“Yes, it’s both. It’s both literally, physically happening to a degree; and it’s also some kind of psychological, spiritual experience occurring and originating perhaps in another dimension. And so the phenomenon stretches us, or it asks us to stretch to open to realities that are not simply the literal physical world, but to extend to the possibility that there are other unseen realities from which our consciousness, our, if you will, learning processes over the past several hundred years have closed us off.” – John Mack(source)

John Mack was a Harvard professor, psychiatrist, and Pulitzer Prize recipient. He, like many other academics, became very interested in the alien abduction phenomenon. One can see how this sparked his interest; after all, he was a professor of psychiatry. If you told a psychiatrist you’d had contact with beings from another world, you’d probably be handed a diagnosis of schizophrenia or psychosis along with a handful of medication. This is a disturbing thought, given the tremendous amount of evidence that’s now available to suggest that people are actually having legitimate experiences with extraterrestrial beings, or at the very least, are being completely genuine in their accounts. That’s not to say that some people do not suffer from hallucinations, but there are a lot of people out there who are actually having real experiences as well. John Mack was well aware of this evidence, and this is why he is one of the key pioneers of abduction research.

“There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time.” – Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor (source)

Before you continue, it’s important to note that Mack was well aware of the UFO phenomenon, which has been disclosed by dozens of governments around the world by high level officials and documents. You can see some of those documents and statements in articles that are heavily sourced HERE and HERE.

“Just how literally to take this, is one of the most interesting and complex aspects of this. And I want to walk through that as clearly as I can. There are aspects of this which I believe we are justified in taking quite literally. That is, UFOs are in fact observed, filmed on camera at the same time that people are having their abduction experiences.” – John Mack (source)

As a medical professional, Mack’s first priority was the health of his patients. For the most part he considered them to be normal and healthy people who had experienced something mysterious.

“In fact, he considered it remarkable that, despite the obvious trauma they had undergone, most of these people were not medically or psychiatrically disturbed.” – Richard Dolan (1)

Mack had personally interviewed hundreds of supposed abductees, which became the focal point of his book Abduction, published in 1994. One of the most interesting cases came from a supposed encounter with over sixty schoolchildren in the town of Ruwa, Zimbabwe, on September 16th 1994. The children claim to have seen multiple hovering objects that resembled what we would describe as spaceships. All sixty of these school children described and offered drawings of these events with remarkable consistency.

We published an article a few months ago that goes more in depth on that specific case with pictures, interviews, and more. You can read that article HERE. You can view him interviewing the children HERE.

“They describe these events like a person talks about something that has happened to them. I can tell that these are people of sound mind telling me something…”  (source)

Through his work, Mack observed most abductees express how they had gained a greater spiritual awareness, or spiritual-type insights, as a result of their experience. He alluded to the idea that contact between human and non human extraterrestrial intelligence could in fact have positive outcomes. He found many commonalities among these reports, and believed people were being completely genuine about what they had experienced.

Another one of these similarities was telepathic communication between aliens and abductees, in which he drew the conclusion that this type of communication is part of altering human consciousness. For example, a lot of this type of telepathic communication (like the case mentioned above in Zimbabwe) has involved implanting images of environmental disasters, earthquakes, or other major catastrophes. As a result, many abductees have pursued humanitarian paths, trying to shift the direction in which our planet currently seems to be heading. (Realted CE Article: Alarming Study: Our Time To Avoid Dramatic Consequences Is Rapidly Disappearing)

Another common experience that supposed abductees describe, which Mack outlines in his book, is the process known as hybridization:

“Scott, one of the subjects in Mack’s book, ‘Abduction,’ had been a skeptic on the matter of extraterrestrials, but then was humiliated to recall how beings had laid him on a table and used various wires to stimulate sexual arousal and ejaculation. In his words, all of this was in order to ‘make babies.’ He felt violated and angry that the beings were controlling his memories and ‘messing with his head.’ On another occasion, he was shown cylinders with tiny babies, presumably from his sperm. He was also taken to an underground facility, where he saw that the alien beings were something like an extended family to him, in the sense that they knew everything about him. Indeed, they knew more about him than any human family would have known. Scott learned, somehow, that these beings were in the process of changing themselves physically so that they could breath on Earth. This is a key part of the hybridization process, he said.” (1)
One important factor about Mack was the fact that, although some abduction experiences have been extremely traumatic for some people, and even cruel at times, for him there was still an element of spiritual transformation. Moreover, even if we perceive something to be cruel, it may be borne of good intentions. This view is in contrast to that of many other abductee researchers, and it’s why Mack used the term “experiencer” instead of “abductee.”

Keep in mind, people have reported contact with various types of beings, but human-looking beings, as well as the classic “grey” alien type, seem to be the most common.

“There is a—I believe, a gradation of experiences and that go from the most literal physical kinds of hurts, wounds, person removed, spacecraft that can be photographed, to experiences which are more psychological, spiritual, involve the extension of consciousness. The difficulty for our society and for our mentality is, we have a kind of either/or mentality. It’s either, literally physical; or it’s in the spiritual other realm, the unseen realm. What we seem to have no place for—or we have lost the place for—are phenomena that can begin in the unseen realm, and cross over and manifest and show up in our literal physical world.” – John Mack (source)

With the above quote, it’s fitting to leave you with this video from the Citizens Hearing on Disclosure that took place in May of 2013. It was held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC where military/agency/political personnel shared witness testimony about the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon. Also included were statements from a number of academics, researchers, and activists. They gave their testimony to several former members of the United States Congress.

It’s a clip of Dr. Roger Leir, who was a doctor of podiatric medicine, and arguably the best known individual with regards to extracting alleged alien implants. He has performed more than fifteen surgeries that removed sixteen separate distinct objects. These objects have been investigated by several prestigious laboratories, including Los Alamos National Laboratories, New Mexico Tech, and many others. Unfortunately, he passed away in March 2014, but his legacy lives on.

There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, by other civilizations. Who they are, where they are from, and what they want should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not be the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” (source) – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

“There is another way whether it’s wormholes or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re here shows us that they found a way.” (source– Jack Kasher, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of Physics, University of Nebraska.

The US recently released its highly anticipated Pentagon UAP report, but it wasn’t much more than a 9 page rundown of what has been known for decades. Regardless, for many, what was promising was that the UFO subject was being taken seriously again – and perhaps many more scientists might get involved.

For decades many have been warning about leaving UFO disclosure in the hands of a government that likes to use crisis’ or current events to expand its defense budgets. Further, why would we suddenly expect a government, who has been lying about this subject for 70 years, to suddenly come forth with the truth? What would inspire them to suddenly change their mind?

Perhaps it’s because the search for ET is an idea who’s time has truly come. We’ve reporting on this for over 13 years, and are mongst a community of researchers who have been encouraging humanity to look at the evidence for more than 70 years. It feels like an idea that human collective consciousness is more than ready to explore.

The impact the ET question has on our individual and collective worldview has the power to truly change the way we view ourselves and the meaning of life here on earth. Think of the implications answers to this question could have on how we set up and run our society as well. Technology, culture, collaboration etc – I spoke about this more in great detail in my extended interview for Greer’s. prior film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind here.

Now, a new documentary from Dr. Steven Greer, directed by my good friend Michael Mazzola, seeks to explore what the films calls “the current government and media disinformation campaign promoting 3 big lies:”

1. We do not know what these UAPs/ UFOs are. WE DO.
2. Humans cannot make craft that can maneuver like UFOs. WE CAN and WE DO.
3. The UFOs are a threat. THEY ARE NOT.

Bold statements. Watch the film below and see what resonates most with you.

Pentagon UFO Report: Explanations Fall Into One of Five Categories. Aliens Not Ruled Out

So is it aliens? The long awaited Pentagon UFO report is here, and the executive summary alone gives insight into the nature of this report from US Intelligence Communities.

The limited amount of high-quality reporting on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) hampers our ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAP. The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) considered a range of information on UAP described in U.S. military and IC (Intelligence Community) reporting, but because the reporting lacked sufficient specificity, ultimately recognized that a unique, tailored reporting process was required to provide sufficient data for analysis of UAP events.

Essentially, the report aims to acknowledge 16 years of this phenomenon, while leaving out the 70 years it has been studying this phenomenon.

Still, as per the report, the U.S. government can’t explain 143 of the 144 cases of unidentified flying objects reported by their own military planes.

It acknowledges that “a handful of UAP appear to demonstrate advanced technology.”

In 18 incidents, described in 21 reports, observers reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics. Some UAP appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernible means of propulsion. In a small number of cases, military aircraft systems processed radio frequency (RF) energy associated with UAP sightings.

The UAPTF holds a small amount of data that appear to show UAP demonstrating acceleration or a degree of signature management. Additional rigorous analysis are necessary by multiple teams or groups of technical experts to determine the nature and validity of these data. We are conducting further analysis to determine if breakthrough technologies were demonstrated.

It goes on to drop the last 16 years of measuring this phenomenon into 5 key categories, non of which mention non human intelligent life, but that is technically a bin for it.

The five categories are,

Airborne Clutter: These objects include birds, balloons, recreational unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), or airborne debris like plastic bags that muddle a scene and affect an operator’s ability to identify true targets, such as enemy aircraft. Natural

Atmospheric Phenomena: Natural atmospheric phenomena includes ice crystals, moisture, and thermal fluctuations that may register on some infrared and radar systems.

USG or Industry Developmental Programs: Some UAP observations could be attributable to developments and classified programs by U.S. entities. We were unable to confirm, however, that these systems accounted for any of the UAP reports we collected.

Foreign Adversary Systems: Some UAP may be technologies deployed by China, Russia, another nation, or a non-governmental entity. UNCLASSIFIED 6 UNCLASSIFIED

Other: Although most of the UAP described in our dataset probably remain unidentified due to limited data or challenges to collection processing or analysis, we may require additional scientific knowledge to successfully collect on, analyze and characterize some of them. We would group such objects in this category pending scientific advances that allowed us to better understand them. The UAPTF intends to focus additional analysis on the small number of cases where a UAP appeared to display unusual flight characteristics or signature management.

The report does state, rather predictably, that some observations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception and require additional rigorous analysis.

As expected, they are claiming that “UAP clearly pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to U.S. national security.” What’s odd about this statement is that this phenomenon has been known about for 70 years, yet not a single aviation incident has occurred that anyone knows of, so why are they a threat to flight all of a sudden?

Further, one could expect “a threat to nation security” would be mentioned  for two reasons: on a political level this means more attention will be paid to the issue, and there has long been political leverage gained from presenting certain global events as a threat to ‘get other things done.’

In this case, the report makes mention of foreign adversary threats should these incidences fall under that category, claiming these could be breakthrough or disruptive technology.

The report contends that further scientific analysis and more focused measurement apparatus would be required to answer some of the unanswered questions surrounding ‘the few’ instances where UAP performed ‘impossible’ maneuvers.

There is likely a classified version of this report that would be in much greater detail. The question is why after 70 years is the public still in the dark?

Perhaps the takeaway here is that although this is essentially a repeat of Project Blue Book of the 50s and 60s, we are now in a time where it’s being talked about again. Further, we are in an age where information spreads a lot faster and a lot further then back then. Perhaps that will be the kicker this time around.

We’ll have more detailed coverage throughout the day and into tomorrow.

The long awaited Pentagon UFO report is set to be released from the U.S. Intelligence Community. Some of those waiting expect a moment of acknowledgment, but perhaps nothing all that new, while others are hoping for a much deeper admission of non-human intelligent life. Time will tell.

In the wake, Senator Marco Rubio has issued the following statement:

Rubio Statement on UAP Report

Miami, FL — Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Vice Chairman Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement on the unclassified report on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) issued by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

“For years, the men and women we trust to defend our country reported encounters with unidentified aircraft that had superior capabilities, and for years their concerns were often ignored and ridiculed,” Rubio said. “This report is an important first step in cataloging these incidents, but it is just a first step. The Defense Department and Intelligence Community have a lot of work to do before we can actually understand whether these aerial threats present a serious national security concern.”

In 2020, Rubio, as Acting Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, included report language in the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 directing ODNI to submit a report to congressional intelligence and armed services committees on unidentified aerial phenomena.

We’ll have full coverage of the what’s in the report later today, if the report is released, and of course in the coming days as it will inevitably require much analysis and discussion. Sign up to our email list and follow us on Twitter for more to come.
