'UFO Phil' Wants to Put a Pyramid on Pikes Peak

Phil Hill is a man with a dream -- a big dream. Maybe even an impossible dream. But this Don Quixote of the ET set is asking the U.S. government to allow him to build a giant pyramid on top of Pikes Peak in Colorado -- to be used by both humans and aliens.
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.

This rendering shows the result of UFO Phil's idea to build a pyramid atop Pikes Peak, presumably to generate enough energy to be used by the whole world.
Whether UFO Phil is a real or imagined personality, he's surprisingly entertaining, and through numerous radio appearances, videos, films and television news reports he's been getting his name out there to promote his offbeat ideas.
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.
