Jacques F. Vallee has for a long time been regarded as one of the most senior and respected investigators of unidentified aerial phenomena. Through the years, he has worked on reports of UFOs from across the globe and has worked for the French and American governments on related projects.

Vallee went to Sorbonne where he studied mathematics before he proceeded to Lille University where he got his master’s of science in astrophysics. He would then begin his career working at the Paris Observatory of the French Space Committee as an astronomer.
In 1962, he got employed at the Austin-based University of Texas as an astronomer. It was there that he was involved in the development of a detailed map of Mars for NASA using computers. He would then get his doctorate in artificial intelligence and moved to Northwestern University where he worked with Dr. J. Allen Hynek.

The latter was the leading voice on Project Blue Book as a scientific consultant on UFOs for the United States Air Force. Jacques worked on Project Blue Book alongside Hynek to develop the first interactive UFO observations database.
During the late 1960s, he began exploring commonalities between folklore, the paranormal, and UFOs which he detailed in the work “Passport to Magonia.”

During his early professional days, he moved from Paris to Austin and then to California. In the US, Jacques Vallee worked management jobs with RCA and Shell and was responsible for implementing Arpanet’s Network Information Center.

In the 1970s, he was one of the Principal investigators of DARPA and was lead in the team that built the first software collaboration system in the world. The system then ran on Arpanet, which was an early prototype of the modern internet.
When Jacques later joined the Institute for the Future and the Stanford Research Institute, he made friends with Kit Green, Russell Targ, and Hal Puthoff. During this time, he was a consultant on SRI’s classified remote viewing programs the most prominent of which was the “Stargate Project.”

In 1978, Vallee was invited to a panel of experts that included government and military officials and NASA astronauts Dr. J. Allen Hynek and Gordon Cooper. The team came up with a UFO research plan that they presented to the UN.
During the early 2000s, Valle was involved in the co-founding of one of the most important venture capital firms in Silicon valley. He was also a part of the advisory board that conducted private research for AATIP, the de-classified UFO program.

Vallee is currently working at Documatica Financial where he is a principal and diversified investor. He is passionate about technology startups in information management, medical equipment, and space development.
Working from Silicon Valley, he has partnered and founded more than five venture funds including Red Planet Capital by NASA. Jacques has also published a ton of textbooks on computer networking and throughout his life has maintained an interest in UFOs.
His works have proved very popular and have been translated into many languages across the world. In fact, he was the real-life model for the lead in “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” the film. He also serves on the French NES, the expert committee that studies UFO reports.

The recipient of the Jules Verne Prize for science fiction currently makes his home between Paris and San Francisco.

“Passport to Magonia” by Jacques F. Vallee is very much like “Operation Trojan Horse” by John Keel, even though it was published a year earlier. This work is an attempt at synthesizing all UFO reports from prehistory, through the middle ages and up to the present day.
The author rallies against the trend of most UFO researchers to throw out what they categorize as silly stories as they only consider experiences that are in line with the nuts and bolts in spaceship stories.

The author does make a strong case for UFOs as a contemporary update on myths that have been there in all cultures across history. Jacques focuses on indo-European cultural threads as he touches on Eastern, African, Native American, and Mesoamerican mythological sources.
Vallee writes what is a brilliant tapestry of shared experiences across millennia and continents. He has a dispassionate eye as a scientist as he picks up the concept of UFOs and explores it as mythology.
He also draws parallels between religious narratives, fairy myths, gnomic myths, and millennia-old tribal legends of aliens from beneath the Earth or from the stars.

All the while, he never loses sight of the fact that the phenomenon can also be manifested physically with physical trace evidence photographic evidence, and millions of witness testimony.

Jacques F. Vallee’s work “Dimensions: A Casebook of Alien Contact” lays out what is a convincing case about what has been around for millennia.
The author asserts that the phenomena of gnomes and fairy folk tales that were documented in Europe hundreds of years ago and even gods, demons, and angels share uncanny patterns and traits with other folklore and myths from other cultures across the world.
The identical narratives and constant patterns suggest that they are likely to be real, but it is very unlikely that they are physical extraterrestrial creatures from another dimension.

According to the author, people have misunderstood the true nature of UFOs and perhaps even misdirected others, so as to generate new religions and folklore that is more compatible with current levels of scientific understanding.
Vallee also theorizes to assert that UFO phenomena may be a type of multidimensional phenomenon interested in asserting their influence on human culture, even though their reasons for doing so may be unknown.

Still, he never has any strong opinions on whether UFOs are an actual species with their own civilization, some type of psychokinetic effect on human consciousness, or a sophisticated machine.

“Messengers of Deception” by Jacques F. Vallee is a work in which the author attempts to apply the scientific method unlike the true believers or the skeptics.

As an original thinker, Vallee is one of the biggest believers in the UFO phenomenon. Nonetheless, he remains skeptical of the ET hypothesis as he prefers the interdimensional hypothesis, which he asserts is the more rational explanation.
In this work, Jacques discusses shadowy intelligence agencies and UFO cults that could be manipulating individuals within the cults and the phenomenon itself.

Jacques discusses Bonnie Nettles and Marshall Applewhite who is also known as Do and Ti/Bo and Peep, and the Order of Melchizedek, and Claude Vorilhon who is also known as Rael.

The writer is dismissive of the authoritarian nature of their cults and their alleged contact with extraterrestrial beings and phenomena. Applewhite would, later on, be the leader of the Heavengate cult that committed mass suicide under his watch.
Despite everything, Vallee encourages experts to continue studying UFO phenomena and always keep an open mind on what may be causing such happenings.
