It’s almost 2018, and the subject of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) or Unidentified Ariel Phenomenon (UAP, a term that seems to be the new “official wording” from government personnel) is now a verified fact within the mainstream. Just as certain as we are of  several different concepts that come from repeatable hard science, or information about other phenomena in other subject areas dealing with observation, we (humanity) are just as certain about UFOs.

When Ex Canadian Defence minister Paul Hellyer said that “UFOs are as real as the airplanes flying overhead,” he wasn’t joking. Documents, along with live testimony from dozens, if not hundreds of people from within “high level” government and intelligence groups have also been speaking about the topic quite publicly.

There are literally too many examples to name, from four star generals, to directors of military contractors like Lockheed Martin, directors of intelligence agencies, heads of major military committee’s, like NATO, and much more.

The latest examples would be Steve Justice, a recently retired 30 year director of Lockheed Skunkworks (aerospace), and now on as a director at To The Stars, who recently stated:

“This is a concept for an international point-to-point transportation craft that will erase the current travel limits of distance and time.  It mimics the capabilities observed in unidentified aerial phenomenon by employing a drive system that alters space-time metric.  We have glimpses of how the physics of this works, but we need to harvest technologies from the Science Division to “realize” the capability.”  – Steve Justice, Aerospace Division Director

By making this statement, he is relaying that there are unidentified craft that are using these capabilities to travel what we would consider to be vast distances.

One of his predecessors, Ben Rich (2nd director of Lockheed Shunkworks) also made some very interesting comments. You can read more about that,  and access those comments here.

Robert Bigelow, the Founder of Bigelow aerospace recently went public stating that he knows for a fact that “ET” is here. You can see that interview and read more about it here.

Sure, witness testimony is not enough to draw a conclusion, but given their positions and long records of “credibility,” it’s almost ridiculous to ignore. If it were one or two people there would be reasons to doubt, but when there are multiple hundreds, we know something is up, especially when their encounters with “UFOs” has already been verified by their employer, the government, and by official previously classified documents.

Since many do not consider witness testimony credible, no matter who it comes from, it’s always important to mention the documents, the evidence of radar trackings and more.

Obviously, this is a topic that still challenges many people, rubs them the wrong way and conflicts with long held belief systems. This has been a pattern with many subjects and new discoveries throughout human history, things change slowly over time, but with our rapid technological development,  which is still increasing at an exponential rate (don’t forget the black budget world), we don’t seem to be that far off. In fact, we already seem to be there.

“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do it.”  – Ben Rich (source)

Remember, UFO doesn’t exactly 100 percent equate to extraterrestrial, however, it’s one of many possibilities and probabilities that has its own evidence to make that assertion.

The documents that have been released by several governments, intelligence agencies and cases via The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) indicate objects and encounters (mostly military encounters) with objects travelling at unattainable speeds, and performing maneuvers that no known aircraft of ours can, in some cases defying our own understanding of physics.

“As the F-4 approached a range of 25 nautical miles it lost all instrumentation and communications. When the F-4 turned away from the object and apparently was no longer a threat to it, the aircraft regained all instrumentation and communications. Another brightly lighted object came out of the original object. The second object headed straight toward the F4. ”  (source)

We even have publications in peer-reviewed journals being put out about extraterrestrial hypothesis exists. Here is one example, here is another.  Here’s another interesting one from 1994 talking about physical evidence related to the phenomenon, which we now have more of today.

Below is a great little talk from Jacques Vallee talking about how can start learning from all of these encounters. He’s a computer scientist and astronomer who has done work for NASA, and more. He’s most table for co-developing the first computerized mapping of Mars and for his work at SRI International on the network information centre for ARPANET.

Government Deception

This would be an appropriate time to state that, obviously, our governments have deceived us on so many levels, it’s more than likely that as more information continues to make its way into the public domain, there will be good reasons to have a heightened sense scepticism when they speak about UFOs and/or extraterrestrials, as with anything else.

The mainstream world is full of twisted agendas and attempts to alter our perception for truth and profit, or other agenda’s that are not really in the people’s best interest, but rather the ‘1 percent’s’ best interest. The global war against drugs, or terrorism are perfect examples. Especially with the fact that ‘false flag’ terrorism has become more transparent.

To get a clear picture of this topic, which is almost impossible to do the deeper you get into it, one must do independent research rather than rely on the same media which has tight ties to corporate and government interests, under the guise of “national security.”

This is not to say that there are not good people, with pure intentions, just doing their job within these arenas. It’s a complicated topic, but when discussing it one must always keep the Deep State in the back of their mind, as it controls the entire geo-political perceptive, in most cases.

There are efforts being made to alert the public, Tom Delonge’s To The Stars effort is one of them, but this is a very compartmentalized topic. He is getting information from those from within the intelligence world, but who are they getting their information from and is it correct? Is it truthful? Or is there some sort of spin on it, for whatever reason? And do those who are relaying this information even realize that there could be as spin?

Who knows what’s really going on.

Is A False Flag Alien Invasion In The Works? Wernher Von-Brauns Colleague Seems To Think So

Are there really legitimate reasons for the cover-up after so many years? Was it justified? I believe humanity is meant to live in transparency, and we and can handle this type of information, and we were meant to receive it. Acknowledging certain truths about the nature of reality is an important step in our human evolution, as it provides opportunities for us to move beyond paradigms of the past, and move forward to where we are supposed to go, and perhaps that is to the stars.

The corporate and financial take-over of our democratic system has contributed to the secrecy, no doubt. This topic has huge technological and intellectual implications that could completely transform our planet and help create new ways of doing things here. And, as with everything else, those who are making billions and trillions off of the old way of doing things might also have a say.

What type of propulsion systems are these craft using?

Sure, we know UFOs are real, but mainstream media (as well as government) have a long history of taking real events and using them for their advantage, and usually do so by twisting our perception what’s really going on.

With this topic, as with every other, we simply can’t rely on government and official intelligence people all the time, with complete credibility. It’s important to remember that there is a lot of disinformation that has infiltrated this field, and one must always use their discernment.

Are They Extraterrestrial? 

The existence of UFOs is verified, in several different ways, but extraterrestrial intelligence is still a different story. There are multiple factors that lead to the extraterrestrial hypothesis. As mentioned above, before UFOs were officially “verified,” there was good reason to believe in their existence, and now it’s official. In the same way, there is now evidence to believe that some of these sophisticated craft are in fact extraterrestrial.

“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

Many people, like Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, have come forth expressing the same thing, and have flat out said that they have knowledge of extraterrestrial intelligence as it related to the UFO phenomenon.

Here’s an FBI document  discussing extraterrestrial bodies and craft (page 21 & 22) , here’s an article with an interesting CIA document linked in it referring to extraterrestrial bodies and a military encounter.  There are several examples one can locate within the literature, which are  both benevolent and malevolent in nature.

Below is an interesting discussion featuring Richard Dolan, one of the worlds foremost authorities on the topic. He goes in a little deeper about the extraterrestrial hypothesis. If you want to learn more about the topic, he’s a great place to start.

“It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.” – Herman Oberth, founding father of modern rocketry (source)

Leaked Videos & Pictures of ‘Pyramid Shaped UFOs’ Above U.S. Navy Destroyer Ship

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Filmmaker Jeremy Corbell has obtained unclassified slides and videos of UFO encounters with a Navy destroyer showing what appear to be triangle or pyramid shaped UFOs

  • Reflect On:

    What are the implications for humanity if we are being visited and have been visited for a long time by life from elsewhere?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

What Happened: A few years ago, the Pentagon released video footage of a military encounter of UFOs with Navy fighter pilots, the Navy has since confirmed the authenticity of the videos and the pilots involved in the encounter have gone on record speaking about their experience, as have hundreds of other military pilots from around the world who have experienced the same thing. Last year, the Navy released even more official documentation with regards to recent incidents with unidentified aircraft encounters. This recent slew of bizarre events in 2019 remain unexplained according to a recent statement by the Chief of Naval Operations.

So what’s the latest news regarding these incidents? According to filmmaker Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell, who became more well known in the field due to his recent documentary on supposed UFO whistleblower Bob Lazar,

On May 1st 2020 a classified briefing was generated about the UFO / UAP presence, via the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI). Those familiar with the briefing articulated to me that the goal was to de-stigmatize the UAP problem and to promote more intelligence collection regarding UAP incursions and encounters with active military deployments. This UAP briefing was a build-on to a previous ONI briefing, generated October 18th 2019. Both were distributed across a wide range of intelligence networking platforms (such as SIPRNet, JWICS and various Intelink systems).

I was able to obtain information regarding these and other UAP related briefings – as well as – two unclassified slides and some of the most intriguing military captured UAP footage I have ever seen.

The context surrounding this content is important to understand – as its evidentiary value is best demonstrated through the lens of provenance. I want you to understand why this new evidence is worth your full attention – if it’s not inherently obvious to you.

Mystery Wire has also confirmed this leak, and has recently published more photos that’ve been taken by Navy pilots. I came across this video from a tweet recently tweet by Christopher Mellon, Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence.

Why This Is Important: Gone are the days when UFOs were considered a conspiracy theory. We are talking objects performing maneuvers that no known aircraft can perform that defy our understanding of aerodynamics and physics. Today in the mainstream they are referred to as Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP), and multiple governments have, including most recently the U.S. government, released video footage, pictures, and millions of pages of previously classified documents pertaining to military encounters with these objects. This topic has been seriously covered in the New York Times, and CNN among other “mainstream” media outlets.

Reports and incidents of “crashed craft” have also gone mainstream.

This has us here at Collective Evolution quite concerned, as we do believe there is a strong possibility for mainstream media to take a real phenomenon and manipulate the masses perception around it, as they do and have done with so many other topics. You can read more about that concern, here.

The UFO phenomenon can be a complicated one to understand. Collective Evolution has been diving into the topic in depth since our inception in 2009. If you’d like to access our article archive on the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon, you can click here.

This field is no doubt filled with deception, hoaxes and misinformation, despite the fact that we are dealing with what appears to be a very real phenomenon. It can be hard to sift through all of the information that’s out there and determine what’s false and what may be real. The very fact that intelligence agencies have spread disinformation across this field, for years, is a testament to that.

Furthermore, as mentioned above, why does mainstream media all of a sudden present this topic seriously? Why don’t they give any air time to researchers in the field who have been diving in depth into this topic for decades? Are they trying to control our perception of the phenomenon? Will they present the phenomenon in a manner and light that is not truly indicative of the truth? For example, many believe this onslaught of legitimacy given to the topic as of late within the mainstream will be used to present the phenomenon as a “threat” for ulterior motives. Painting the issue with a threat narrative would be very suspicious, given the fact that the behaviour of these objects do not seem threatening at all, but rather evasive and curious, if anything.

According to Richard F. Haines, a senior NASA research scientist for more than two decades, in 50 percent of the cases he’s come across, the objects appear to come within the vicinity of our aircraft, performing fascinating maneuvers and demonstrating what appears to be curiosity. He mentions that the phenomenon seems to perform evasive maneuvers to avoid our aircraft as to not create any sort of potential for a collision. When I saw this part of the interview, it reminded me of the following quote from General Nathan Twining in 1947.

The phenomenon reported is something real and not visionary or fictitious…The reported operating characteristics such as extreme rates of climb, maneuverability, (particularly in roll), and the actions which must be considered evasive when sighted or contacted by friendly aircraft and radar, lend belief to the possibility that some of the objects are controlled either manually, automatically or remotely.” (source)

The quote below comes from Renowned UFO researcher, scientist, mathematician, and astrophysicist Dr. Jacques Vallée who recently made an appearance on the Joe Rogan show to discuss the UFO phenomenon. The F18s he’s referring to come from the encounter released by the Pentagon a few years ago that shows Navy pilots attempting to intercept a UFO, also mentioned at the beginning of the article.

We have to stop reacting to intrusions by UFOs as a threat…there is more…this should not be looked at specifically as a threat…With the phenomenon that we observe if they wanted to blow up those F18s they would do it. Obviously that’s not what it’s all about, and this idea of just labelling it all as a threat because it’s unknown, that’s the wrong idea. (source)

The Takeaway: This topic has huge implications. I’ve said it a million times before, it leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. Just as there was evidence for the fact that UFOs were real when the topic was considered a “conspiracy theory” there is, in my opinion, abundant evidence suggesting that some of these objects originate from some other type of life.

“There are unidentified flying objects. That is, there are a hard core of cases – perhaps 20 to 30 percent in different studies – for which there is no explanation…We can only imagine what purpose lies behind the activities of these quiet, harmlessly cruising objects that time and again approach the earth. The most likely explanation, it seems to me, is that they are simply watching what we are up to.”  Margaret Mead (“UFOs – Visitors from Outer Space?,” Redbook, vol. 143, September 1974.)

What are the implications of humanity coming to terms with the idea or fact that we are being visited and have been visited by life from elsewhere for quite some time?

Harvard & Stanford Medical Professors Strongly Condemn “Vaccine Passports”

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. Martin Kulldorff, a Harvard medical professor and vaccine expert alongside Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford are two of many experts in the field condemning the idea of "vaccine passports."

  • Reflect On:

    Are we seeing basic freedoms and enjoyable experiences within life become inaccessible for those that don't wish to participate in extreme COVID measures? What is this fear driven approach saying about our general view of life at this time?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

What Happened: Dr. Martin Kulldorff, a Harvard medical professor, epidemiologist and vaccine expert alongside Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, (two founding members of The Great Barrington Declaration) a physician and professor at Stanford Medical school recently published a piece in the Wall Street Journal condemning the idea of vaccine passports, a measure that seems to be gaining traction in multiple countries.

These vaccine “passports” would allow those who have been vaccinated to travel without being subjected to quarantine measures, and perhaps go to concerts, enter certain restaurants, schools, sports arenas, and other public buildings that those who are not vaccinated will not be allowed to enter, it appears. It looks like these passports are going to be digital, once you’ve received your shots, you get a phone app or a document that you will flash to gain entry. Who knows what freedoms previously enjoyed will be unavailable to the unvaccinated? We have yet to see how this will all roll out.

According to the professors,

Covid vaccine passports would harm, not benefit, public health. The idea that everybody needs to be vaccinated is as scientifically baseless as the idea that nobody does. Covid vaccines are essential for older, high-risk people and their caretakers and advisable for many others. But those who’ve been infected are already immune. The young are at low risk, and children — for whom no vaccine has been approved anyway — are at far less risk of death than from the flu.

 The public has lost trust in officials in part because they’ve performed poorly — relying on lockdowns to disastrous effect — and in part because they’ve made clear their distrust of the public. Trust, after all, is a two-way street. Coercive vaccination policies would erode trust even further. Even well-informed people may legitimately wonder: Why are they forcing me to take this shot if it’s so good for me?

Vaccine passports are unjust and discriminatory. Most of those endorsing the idea belong to the laptop class — privileged professionals who worked safely and comfortably at home during the epidemic. Millions of Americans did essential jobs at their usual workplaces and became immune the hard way. Now they would be forced to risk adverse reactions from a vaccine they don’t need.

Keep in mind that these two professors are not against vaccination. In their article they make their belief quite clear that vaccines are very important and have saved millions of lives.

If you’re interested in learning why so many people, doctors and scientists will not take the vaccine, I recently wrote an article that goes a little more in-depth into that topic, which you can read here.

Why This Is Important: I recently wrote an article about Dr. Suneel Dhand, an internal medicine doctor with a hefty following on YouTube. In one of his most recent videos he makes the same point as the professors above regarding prior infection.

I’m not aware of any vaccine out there which will ever give you more immunity than if you’re naturally recovered from the illness itself…If you’ve naturally recovered from it, my understanding as a doctor level scientist is that those antibodies will always be better then a vaccine, and if you know any differently, please let me know.

As I’ve pointed out before in several of my articles, there are multiple studies hinting to the point these doctors are  making, that those who have been infected with covid have immunity, and may have immunity for decades. There are studies that suggest infection to prior coronaviruses, which prior to COVID-19 circled the globe infecting hundreds of millions of people every single year, can also provide protection from COVID-19. Keep in mind, the estimated number of people infected is, like other viruses, highly likely to be much more than the numbers we seen have from testing.

According to a new study authored by respected scientists at leading labs, individuals who recovered from the coronavirus developed “robust” levels of B cells and T cells (necessary for fighting off the virus) and “these cells may persist in the body for a very, very long time.” This is just one of many examples, I thought I’d put it in here for reference.

Furthermore, we must keep in mind that the COVID-19 has a 99.95-99.97 percent survival rate for people under the age of 70, and 95 percent for people above that age.

The Takeaway: There has been wide scale disagreement amongst global citizens about the measures being taken with regards to COVID-19. On one hand, greater control, health surveillance and centralized power is being pushed in accordance with keeping people ‘safe’ from a virus with a very high survival rate. On the other hand, people are feeling as though their personal experience and everyday view of this virus and what health effects it is really causing don’t line up with the extreme measures. We have a split in our global community whereby many citizens’ desires and will are not being represented by the government and their decisions, and they feel as though by not participating in extreme measures, they will lose access to living life to the fullest. Furthermore, lockdowns may be responsible for more deaths than COVID.

Can we truly accept that controlling everyone’s lives and what they can and can’t do is the best thing to do with an extremely low mortality virus? Does this indicate the level of fear we have towards life? The issues with our general health? If the worry is straining health care systems, are we seeing the limitations of how our rigid social infrastructures can’t be flexible and maybe it’s time to look at a new way of living within society? Perhaps a new way built on a completely different worldview?

Things clearly aren’t as black and white as government and mainstream media is making them out to be, this is quite clear as we see a great deal of division among people, doctors and scientists. On top of this, there is an extreme amount of censorship taking place on science and opinions that oppose government and mainstream narratives. When this is the case, I believe it becomes even more clear that the correct thing to do would be for health authorities to simply make recommendations rather than impose mandates on the population.

“Pro-Vaccine” Internal Medicine Doctor Explains Why He Won’t Take The COVID Vaccine

CE Staff Writer 6 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. Suneel Dhand, an internal medicine physician based in the United States explains that vaccines aren't required if one has acquired antibodies from infection, which, according to him, are much more effective than the vaccine.

  • Reflect On:

    Is the vaccine as safe and effective as it's been marketed to be?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

What Happened: Dr. Suneel Dhand, an internal medicine doctor with a hefty following on YouTube makes on thing clear, and that’s the fact that he supports and believes in routine vaccinations, as well as recommends them to all of his patients. According to him, “vaccinations have been amazing” for humanity, and while this belief is shared by many, I believe it’s important to point out that it’s also strongly opposed by many, and that includes a wealth of scientists and doctors. That however is another longer and deeper discussion.

In one of his most recent YouTube posts, Dr. Dhand explains why he’s on the fence about taking the COVID vaccine. He explains when it comes to any type of illness, if people have antibodies for it, he or any other doctor at his clinic never administers a vaccine.

I’m not aware of any vaccine out there which will ever give you more immunity than if you’re naturally recovered from the illness itself…If you’ve naturally recovered from it, my understanding as a doctor level scientist is that those antibodies will always be better then a vaccine, and if you know any differently, please let me know.

Vaccine expert and Harvard professor of medicine Dr. Martin Kulldorff recently tweeted that, “After having protected themselves while working class were exposed to the virus, the vaccinated Zoomers now want Vaccine Passports where immunity from prior infection does not count, despite stronger evidence for protection. One more assault on working people.”

There are multiple studies hinting at the point the professor makes, that those who have been infected with covid may have immunity for years, and possibly even decades. For example, according to a new study authored by respected scientists at leading labs, individuals who recovered from the coronavirus developed “robust” levels of B cells and T cells (necessary for fighting off the virus) and “these cells may persist in the body for a very, very long time.” This is just one of many examples. There are studies that suggest infection to prior coronaviruses, which prior to COVID-19 circled the globe infecting hundreds of millions of people every single year, can also provide protection from COVID-19.

Keep in mind, we are talking about a virus that has a survival rate of 99.5 percent for people under the age of 70, and that the number of people who have been exposed to COVID is estimated to be a great deal higher than those who have tested positive. This is true for many other similar viruses, including other coronaviruses which circle the globe every single year and infect hundreds and millions of people.

Why This Is Important: Why is this important? Because it calls into question measures that are threatening to take away the freedoms of people who refuse to take the vaccine. Vaccines may be required to travel, go to certain restaurants, concerts, enter certain public buildings and so on.

Kulldorff and Dr. Bhattacharya, a physician and professor at Stanford Medical School explain,

The idea that everybody needs to be vaccinated is as scientifically baseless as the idea that nobody does. Covid vaccines are essential for older, high-risk people and their caretakers and advisable for many others. But those who’ve been infected are already immune. The young are at low risk, and children — for whom no vaccine has been approved anyway — are at far less risk of death than from the flu.

Vaccine passports are unjust and discriminatory. Most of those endorsing the idea belong to the laptop class — privileged professionals who worked safely and comfortably at home during the epidemic. Millions of Americans did essential jobs at their usual workplaces and became immune the hard way. Now they would be forced to risk adverse reactions from a vaccine they don’t need. –

How have we come to a point as a society where these measures can be put in place when they go against the will of so many people? How can we call ourselves a democracy? Wouldn’t it be better if recommendations were made instead of using authoritarian-type of measures? If you take the vaccine, should you not be comfortable with the fact that I haven’t, given the fact that you have and you believe it is safe and effective? If that’s the case, what do you have to worry about if you are protected? (Related CE article on Herd Immunity)

If you are hesitant about taking the vaccine, you’re not alone. There is a growing amount of hesitancy among many doctors and scientists. You can read the top four reasons many people, doctors and scientists are refusing to take the COVID vaccine, with specific examples and science, here.

The Takeaway: It’s hard to know what to do, or what action steps can be taken when so much information is not presented by mainstream media. This is a shame because mainstream media is a perception control hub for the masses. If certain information is not presented there, odds are the majority of people are not going to be aware of it. If controversial ideas are simply labelled as a “conspiracy theory” then people will not even entertain the idea that these controversial ideas may be true, no matter how much evidence actually lies behind it. There are multiple examples, like clinically proven alternative treatments for COVID, or example. Despite many of them being evidence based, that evidence and information will never be presented by mainstream media or acknowledged, and if it is acknowledged it’s deemed a conspiracy theory.

Again, this is one of many examples and it leads to society being unable to have appropriate conversations about controversial issues. Many people are simply unaware of certain information as we’ve come to rely on our television screen and government to give it to us.

So, what’s the solution? Independent research is one, but more work really needs do be done in the area of emotional regulation. I find people have a hard time accepting information that challenges what they believe, simply because the implications are quite large and in some cases the information may completely change their entire worldview. It’s quite easy to say “the government wouldn’t do that” or “if that were true everybody would know it,” but this simply isn’t the case.

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of .” – Edward Bernays  Propaganda, 1928
