Buri Meller (Southern-Style Greens)

At age 7, while  playing marbles, Buri Meller says he saw a large, stainless steel bowl of Southern-Style Greens hovering in the sky like a space ship. From it radiated a human form of cosmic intelligence.   Meller claims the encounter “conditioned” him — charging him with psychic powers to further the evolution of humankind and prepare earthlings for contact with  galactic neighbors.
