Owens, Ted (1920-)

Psychic who in the 1960s claimed contact with intelligences from flying saucers. Unlike other contactees, Owens does not claim to have taken a ride on a saucer but uses his brain as a radio set for telepathic messages, to pass on to anyone interested. According to Owens, the ultimate purpose of the space intelligences was for him to act as an ambassador for them to world governments.

As a psychic, Owens claimed to control weather, predict events, and heal the sick. He has an IQ of 150, and is a member of Mensa, a well known organization of individuals with high mental test scores.
