Lots of questions spring to mind: Who exactly is this guy? Why does he want to do this? How does he plan to achieve this monumental vision? And is this a particularly slow day for UFO and extraterrestrial news?
Hill, a 39-year-old comedy songwriter and filmmaker from Colorado Springs, Colo., who also goes by the moniker "UFO Phil," claims to have been in touch with extraterrestrials since childhood, one in particular named Zaxon. Fine, I can already hear the jibes about how it sounds like a new laundry detergent.
He composed the song "Listening to 'Coast to Coast,' " which is heard at the end of each Friday-night edition of the biggest overnight radio program in North America, "Coast to Coast AM With George Noory."
Hill is also the subject of a 2008 made-for-DVD movie called "UFO Phil: The Movie," which, according to his website, "follows the life of this reclusive songwriter."
Communication between Hill and the ETs is accomplished, he says, through one of several telepathy chips they implanted in his brain. I suppose that's easier than using Skype.
"I went to a physician about 10 years ago, and I realize this is kind of ridiculous, but I was trying to find proof, some kind of X-ray or something that I could show to some of the people who were skeptical. And the physician refused to X-ray me, got real quiet and stopped taking my calls," Hill told AOL News.
Hill alleges that the ancient Egyptian pyramids -- designed by extraterrestrials, of course -- were massive stone power stations. Through his ongoing otherworldly contacts, he's been singled out and gifted with secret blueprints and schematics. These plans, of alien design, of course, reveal how the pyramids can generate enough hydrogen gas to power everything on Earth.
Or maybe, in fact, that's what will cause the disasters reportedly predicted by the Mayan calendar of the world coming to an end on Dec. 21, 2012. But let's not be pessimistic.
Hill comes across as very friendly and intelligent and someone who genuinely believes what he says. The Colorado Springs Independent points out that "UFO Phil has no political ambition. This makes him one of an estimated nine people in our town not running for council or mayor. Phil would, however, like to bring a being from another galaxy to a city council meeting, which would be a first."
Hill's plan is to build a pyramid to the exact specifications as the great pyramid in Giza, Egypt -- built around 2500 B.C. from massive amounts of quarried limestone, nearly 500 feet tall, and according to most experts, created as a tomb for the ancient Pharaoh Khufu.
Reality aside, Hill recognizes his plan is daunting and he admits he can't do it alone. "It'll depend on how the government allows me to proceed, as to how many people I'll be allowed to have help me. I need at least 60 strong people to carry one brick, and it takes 2.3 million bricks to assemble the pyramid.
"Physically, the pyramid fits perfectly on top of Pikes Peak. I've been up there to measure, and I was a little concerned at first, but once we wipe out the existing parking area -- the visitors parking and then the visitors center, where all they really do is sell cups and trinkets -- when we get rid of that, then there's no problem."
No problem? Hardly. Someone's bound to complain, especially since Pikes Peak, part of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, is a national historic landmark and was the inspiration for the beloved Katharine Lee Bates poem "America the Beautiful."
Hill initially contacted the U.S. Forest Service, asking for information on how to submit a construction proposal for Pikes Peak. Not surprisingly, he was informed by a spokesperson that his pyramid idea might not exactly fly with the government.
"We cannot speculate or formally comment on a concept you have not fully developed and submitted," the Forest Service responded to Hill.
"That said, an initial consideration of the pyramid-shaped power plant proposal would likely find the proposed use would unreasonably conflict and interfere with the Forest Management Plan and existing authorized uses on Pikes Peak."
In his latest press release, Hill interprets the government response as actually giving him the authorization he needs to start erecting his pyramid. "Leaders at the forest service informed me that I only needed to apply for a construction permit under certain circumstances. But since I'm not building for profit or assembling more than 75 people, it appears I can go ahead and build."
Undaunted, Hill believes that he can move forward with his plan. But he doesn't know how much his mountaintop UFO gas-energy stop would even cost or who would pay for it.
"What I'm hoping for is to find somebody who has access to limestone -- maybe someone who owns a quarry, a benefactor or someone to donate the limestone or the funds to help me purchase the limestone. Once you realize that what I'm doing here is going to benefit the entire planet, somebody somewhere should come forward with this," he said.
And oh, yes, Hill admits his alien friends have also instructed him to build what he calls energy relay transmitters at the top of San Francisco's famed Coit Tower, New York's Empire State Building and Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.
Certainly, one question that comes to mind is, why hasn't anyone else figured all this stuff out before? You know, the pyramid information, energy from hydrogen via the pyramid chambers, etc.? Why is it only now being offered to mankind through Hill?
"I just think that they are not in contact with the same aliens that I am," he said.
