches, the lessons of Heaven’s Gate may have to be relearned. Let’s hope it does not come to that.
Wayne Speaks, Añjali Doesn’t
Wayne (Bryan) appeared on Steve Cambrian’s Truthseekers to confirm what happened when Añjali spent a few hours at his home. There were little surprises since he had already explained that there no aliens, no tunnels, and no missing time. Still, the human story might be what makes this interview important. Wayne told his story, but he remained sympathetic to Añjali.
The next day, Añjali appeared on the show. The interview did not last long. She left the show when Cambrian pressed her on the reality of her experiences. Undoubtedly he could have been more tactful or gentle in his approach. Añjali appears to believe in her experiences and that is not a divide that can be crossed very easily. Her statements ultimately stand or fall on their own and at that point in the interview she did not need to be pressed.
There was one piece of new information: when Añjali took a high potency cannabis oil she also used Adderall and other medications. I am not a doctor but some have stated that the combination could have led to hallucinations. That would have been interesting to pursue but the interview ended soon after.
The end result of the exchange was probably foreordained. Ultimately, reality is a divide. If one maintains a belief that defies all available evidence, there is little that can be said. Dialogue requires at least some common framework.
After the interview, Sarah Adams wrote, “You guys can’t speak to inter dimensional ETs because your frequency is too low. You want contact well do the work and stop crying about it. Contact happens when one elevates their energy field.”
That perhaps sums up the problems when experience is elevated above physical reality. If it requires an “elevated frequency” to know something, then what is the measure of truth that can distinguish between delusions, false spirits, or reality? Again, it effectively ends discussion. “You don’t know because you are not elevated” is not only presumptuous, it precludes a response.
In any event, this story was not defined by experience alone. Añjali did not simply announce a personal truth. She stated that she went into a tunnel and was determined to lead a scientific expedition to meet aliens — to provide proof to the world. That requires an actual tunnel. It requires standards of evidence. “Wayne” resolved that issue.
The story was as fun as the claims of Adamski or Bethrum, but for now it is interesting only as a cautionary tale. A failed expedition should cause her to question the assumptions that led to her rise — but that would require questioning herself and her role as a messenger. Perhaps it will help people to question the next Añjali. In any event, there is nothing to warrant further attention unless something changes.
