UFOs (doesn’t always mean extraterrestrials), extraterrestrials, and life on other planets have been a hot topic for decades. These are the topics that receive some of the highest search engine results every single year on the internet, which is no surprise, as we’re naturally inclined to ponder about the unknown, or, as more people are starting to find out, the known.

At the end of 2017, the United States government officially admitted to the existence of UFOs with the release of previously classified footage of two navy pilots scrambling to intercept one (a UFO), with more footage on the way.  Luis Elizondo, a former high ranking military intelligence officer who was in-charge of the Pentagon’s recently disclosed UFO program, made an appearance on mainstream national news to discuss the topic.

The video released showed an object travelling at a high rate of speed, and performing maneuvers that should be impossible based on our known laws of aerodynamics. The Pentagon released two videos of separate objects, and both of them were displaying maneuvers that no known man-made air-craft can perform.  In one of the videos, a smaller object was seen coming out of another, making three objects. When the pilots began approaching the object at a close range, both of them accelerated instantaneously (from an already high speed), and disappeared within seconds.

Louis made it a point to emphasize that this is something that’s been happening for a long time, and something that happens a lot. This has been made clear by hundreds of other high ranking personnel from within the military, several other fields, and the release of millions of pages of UFO documents from dozens of governments.

These documents are full of radar returns, visual confirmations and electrooptical data. The next question to ask is, who is the intelligence behind the wheel? I discuss that further in the article linked below:

It’s Official – We Now Know That UFOs or UAP are Real – So Are They Extraterrestrial or Not?

You can see some examples of more documents and instances in the article linked below:

This is What Happens When A “UFO” Is Tracked on Radar

When asked if he believed these objects are extraterrestrial, he stated that there is “compelling” evidence to suggest that we “may not be alone, whatever that means.”

“I will tell you unequivocally that through the observations, scientific methodologies that were applied to look at this phenomena, that these aircraft are displaying characteristics that are not currently within the US inventory, nor in any foreign inventory that we are aware of.”

He also made another strong point in the interview,

“We have deliberately stayed away from going down the rabbit hole of, who’s behind the wheel and what are their intentions, because a lot of people have a lot of feelings towards that, and are very emotional about that.”

The pilot, as with hundreds of others who have had the same type of experience, stated his belief that these objects are not from our world. 

This is precisely why, when bringing up the topic to friends or family, you may receive a bizarre look, or instantaneously receive “conspiracy theorist” allegations. The truth is, people still ridicule the subject, despite the fact that it’s a very serious issue. Perhaps the quote below from the first CIA director sheds some light as to why,

“Behind the scenes, high ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.” Former head of CIA, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, 1960 (source)

Apart from secrecy and ridicule campaigns, the idea that we may have been visited, and are currently being visited is becoming more of a reality, and the implications are far reaching. From science and technology, to human history, the nature of our reality, and more, this realization, if made, will change humanity forever and really open us up to a much broader view of reality, and touch upon all aspects of life.

It also conflicts with the belief systems of many. When a human being has a certain picture of the human experience in their head, and the way things are, when confronted with information and evidence that completely counters it is something hard to do. As a result, our mind hangs on to our current belief system, not willing to let go or even entertain the idea that what they previously thought, might not actually be true.

Information like this can cause a global mental paradigm shift for many people

So, let’s take a look at one aspect of life that might be affected, or not? Religion.

Comments on Religion

Religion is fascinating to say the least. This is because, on one hand, we have multiple religions preaching the same message at their core, one of peace, love, trust, good-will, non-violence , and the “Golden Rule.” On the other, it’s not uncommon to come across several contradictions between them all, and various interpretations of the same religion, which has created even more division within religious movements.

It’s quite obvious that many of the core messages shared from religions resonate with billions of people, as they should, there are some golden messages and guidelines in there, which is why so many souls gravitate towards it.

What I also find very interesting is that, prior to the Roman Empire, the ancient cultures from around the world were predominantly “spiritual,” with the same core message, and the same guidelines for one to live their life. We also see similar ways of life prior to religion, a great example would be the construction of pyramids by ancient cultures around the world that had absolutely no contact with one another. The predominant theme in ancient spirituality is the fact that a large portion of our world is non-material, spiritual in nature, and it did not use fear as part of its preaching.

There was no fear of hell, or no ‘wrath of God’ waiting to come down on an individual for their wrongdoings, but rather a spiritual, non-material perspective, opportunities for growth, and a recognition that we are more than just our physical body, and that non-material ‘spiritual’ forces play an important role in what we call our physical material world.

It is yet another “faith” that preaches the good-will of Earth and our planet.

When religion was born, it seemed to be made by man, originating within the Roman Empire, a force that began conquering the world and eventually wiped out the last trace of spirituality that pre-dated religion, which was the indigenous wisdom of North America, something that was not contradictory to the teachings of global indigenous culture.

This type of religion killed, and forced it’s own beliefs onto others, and it’s something that seems to have been happening globally for a very long time.

Religion has now turned into a business, a place of brain-washing, a tool used to explain and justify war, which makes no sense at all and is completely contradictory.

A great modern day example would be the “Islamic State.” Today, it’s not a perspective that’s commonly expressed by mainstream media, but despite that, multiple professors, politicians and more have emphasized that the Islamic Sate, the group the United States and their allies claim to be fighting against, is actually a creation of the United States (and their allies) themselves. You can read more about that here.

Terrorism is not representative of Islam…Islam is just being used by those who wish to manipulate us.

This narrative has been emphasized by multiple people from within the field.  Jon Shelby Spong, a retired American Bishop, for example, told the world that that “religion is always in the control business, and that’s something people don’t really understand. It’s in the guilt producing control business.”

On a personal level, I believe religion is filled with much truth, real events and real historical figures. I also believe much of it is made by man, some of which has been changed to support the greedy interests of the powerful who wish to impose their way on others. Many aspects of religion are simply used as a means to an end, but not to really meditate, and inquire upon the mysteries of the universe, the origins of the human species, the meaning of life and the good-will of humanity. It claims to work for the good-will of all people, but seems to disguise itself publicly with the image of good-will while practicing deceit behind closed doors.

That being said, there are many different religions, and all are different. Some may be filled with lies, deceit and corruption, and others not. Again, this is why we may get so many different contradictions, they can’t all be true? Can they?

Then we have weird, strange type of phenomena that seems to be taking place under the name of God, one of many examples could Satanism within the Vatican.

This is why when it comes to the Religious interpretation of extraterrestrials, it’s important to take with a grain of salt. Instead of looking outside of yourself for answers, perhaps try looking within and seeing what your intuition tells you after examining a variety of sources, before and after religion.

How can a group of powerful religious Royals, from the time of Ancient Rome, completely take over the world and impose their views of reality on others? In ancient times, figures like Plato, and scientists who opposed the church later decades after the Roman Empire took rule were put to death.

Religion wiped out spirituality, ritualistic practices, our understand of the nature of the universe and even our ability to inquire or entertain alternate views of reality.

If you asked God about religion, I’m sure God would have no idea what it even is. I feel that religion, for the most part, does not represent God, but powerful mens greedy interests that capitalize on the tenderness and innocence of the human soul.

God and religion, in my opinion, do not fit in the same discussion, as I feel religion is simply man made, much of which comes from good intentions, and much of which does not.

Religion & Extraterrestrials

So, when it comes to religion, where does life on other planets fit in? “Spiritual” type of cultures, those that pre-dated modern religion like Atlantis, ancient Egypt, Summer and Babylon (to name a few) all make pretty good cases for being in direct contact with people from other planets. It’s even a common theme, and has been, throughout many indigenous culture traditions. Mysterious flying objects in antiquity are filled with many examples, you can see/read about a few of them here.

For example, Richard Wagamese, One of Canada’s foremost authors and storytellers from the Wabaseemoong First Nation in Northwestern Ontario writes how:

“My people tell of Star People who came to us many generations ago. The Star people brought spiritual teachings and stories and maps of the cosmos and they offered these freely. They were kind, loving and set a great example. When they left us, my people say there was a loneliness like no other.” (source)

If we look at modern day religion, the top three are no doubt Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism, although Buddhism is not considered a religion by many, given the fact that its origins alone predate modern day religion, similar to ancient Vedic scriptures, Greek Scriptures, Sumerian texts and more. You can see a few examples of that by referring to this article.

Buddhism has more of a spiritual undertone to it. And no, I personally do not believe spirituality is just another religion. That’s a discussion for another article that could also be quite lengthy.

In the article linked just above, you’ll find a link to is a video of Dr. Jacques Vallée, whose latest work includes a recently published analysis of 500 UFO cases from biblical antiquity t0 1879 before the development of the modern day industry. That was published in his book Wonders of the Sky. Vallée co-developed the very first computerized mapping of Mars for NASA. He is also noted for his work at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), where he helped create ARPANET.

Would Religion Collapse?

Would modern day religions collapse with the realization of extraterrestrial intelligence? That’s the common belief, but there is really no evidence to support that belief, which makes one wonder, where did it come from?

For example, in early 2010 a survey designed by Ted Peters, a professor at the Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, California, was put out titled The Peters ETI Religious Crisis SurveyHe and his colleagues interviewed 1300 people, which included believers from Roman Catholicism, mainline Protestantism, evangelical Protestantism, Orthodox Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. They hypothesis of the survey was that, “upon confirmation of contact between Earth and an extraterrestrial civilization of intelligent beings, the long established religious traditions of Earth would confront a crisis of belief and perhaps even collapase.

Here are some of the responses the survey received:

“Finding extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI), I believe, would be a profound and wonderful event.”

“Extraterrestrial religious beliefs and traditions will differ, perhaps greatly in some ways. However, they live in the same universe with the same God, and a similar array of religious responses and developments would likely have developed on their world.”

“Nothing would make me lose my faith, God can reach them if they exist.”

I believe that Christ became incarnate (human) in order to redeem humanity and atone for the original sin of Adam and Eve . Could there be a world of extraterrestrials? Maybe. It doesn’t change what Christ did.” (1)

8 years prior, a Roper Poll asked, “Would an announcement of extraterrestrial Intelligence precipitate a religious crisis?” The answer was a big “no.”

The survey concluded that most religious people would not have a breakdown in faith, or even fear any type of extraterrestrial contact.

Leaks made by Wikileaks’ Julian Assange, which included the disclosure of more emails connected to the Clinton Campaign. This time, it was John Podesta’s account, showing multiple emails from Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut, showing how Mitchell (1940-2016) had big plans, and big meetings set up.

 Edgar Mitchell was very active in moving the “disclosure” process by discussing the matter with various contacts inside of the White House and Pentagon, along with the Disclosure Project’s Dr. Steven Greer.

Here is one of the emails that was recently released by Wikileaks, and it mentions the Vatican:

“Dear John, As 2015 unfolds, I understand you are leaving the Administration in February. It is urgent that we agree on a date and time to meet to discuss Disclosure and Zero Point Energy, at your earliest available after your departure. My Catholic colleague Terri Mansfield will be there too, to bring us up to date on the Vatican’s awareness of ETI. Another colleague is working on a new Space Treaty, citing involvement with Russia and China. However with Russia’s extreme interference in Ukraine, I believe we must pursue another route for peace in space and ZPE on Earth. I met with President Obama’s Honolulu childhood friend, US Ambassador Pamela Hamamoto on July 4 at the US Mission in Geneva, when I was able to tell her briefly about Zero Point Energy. I believe we can enlist her as a confidante and resource in our presentation for President Obama. I appreciate Eryn’s assistance in working with Terri to set up our meeting.” (source)

Pretty interesting isn’t it? The Vatican has actually been quite open about extraterrestrial contact over the past few years, which means it’s followers will be the same way.

Monsignor Corrado Balducci, a longtime friend of Pope John Paul II and the Vatican’s leading exorcist, is one of multiple people from within the Vatican who has been very outspoken about extraterrestrials. On multiple occasions, he has stated that contact between humans and extraterrestrials has already happened.

“The existence of these beings is real. We can’t have doubts.” (source)

In 2005, Vatican astronomer Guy Consolmagno said that humankind is facing a future discovery of extraterrestrial intelligence. In 2008, Vatican chief astronomer Father Jose Gabriel Funes stated that the discovery of intelligent extraterrestrial life, and its existence on a planet other than Earth, doesn’t contradict their faith. You can read more about the Vatican and extraterrestrials in an article we published earlier, here.  There you will also find sources.

The fact that accusations of Satanism within the Vatican have been made, on a side note, is something important to be aware of.

Other faiths are the same way, if we look at Sikhism, a faith in which my family comes from, for example, just as our planet and life on it exist, so it does elsewhere in the universe as well.

Charles Missler, one of the world’s leading Christian ufologists, and a graduate of the US Naval Academy and Air Force, and holds a Master’s degree in Engineering from UCLA knows a lot about UFO’s.

“He is well-informed about their history, the cover-up, and specific cases. He knows about the testimony from astronauts, radar controllers, and jet pilots. He simply explains UFOs and aliens through the lens of Biblical interpretation as inter-dimensional beings that have a physical reality.” 

Christia ufologist Dr. Michael Heiser describes these as an “inter-dimensional (that is, spiritual) reality…one that can manifest in truly physical form, and not beings from another planet.” (1)

“Ultimately, many Christians will interpret a Disclosure announcement in light of the Book of Revelation, which discusses the Second coming of Christ, and a war in the heavens.

If we look in Chapter One of the Mormon Book of Moses, we find this statement:

“And wordls without number have I created; and I also created them for mine own purpose; and by the Son I created them, which is mine Only begotten. And the first man of all men have I called Adam, which is many. But only an account of this Earth, and the inhabitants thereof, give I unto you.”

According to this passage, God is telling Moses that there are other worlds and other people on those worlds.

When we look at ISLAM, which has 1.5 billion followers, like other religions, there is no clear firm stance on extraterrestrial contact. Perhaps the truth about extraterrestrials was taken by the Roman Empire, when the conquered the world and destroyed the beliefs of many, while trying to assimilate others to their own. Perhaps these sacred texts are locked somewhere away in the Vatican library? Who knows?

That being said, ISLAM, like other religions does imply an extra-dimensional reality, from which life forms come. That being said, at the global competitiveness forum, an interviewee interviewing Elon musks states that, according to ISLAM, humanities origins are connected to outer space, and we ourselves are in-fact extraterrestrial beings who inhabited this world. You can view that clip below.

The Koran does imply that God is “Lord of all the worlds.”

During the 1930’s Islamic Scholar Abdullah Yusuf Ali made the comment that, “It is reasonable to the millions of heavily bodies scattered throughout space.” (1)

There is also the concept of the jinn, these are beings, according to the Koran, that occupy other dimensions and parallel worlds, along with humans and angels, they are one of the three sentient creations of God. Jinn, like humans, have free will and can be both “good” and “evil,” the same way in which humans are.

If we look at Judaism, there are also references to other worlds. According to the Talmud, there are at least 18,000 of them, and according to one kabbalistic book, the “Sefer HaBrit,” there is even mention of a planet called Meroz, where extraterrestrial creatures exist. (1)

If we look at Buddhism, there will be no problems assimilating to extraterrestrial contact. Buddhists have long understood that life is present throughout our reality. The concept was taught by Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, more than 2,500 years ago. (1)

“ET’s, would be, essentially, no different than other sentient beings, i.e., they would have Buddha Nature and would e subject to karmic consequences of their actions.” 

Another wrote:” “As a Mahayanna Buddhist, with a worldview that includes in scriptures Buddhas and bodhisattvas from many different world systems, such news would not be shattering theologically, though of course institutions and practices might reverberate.” 

This type of reaction would also be seen in Hinduism, which stems from ancient Vedic teachings, which were closely in correlation with Buddhism.

Here is a great clip of the Dalai Lama expressing these sentiments,

What Would You Do If You Were An Alien Coming To Earth? How Would You Feel?

Our race does have a tendency to label things as ‘good’ or ‘bad,’ angel and demonic, so on and so forth…Perhaps we are not quite ready for contact, perhaps when we learn to view the human experience, as just that, without so many labels, without so much judgement and instant prejudice, we will be ready.

Instead of using labels, if we view our ‘negative’ and ‘bad’ experiences as opportunities, we would move forward much faster.

If I were an alien, I certainly would not want to make my presence known, as the human race, throughout history, has a tendency to reject that which is different or does not fit within the frame.  Just imagine how an intelligent alien would feel if they were instantly categorized as demonic.

Imagine, if if your grandchildren live in a time where we’ve mastered star travel, and come upon another plant that wants to vilify you for no good reason.

Personally, when I get confused I look to nature. In nature, you will find ‘good’ and ‘bad.’ You will even find ‘good’ and ‘bad’ among the same races, like humans and dogs. I am sure there are trillions of life forms out there having a physical experience, no different to us. Maybe we should drop all of the labels and interpretations, and approach it from a more neutral perspective.

That being said, UFOs were once a conspiracy theory, now they’re not. There is a lot of evidence showing that these craft are, at least some, extraterrestrial (evidence in an article linked earlier within this article), and based on knowledge that comes from the ‘inside,’ some of which may be false, there are all kinds of beings with all kinds of intentions.

For the most part, take comfort in knowing that we’ve probably been visited for longer than we know, and that if there were to be some sort of ‘attack,’ it would have already happened by now.

Melinda Gates Was Concerned About Her Husband’s Relationship With Jeffrey Epstein, WSJ Reveals

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Wall Street Journal is reporting that one possible reason for the divorce of Bill and Melinda gates may be due to his supposed relationship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

  • Reflect On:

    Did you know that elite child sex trafficking may be a real issue among certain circles? We are bringing attention to this recent story to bring awareness to this fact.

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.

Make sure you follow Collective Evolution on Telegram as we have no idea how much longer we will be on Facebook.

What Happened: Bill and Melinda Gates recently announced that they will be divorcing. They haven’t revealed the specific reason for their divorce, but the Wall Street Journal has reported that one source of concern for Ms. Gates “was her husband’s dealing with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, according to the people and a former employee of their charity, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Ms. Gate’s concern about the relationship dated as far back as 2013, the former employee said.”

Business Insider explains:

Sources told The Daily Beast last week that Bill Gates’ willingness to meet as early as 2011 with Epstein — who by then had already pleaded guilty to soliciting an underage girl in 2008 — “still haunts” Melinda Gates. According to the outlet, the couple met with Epstein in New York City at his Upper East Side mansion in September 2013. Sources told The Daily Beast that soon after the meeting, Melinda Gates told friends of her discomfort during the encounter. Several people close to the couple reportedly said she was “furious” over her husband’s relationship with Epstein. Bill Gates told The Journal in 2019 that he was not friends with Epstein. Documents reviewed by The Journal say that after The New York Times first reported in October 2019 that Bill Gates had met more than once with Epstein, Melinda Gates called her advisors multiple times.

According to the National Post, days before Epstein died in a New York Prison he named venture capitalist Boris Nikolic as a backup executor of his will. Nikolic had worked as a science advisor to Bill Gates. The Post goes on to mention that in an emailed statement at the time, “Nikolic told Bloomberg that Epstein had not consulted him about the will and that he had no intention to fulfill the duties.”

Nikolic is seen in the picture above on the left side of Gates. The others, from the left are, at the time, a senior JP Morgan executive James E. Staley, former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers, Mr. Epstein and of course Bill Gates.

This is the only other connection between Gates and Epstein that seems to exist. Gates met with Epstein in 2011, 2013 and 2018 it appears although no information as to why is available. Rumours related to philanthropy seem to be the reason but again, these meetings had occurred after Epstein was a convicted sex offender.

In 2014, multiple media outlets reported that police arrested  a Seattle man at the Gates’ mansion for allegedly collecting more than 6,000 child rape photos. Rick Allen Jones, reportedly employed as an engineer at the Gates’ home, is also accused of trading pornography images via Gmail. None of the activity Jones was involved in occurred at the Gates’ residence except for his arrest.

Why This Is Important: It’s no doubt odd that Bill Gates would meet with Epstein multiple times, especially after he was convicted as a sex offender. Perhaps these meetings were the only ones made public and there were more we don’t know about? Who really knows, we will probably never get the truth as to why they had this kind of relationship, if you can even call it that. We’ve seen the same thing with Prince Andrew, except Bill Gates doesn’t have any sexual offence accusations against him like Andrew does.

 Last year the former CEO of Reddit, Ellen K. Pao, tweeted that Ghislaine Maxwell “was at the Kleiner holiday party in 2011” but she “had no desire to meet her much less have a photo taken with her. We knew about her supplying underage girls for sex, but I guess that was fine with the “cool” people who managed the tightly controlled guest list.” After the tweet, Pao removed it and then made her profile private.

Maxwell, Epstein’s close associate is now on trial facing multiple sex offences and child sex trafficking charges, just like Epstein. It’s concerning that many people  seemed to be well aware of Epstein’s activities yet nobody really went public.

The Epstein saga, and all of the strange connections that go along with it are important because it highlights a very real problem that doesn’t seem to receive enough attention within the mainstream, and that’s the issue of supposed elite level child sex trafficking.

These kinds of rumours are quite prevalent among high ranking people, as a paper published in European Psychiatry details:

Research eventually led to the Franklin scandal that broke in 1989 when hundreds of children were apparently flown around the US to be abused by high ranking ‘Establishment’ members. Former state senator John W DeCamp, cited as one of the most effective legislators in Nebraska history, is today attorney for two of the abuse victims. A 15 year old girl disclosed that she had been abused since the age of 9 and was exposed since the age of 9 and was exposed to ‘ritual murder’ of a new born girl, a small boy (who was subsequently fried and eaten) and three others.

It’s a very deep issue, with countless examples of accusations and convictions involving high ranking people which include Vatican officials, Royal Family members, Prime Ministers, Presidents, politicians, Hollywood elite, financial elite and many more. You can read about more examples here if interested.

Sonia Poulton, a British journalist, social commentator, and filmmaker, has been investigating the dark web of pedophilia for years. Some of her research has been compiled into a documentary called “Pedophiles In Parliament.” You can access that here if interested.

We have conducted an interview with a survivor of elite child sex trafficking/slavery. You can access the full interview and start your free trial HERE on CETV, a platform we created to help combat internet censorship and allow us to continue to do our work and get the word out about various issues and topics.

The Takeaway: Much has come to light over the past few years regarding this issue, but if it is prevalent at the highest levels, how can it be stopped? If those with the power to stop this issue and the ones we approach to deal with this issue are involved, what steps can we take? Take Cardinal George Pell, for example, a high ranking Vatican official who was convicted of child sexual abuse. His charges were dropped and he was set free. It’s disturbing to contemplate the idea that Cardinal George Pell is or would be involved in such things, after all, he himself established The Diocesan Commission Into Sexual Abuse in 1996.

Perhaps some of those whom we view as idols, or gods and saviours are actually not what they seem? Perhaps it’s time for humanity to turn to itself instead of continually relying on big politics and powerful people to solve our issues. Perhaps that’s why they never get solved? Politics has become a cesspool of corruption and a system that does not seem to be adequate at dealing with many of the issues we face today, yet we continually turn to it for answers and permission. Given the amount of corruption within the system, the idea that sex trafficking is prevalent in some of these circles should come as no surprise.

The mainstream has failed to have appropriate conversations around elite level child sex trafficking and pedophilia, many people would consider it to be a “conspiracy theory” if you brought it up to them. It really goes to show how media sources have become a hub for disinformation and perception manipulation in many areas. It’s important to start having these discussions if we are going to make any progress with regards to solving it, regardless of how unbelievable it may seem.

Why Can’t We Question COVID’s Origins?

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.

Recall back to the beginning of the COVID pandemic and discussion were had about the origins of the virus. Was it naturally occurring, coming from an infected bat sold in a wet-market in China, or was it created in a lab and leaked whether on purpose or accidentally? At the time, the ladder was sharply considered a conspiracy theory, and if you ask most people today, inevitably including fact checkers, they will tell you this is true – COVID coming from a lab is a mere conspiracy theory.

But still today, many don’t agree with this hypothesis.

On May 3rd, journalist Nicholas Wade, a science writer who has worked on the staff of Nature, Science and, for many years, on the New York Times, penned an extremely lengthy piece on Medium called: Origin of Covid — Following the Clues.

In it he explores how the ‘debunking’ of the lab origins story came to be, and the stark conflict of interest associated with the letter published by the Lancet claiming the virus was naturally occurring. The letter was written by Dr. Peter Daszak, president of the EcoHealth Alliance of New York. His organization funded coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. This means Dr. Daszak would at least partly responsible for COVID leaking from that lab if it in was made there and in fact had leaked. Yet this stark conflict of interest was never claimed in the Lancet letter that became the political piece that encouraged the world not to consider lab origins.

As time has gone on, as Wade suggests, the evidence that COVID indeed originated in a lab continues to mount:

After all, the more months pass without the natural emergence theory gaining a shred of supporting evidence, the less plausible it may seem. Perhaps the international community of virologists will come to be seen as a false and self-interested guide. The common sense perception that a pandemic breaking out in Wuhan might have something to do with a Wuhan lab cooking up novel viruses of maximal danger in unsafe conditions could eventually displace the ideological insistence that whatever Trump said can’t be true.

Make no mistake, and I have to write this in or else we risk further demonetization and de-platforming, mainstream media and fact checkers will assure you COVID did not originate in a lab.

As I read through Wade’s extensive research into the origins of COVID, I began to see a possible pattern: the same ridicule and shutting down of scientific conversation regarding the origins of COVID that occurred throughout 2020 appears to be occurring right now when scientists and virologists question current vaccinations and roll out methods.

Multiple scientists have drawn questions about COVID vaccines, and they are only met with censorship and the label of “anti-vaxxer”, even when they are themselves pro-vaccine.

We had a discussion about this, and we also gave an inside look at how internet fact checking and Big Tech are being sure vaccine  story doesn’t get out. We wanted to give people an inside look at how our narratives, and financial well being as a company, is held hostage until we agree with change them at the behest of internet fact checkers.

    The UFO phenomenon may not only be indicative of extraterrestrial life, but perhaps intelligent life from here on our planet, perhaps in other realms or dimensions that are not always perceivable to our senses.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is the UFO phenomenon receiving extreme amounts of legitimacy within the mainstream after years of ridicule?

Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), now commonly known as Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAPs) have become a big topic of discussion within the mainstream as of late. We are talking about objects that have been photographed, videotaped, tracked on radar, and seen by high ranking military personnel as well as civilians on the ground and in air-craft. These objects perform maneuvers and travel at speeds no known man made piece of machinery can. They truly defy our understanding of aerodynamics and, and in some cases, physics.

The next discussion to arise is, are those manning these craft human or something else?

Based on my years of research, just as there was strong evidence for the existence of these objects decades ago when they were deemed a conspiracy theory, there is strong evidence now, and in my opinion, there is evidence these objects are not human made.

As far as credible sources that support this idea, Colonel Robert Friend, in his very last interview before his death, who was a director of Project Blue Book from 1958-1962, suggested that the U.S. Air Force knew what these objects were even at that time. The former director of the Pentagon’s UFO program, Lue Elizondo, recently gave an interview to the NY Post saying that he had a meeting with a very senior Department of Defense official who mentioned he knew the craft were not of human origin as well. Former Air Force Colonel Ross Dedrickson also claimed to have information that these objects were not human made, and from what he knew, the beings are benevolent, concerned about the well being of our planet.

I recognize not all people will consider these sources ‘credible evidence.’

Beyond these testimonies are things like documented cases of sightings or “contact” experiences. According to these cases, people report both benevolent and malevolent experiences, often linked to the UFO phenomenon.

So, if they are not human, what are they? The obvious truth is, we don’t know, but there’s no harm in speculating.

Are They From Here?

Plato once said, as documented in Phaedo:

And upon the Earth are animals and men, some in a middle region, others (elementals) dwelling about the air as we dwell about the sea; others in islands which the air flows round, near the continent; and in a word, the air is used by them as the water and the sea are by us, and the ether is to them what the air is to us.

The truth is, much of our “reality” isn’t even perceivable to our human senses. We can only see within a tiny frequency of the entire visible light spectrum. We have to use special equipment like infrared telescopes and more to see things that we otherwise couldn’t. Quantum mechanics and the emergence of post-material science has shown us that there are “invisible” parts of what we perceive to be our physical and material world that make up the vast majority of it. Some, like Plato, referred to this as the ether, or aether. Who is to say that life does not dwell in these realms? They exist all around us, perhaps some of these objects originate from there – or as you might say, right here on Earth.

Another interesting quote from ancient philosophy:

“And they allowed Apollonius to ask questions; and he asked them of what they thought the cosmos was composed; but they replied; “Of elements.” “Are there then four?” he asked. “Not four,” said Larchas,  “but five.” “And how can there be a fifth,” said Apollonius, “alongside of water and air and earth and fire?” “There is the ether,” replied the other, “which we must regard as the stuff of which gods are made; for just as all mortal creatures inhale the wire, so do immortal and divine natures inhale the ether.” “Am I,” said Appollonius, “to regard the universe as a living creature?” “Yes,” said the other. – The Life of Apollonius of Tyana, Philostratus, 220AD (source)

Even Rene Descartes proposed the theory that “space,” (what we perceive as empty space) is completely filled with matter in various states. There is evidence to suggest he was executed by the Church because his science entered into the realm of metaphysics.

Many ancient cultures have stories and texts which refer to ‘magical’ and ‘mythical’ lands that co-exist alongside our reality. Whether these places are actual physical places, or places that reside in ‘another dimension,’ for lack of a better term, has been the subject of great discussion within various material throughout the ages. These stories can be found in ancient Buddhism and Vedic philosophy, along with oral stories passed down from Native cultures throughout the world.

According to Paracelsus, a German-Swiss physician and alchemist (like Issac Newton) who established the role of chemistry in medicine, in his Philosophia Occulta, translated by Franz Hartmann: 

“Man lives in the exterior elements and the Elementals live in the interior elements. The latter have dwellings and clothing, manners and customs, languages and governments of their own, in the same sense as the bees have their queens and herds of animals their leaders.” The Secret Teachings of All Ages, An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, 1928, Manly P. Hall

What’s also interesting is that these objects are commonly observed entering or exiting our oceans. Sometimes when they “fly away” they don’t appear to fly away, but rather dematerialize. In other cases they are observed “taking off” at tremendous speeds.

The point is, there could be a number of different explanations, and chances are not all objects originate from the same source. It truly calls into question what we think we know about the nature of reality. And I feel we’re at an important time to question this curiously. Recall that there was a time when scientists, like Galileo, were condemned for the discoveries that they made and ideas they presented. Are we really any different today? How open are or minds to concepts of reality that don’t fit within the current framework of accepted knowledge?

One thought I’ve often had is that it can feel concerning to that topics like UFOs have to be presented in mainstream media before most will see it as legitimate. Footage has to be verified by the Pentagon, as it recently was, for the masses to realize that these objects are indeed real. Less than a decade ago the evidence for the existence of these objects was already very strong.  Yet we have to be told by government or mainstream media before the general populace can see it as real?

Does this highlight just how reliant humanity has become on these sources for information? What are the implications of that? As with so many geopolitical issues, it’s hard to trust mainstream media, or government for that matter, to get an accurate depiction of what’s really happening. This is why I am concerned that so many people rely on these sources when it comes to an honest depiction of the UFO phenomenon. Perhaps this phenomenon is one that requires a citizens initiative as well?

One thing to look out for with critical thinking is the US government’s suspicion that these objects are Russian or Chinese in origin. I believe this narrative is an effective to heighten the national security state, for no legitimate reason, while simultaneously controlling the extraterrestrial and/or other life hypothesis that goes with this phenomenon.

Perhaps they will paint these objects as a threat, even though the vast majority of the time these objects perform evasive maneuvers to avoid our own aircraft. We seem to be the ones chasing them.
