Open Ideas on Extraterrestrials: Evidence

Evidence - Potential Exopolitics

Next month the Department of Defense and related intelligence agencies will release a UFO report stipulated in former President Trump's last stimulus bill.  It will likely be a 'limited hangout'.  In other words, TPTB will reveal only enough information to pacify the masses.  In some sense, it would also not make any sense to even attempt to share too much information.  From a practical standpoint, it takes time to organize, present, and teach information.  Whatever is shared will be some form of progress.   

My aim here today is not to convince you entirely or present the evidence in full.  I simply want to share some interesting rational evidence and also some less than rational insights on how people connect aliens to other questions of global conspiracies.*

An Interdisciplinary Approach

What we call reality is in fact nothing more than a culturally sanctioned and linguistically reinforced hallucination.
        Terrence McKenna

Rationality obviously has a place in state decision-making.  2 and 2 are probably almost always 4.  However, an openness of thought is also important.  I call this openness of thought arationality - not to be confused with irrationality.  Personally, I find the evidence of extraterrestrials overwhelming - mostly because I take first-personal testimony seriously.  I see a consistency in the observations and themes in those testimonies.  We have a plethora of first-person testimonies - many of which corroborate various details of others' experiences.  First-person testimony is a meaningful component of truth-finding; and reliance on those testimonies is rational.  

You can't discount it simply because it is at odds with your worldview.  That is actually irrational.  We must have an open yet discriminating mind.  In this sense, we practice an interdisciplinary approach that utilizes the rational and arational.  There are many ways to refute testimony on UFOs or extraterrestrials.  The greater question you face is what happens if you don't immediately rush to judgment and let your intuition and subconscious consider these matters without the force of your immediate prejudices or desires about the truth. 

Some Engaging Samples of Evidence

[T]here is every bit as much evidence for the existence of UFOs as there is for the existence of God.  Probably far more.  At least in the case of UFOs there have been countless taped and filmed and, by the way, unexplained sightings from all over the world, along with documented radar evidence seen by experienced military and civilian radar operators.
        George Carlin

Today it can be stated with a high degree of confidence that observed manifestation of UFOs is no longer confined to the modern picture of the world… The historical evidence of the phenomenon allows us to hypothesize that ever since mankind has been co-existing with this extraordinary substance, it has manifested a high level of intelligence and technology.  The UFO sightings have become a constant component of human activity and require a serious global study.

Although the 1947 Roswell incident is a significant event in this history, I found myself drawn to post-1980 evidence when I started this piece.  Roswell is particularly relevant to the atomic weaponry connection addressed below.   Truthfully, a robust list of evidence would also include the 1561 incident over Nuremberg, several historical paintings such as Visoki Decani's 1350 The Crucifixion Of Christ, and other ancient cultural evidence among the Mayans and Sumerians, for instance.

First, recall this short documentary of an event involving several interrelated and corroborated experiences among many children in Zimbabwe in September 1994; this testimony simply deserves your attention.  It is fascinating in that testimony is invariably about extraterrestrials and not UFOs.  It is by far my favorite source of evidence.

Second, recall the seminal NY Times article from 2017 that recalls an event involving US Navy fighters pilots in 2004; here is a related video from The History Channel.  The significance of this event, which is merely UFOs, is not so much the event but that the NY Times and other news outlets choose to report on it. 

Here is a third incident.  Recall Japanese Airlines flight 1628; consider the wiki and a related presentation with John Callahan, an FAA Official involved in the investigation that followed.  Essentially, two objects directed lights at the airplane.  The lights created heat that the pilots could feel.  Soon afterward, a third larger object became visible on the port side.

Fourth, recall this interview with Paul Hellyer, former Canadian Minister of National Defence.  He is the so-called 'highest-ranking believer'.  He is the first and only cabinet-level official from a G8 nation to make such claims.  He specifically claims that American officials have met with extraterrestrials.  He also claims that these extraterrestrials have shared technologies such as lasers, fiber optics, and kevlar.  He corroborates Linda Moulton Howe's claims that extraterrestrials are concerned about the human use of atomic weapons.  He discusses the existences of short Greys, tall Greys, Nordic blondes, and Praying Mantis beings.  He not only had access to relevant reports, but he also has had an encounter of the first kind - namely a vehicle sighting. 

Fifthrecall this (sadly comedic) documentary on Phoenix Lights from 1997.  Here is a related interview of the then Arizona Governor Fife Symington.  What makes this event interesting is certainly the footage but also the number of witnesses.  Sixth, recall Joe Rogan's interview with the infamous Bob Lazar, who claims to have worked near Area 51 on extraterrestrial spacecraft

Seventh, consider this interview with Steve Boucher.  He claims to have had two encounters of the fourth kind, depending on your interpretation.  A fourth-kind encounter involves an abduction.  His interview is not famous but I find him authentic and clearly affected by the experience.  Eighth, recall the testimony of US Air Force Sergeant Jim Penniston regarding an event in the Rendlesham Forest in England.  Penniston is not the only person who has shared testimony here but the Rendlesham Forest incident is worth learning about.

Ninth is the 2001 National Press Club testimony event hosted by The Disclosure Project, which is headed by Steven Greer, MD.  This event was an extensive showcase of testimony from over twenty military, intelligence, government, corporate, and scientific witnesses.

There are other testimonies and incidents: Pervez Jafari, Herb Schirmer, Travis Walton, NASA Captain Edgar Mitchell, and others.  

For further learning, consider the work of Richard Dolan and Linda Moulton Howe.  Greer, Stanton Friedman, and Bruce Maccabee are all key researchers in these matters.  Dolan has a truly wild interview with forecaster Clif High; it is admittedly strange.  Dan Aykroyd also has an interview with Joe Rogan regarding his own film on the subject.   I am also partial to the work of Linda Moulton Howe but it is very strange material.  Her more recent work is not for the faint of heart.

* As I have been saying a lot in recent years, option3 remains committed to conventional policy issues.  And yet I am increasingly open to what some call woo-woo.  Since at least 2012 and probably much earlier, I actively believed that extraterrestrials existed.  And I sensed the same perhaps my entire life.
