Jack Sarfatti - his ideas about the Tic Tac came from "a phone call from an alien"


For some time now, U.S. physicist Jack Sarfatti has been speaking out about his thoughts on the 2004 USS Nimitz encounters, with what has come to be known as the "Tic Tac" UAP. In short Sarfatti postulates that there is:

 "...evidence of extremely low power warp drive with time-travel-to-past capability in a meta-material fuselage controlled by a conscious AI post-quantum computer."

Who is Jack Sarfatti?

According to his LinkedIn page, Sarfatti was born 14 September 1939.  He received a BA in Physics from Cornell University (1956-1960); an M. S.  in Physics from University of California, San Diego (1965-1968); and a PhD in theoretical and mathematical physics from the University of California, Riverside (1968-1969.)

Career wise, the LinkedIn account tells us:

* Sep 1967 - Jun 1973, Assistant Professor of Physics, San Diego State

* Sep 1971 - Nov 1987, US Navy PACE -Instructor - teaching math to young sailors and marines onboard fighting ships at sea

* Jan 1980 - Dec 1986. Science advisor to Lawry Chickering Institute for Contemporary Studies - ISB. Helped formulate the Strategic Defense Initiative behind the scenes for Paul Nitze, Cap Weinberger and POTUS

* Jan 1996 - Present, CEO Sarfatti Group/ Internet Science Education Project.

His academic work

He has published numerous scientific articles, particularly in the areas of consciousness; quantum physics and astronomy. A sample of his work includes:

* "Toward a unified field theory of gravitation and strong interactions" Foundations of Physics, Vol. 5, 301-307. 1975

* "The Physical Roots of Consciousness" in Mishlove, J. "The Roots of Consciousness." Random House, 1975

* "Can the electroweak unified force be used to neutralize nuclear weapons?" Defense Analysis, Vol. 2 Issue 1. pp49-51. 1986

* "Dark Energy and Dark Matter from the same Vacuum condensate"  APS April Meeting 2003, B9. 012, 2003

* "Retro-Causal Holographic Dark Energy Coherent Vacuum Super-Solid Tetrad Emergent Gravity"  Cal Tech APS 10/30/10

* "Bohm Pilot Wave Post Quantum Theory" Retro causality workshop, The Embassy, 2017

Sarfatti has also published a number of books, including:

 * 1974 "Space Time and Beyond" by Bob Tober, in conversation with physicists Jack Sarfatti and Fred Alan Wolf.

* 2002. "Space Time and beyond 11"

* 2002. "Destiny Matrix"

* 2005 "Super Cosmos"

* 2020 "Sarfatti Lectures in Physics Volume One: The Principles of Metric Engineering Low Energy Low Speed Warp Drive"

His personal website, features information on physics, cosmology, advanced propulsion, meta materials, quantum computing; a section headed "UFO sightings map;" and a weird desk area which provides information about Bigfoot, UFOs, sea monsters etc. His own blog includes pieces on a wide range of subjects including Robert Bigelow; quantum gravity, interviews with Luis Elizondo; much about UAP physics and his own theories;  

Where do his views originate?

I took a look back in the diaries of Jacques Vallee for the early history of where Sarfatti's ideas originated. There was an interesting diary entry in "Forbidden Science: Volume Three" (pp98-99) dated 27 July 1982:

"Walking through North Beach I passed Cafe Trieste where Jack Sarfatti was engaged in some passionate argument. He saw me and ran to catch me. So we ended up at Cafe Puccini, where I ordered a prosciutto sandwich and a cup of coffee , and listened to his theories.

Sarfatti's ideas are full of color, short on proofs. he 'confided' to me, as he does to everyone within earshot, that people close to Reagan, Meese and Caspar Weinberger support him; he hints he is close to Bechtel.

The wife of the American ambassador in Paris keeps calling him at Cafe Trieste and political pundit Bill Buckley listens to him. It is impossible to separate the real from the imaginary in all this.

Jack's life is a tapestry of stunning coincidences and romantic episodes. It is undeniable that he was a child prodigy. In 1953, age 15 (we are the same age) he was sitting in the Brooklyn library reading a math book on switching functions when he received a phone call from a mechanical voice that plunged him into a quasi hypnotic state. He only remembers one phone call but his mother states there was a series of them, always from the same bizarre voice.

The phone calls changed his life, he said. They led him to theorize about the energy of the vacuum and faster-than-light propulsion . He cites all the right authors, such as Coxeter, whose works I recently read. And he is certainly right when he says Einstein's theory is only a special case of a wider physics."

There are several other Vallee diary entries which speak of Sarfatti. In anotherr one, dated 22 September 1997, when alluding to the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS) Vallee writes:

"You chaps are obviously part of the Others predicted to me in 1952 by a sort of conscious computer and spacecraft from the future that we will now attempt to build."

FATE magazine article 

In an April 2006 article by Preston Dennett, in "FATE" magazine we learn:

"In 1952 and 1953, when I was about 12 or 13 years old, I received a phone which a mechanical sounding voice said it was a computer on board a flying saucer. They wanted to teach me something and would I be willing? This was my free choice. Would I be willing to be taught - to communicate with them? I remember a shiver going up my spine, because i said, 'Hey man, this is real.' Of course, I was a kid...but I said yes."

Sarfatti was impressed. he ran and got his friends, and they gathered together in his bedroom, awaiting the upcoming promised contact. Unfortunately, nothing occurred, and Sarfatti assumed at first that it was just a clever practical joke.

At this point, his memory of the event strangely ends. But according to Sarfatti's mother, the first phone call was followed by a series of similar phone calls - each giving Sarftatti information that would leave him forever changed. Says Sarfatti, 'My mother remembers this experience very well. It turns out that I had forgotten most of it. This was really something that occurred over several weeks..."

Here is another take on this series of phone calls:

"I was reading a book on computer switching circuits at home when the phone rang. I answered it and heard a strange sequence of clunking mechanical sounds. Then a metallic sounding voice comes on the line. A cold mechanical voice is the only way I can describe it. It gives a long series of numbers that I did not understand and then calls me 'Jack' and says it's a 'conscious computer onboard a spacecraft.' It may have said it was from the future, but I am not sure. However, that was the implication of what it said. Anyway, it says I've been selected to be one of '400 young receptive minds' to be part of a special project but that I must make the choice myself. The voice on the phone told me that I would begin to meet the others I was to work with in twenty years. I was scared and everything in me screamed to say NO! and hang up. I felt a strong jolt of electricity go up my spine to the base of my skull and I heard myself say YES. I was terrified and fascinated. The voice said 'Good, go out on your fire escape and we will send a ship to pick you up in ten minutes.' When I hung up I ran like a bat out of hell and found my friend Winky, who is now a homicide detective in Brooklyn. We, and a few other kids, went back to my apartment to wait for the flying saucer but it never came."

This then, was the beginning of Sarfatti's introduction to the topic. 


  1. Sarfatti is implying the "tic tac" is a time traveling ship sent from the future. The impression is it is being sent into our past to affect our time line. The lack of interaction with our military would indicate that there is an effort to avoid a "time slip" which could change the events of Earth's future.

    1. lack of interaction, aside from politely maneuvering in front of our military's most advanced aircraft carrier for a time sufficient to analyze it, you mean?

  2. Sarfatti was also a good friend of Robert Anton Wilson...
