I have long thought that IF an alien race were to visit Earth, they might not contact us in a “Day The Earth Stood Still” scenario.
Granted I am thinking in modern terms and figuring they would just tap into the internet, or other digital media. The last thing we need is cross contamination with an alien species leading to either wiping us out, or wiping them out. There is a case going back to the 1950s that claims something along these lines. I learned of The Ummites through Tony Morrill of Forteania Blogspot. While his site has been inactive for a while, he promises to get back to it soon. In the mean time he posts updates about what he has been reading and doing on his Facebook Page.
For an introduction to the Ummites, check out this video.

Ummites? What’s that?
To better understand the story behind the Ummite letters (pronounced Oummites), some background is needed.
The Ummites claim to have landed on Earth in March 1950, in the area of Digne. Three crafts brought a crew from the planet UMMO that set up a base (see the summary in the book by J-P PETIT), probably on the Peak of Blache, between Digne and La Javie, in the south of France. They spent a certain time analysing our habits, walked around Paris (and undoubtedly elsewhere), and avoided drawing attention to themselves. In 1965, Mr. Fernando SESMA, the organiser of a slightly esoteric Spanish “association ” which claimed to be in contact with other extraterrestrials, begins receiving letters. Other recipients also receive some. Contact is lost in 1970, then is regained in 1987, and continues until 1993 (at least, we do not have letters possibly sent outside these periods) with other recipients, particularly in France. We currently have approximately 200 to 300 pages of texts written by the Ummites but it is possible that many other letters exist. In a 1988 letter, reference is made to the existence of 3,850 pages, copies of which having been sent to several individuals represent the equivalent of 160,000 pages!
In these letters, more than 400 words, mathematical algorithms, algebraic relations, and a great number of symbols were used by the Ummites who were kind enough to give the translation of certain terms. You will find the translations in this compilation. Unfortunately, without the knowledge of Ummite grammar or verbs (if they exist in their language), it is currently impossible to provide a comprehensive linguistic analysis.
Why was this work of compilation and editing done? We realized how difficult it would be to fully understand Ummite thought and the concepts advanced, by virtue of the necessity of referring to different letters, sometimes difficult to find, often poorly presented and which contain paragraphs having nothing to do with the original subject, thus making their reading very difficult. The concepts were gathered in a logical reading order which is:
¤ The IBOZOO UU
¤ The universe, philosophy and religion
¤ Theories of evolution
It is preferable to read each section after having “assimilated ” (as much as can be done) the preceding one.
Ummite Science has posted the letters as well, and while I will not attempt to bring the full of them here, I will give you a taste.
UNIFIED FIELD THEORY.
THE IBOZOO UU. TRUE STRUCTURE OF PHYSICAL SPACE, MASS, SUBATOMIC PARTICLES AND GRAVITATION.
During a conversation which you had with my brother on which I depend: DEI 98, son of DEI 97, you asked him for information about travel and the concept of SPACE. The topic is complex as you shall see in the documents that we will give you gradually. Of course, before describing the types of feelings we feel when we travel in a OAWOOLEA UEWA OEMM (lenticular vessel for intra-galactic displacement) it is better that you have a more precise idea of our concept of SPACE.
You will see that our theory differs substantially from that worked out by Earth mathematicians, and that our image of WAAM (our universe, part of the Universes), even though we regard it as a multidimensional UXGIIGIIAM (space) which has in its structure of many curves that we call masses, does not look anything like the Euclidean three-dimensional concept of space, and neither is it a faithful reflection of the modern Earth RIEMAN, BOLYAI or LOBATSCEWSKY models, which assume an N-space (or multidimensional space), implying that the cosmos can adopt the form of a positive- or negative-curvature hypersphere.
There exists for us what is called SPACE – TIME, conceived by MINKOWSKY but plunged in a dimension with N dimensions.
When we expose the concept of the IBOZOO UU (which should never be confused with the concept of point geometry or mathematics, worked out by Earth mathematicians as an abstraction with no basis in physical reality) you will better understand our Theory.
I meant to do the reading, but my dog ate my homework.
THE REAL WAAM AND THE “ILLUSORY” WAAM UNIVERSE
It is very difficult for the OEMII (man, by extension human, by another extension “intelligent living being) to have a true perception of the real nature of the Physical World which surrounds us. Apparently the mental images we have made for ourselves of this Medium which surrounds us can lead us to conclude in error that the Physical World is as we ” see “, ” touch ” or ” feel ” it.
But a careful analysis by the scientists of UMMO as well as by Earth scientists, and those of other Galactic civilisations (possessing a certain degree of culture) revealed that our WAAM is not as our senses normally perceive it. So: the vivid colours we enjoy looking at a flower garden are but a beautiful psychological perception. There is no chromatic richness that exists outside of us. Only a range of electromagnetic frequencies remains as the last substratum of perception.
The OEMII is the only being of the WAAM that goes beyond the limits of its own organism to understand the world, and it uses the spirit to this end as an intellectual means, since our bodily senses, nervous system and cortical mechanisms of synthesis and psychological perception completely distort reality.
OUR THEORY OF UXGIIGIAM WAAM (SPACE)
When our brothers arrived in Earth year 1950 on OYAGAA (Earth), and after having learned the French language and gone for the first time to the library located at 58 rue Richelieu in Paris, they were surprised to read in the Earth mathematics texts in the library that, for instance, concepts like the POINT, the LINE and the PLANE continued to be considered by you as simple abstractions of an underlying reality of the UNIVERSE.
Thus when the mathematicians of the Earth define a point as a family of curves or as an ordered set of N numbers in an N space, they have the intuition of the structure of a scalar space with N dimensions in which the point is defined inside a frame of reference by its corresponding co-ordinates.
According to these ideas, a line will be a set of points with a one-to-one mapping with the set of real numbers, so that the distance between two points of a space Rn defined as basic, can remain defined.
For those of you who have been doing the reading, you might find a little of it confusing.
They acknowledge this and set out to start clarifying their definitions.
THE AXIAL NETWORK OF THE IBOZOO UU
A summary definition of the final definition of the IBOZOO UU that we will give to you at the end is this one:
An IBOZOO UU is a elementary cosmic entity integrated by a beam of oriented axes WHICH CANNOT CROSS EACH OTHER, bound to a whole of IBOZOO UU independent one from the other in relation to their angularity.
You can see that we are gradually adjusting each time more accurately the authentic concept of IBOZOO UU defined by our specialists on UMMO. We thought that to bring you an exact definition from the outset would have been excessively confusing, especially taking into consideration that no theory approaching ours in its formalism exists on the planet EARTH.
There is so much more to this, you cannot get even a taste of the whole from these excerpts so if you really want to know, Visit Their Site.

UMMO: The Planet of the Anonymous Correspondents
Luis R. González
27 years of close encounters of the postal kind
In 1958 Donald Franson wrote a short SF story The Time for Delusion about a debunker who, in order to make a fool of every cultist once and for all, decide to publish (under a pen name) his own hoax, a book describing several phone talks with a Venusian. Among all the nonsense he planted many hidden clues, proving its fallacies. The book became an unexpected best-seller, and when he disclosed his authorship to blow-up the affair, pointing out to the buried evidence and self-revealing inconsistencies, nobody believed him !. They all knew he had been ordered to recant.
Let me finally present the UMMO affair, summed up in its appropriate dimensions:
Duration: a little more of a year (from February 1966 to July 1967), plus another outburst at the beginning of 1969. From then onwards, never more than occasional contacts. Space: limited to Spain, despite the headings of some documents suggesting translations to languages as non-existent as “slav-czech”.
Volume: Around 1000 known pages corresponding to 150 different shipments, even though they themselves said to have prepared “more than 6700 reports”! Contents: A third of the known material (330 pages) is just pure gossip, 269 pages referred to various philosophical considerations, around 178 pages gave some raw data (usually impossible to verify) and only 144 pages contained valuable information, already commented.
Quality: The papers never offered nothing really novel. For example, the cosmological theories could be derived from the works of Eddington and other material easily obtained in scientific journals of the time (like Nature and Science&Vie). Without a doubt the author was familiar with foreign material (the Ummites made references to the works of Halton Arp (sic), and also extracted from books by Martin Gardner, The Ambidextrous Universe, and Asimov, The Noble Gases). But with the hindsight of the 27 years passed, the contents look very naïve, and the real mystery is why so many people had believed in them for so long.
Mine is a radical use of the Occam’s razor. The Ummoaffair is just an unipersonal endeavour. The author surely enrolled some accomplices to forge traces and photos, and he also got the unexpected help of many others freelance hoaxers, but neither more people nor a secret agenda are needed. Hoaxing is fun, and funnier if you mix with your victims and enjoy their doubts, their emotions, their naïvete, and even become their master, pulling the threads of your puppets at will. Besides there is always the thrill of being uncovered. I will not even deceive myself by appealing to higher rational motivations like a sociological study or similar, as I suspect that the author himself did. But who was he?.
