In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A recently published paper by Physicist Dr James Benford in the Astronomical Journal hypothesizes that newly discovered near-Earth objects (there are many thousands) might be a hub for extraterrestrial 'probes' to monitor the human race.

  • Reflect On:

    Given what's been disclosed, and what's being disclosed about life on other planets and intelligent life perhaps visiting our planet, and life that has been visiting for a long time, is this theory really "out there?"

Are we alone in the universe? It’s one of the most important questions of our time, a question whose answer has huge implications for the human race, and truly leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. The general scientific consensus within the mainstream world is that no, we are clearly not alone and there is definitely, not only life, but intelligent life elsewhere in the universe.

On the other hand, we have a great deal of information that has yet to hit the mainstream alluding to the fact that we, or at least some of us, know for a fact that we are not alone, and have been privy to the evidence suggesting that we have been visited in the past, and are being visited now.

This evidence comes in the form of witness testimony from astronauts like Dr. Edgar Mitchell, for example, who has told the world on multiple occasions that deep within the Department of Defense and the Military Industrial Complex, it’s well known that we are being visited and have been visited, and that a massive cover-up has been on going for a number of years. Dr. Brian O’Leary is another great example of an astronaut who has spoken out. There have been multiple insider leaks, as well as academicians and hundreds of high ranking military personnel from around the world who have also said the same thing.

It’s Virtually Mainstream

In the mainstream, it’s well known that the militaries of the world have had encounters with UFOs, objects that travel at tremendous speeds and perform maneuvers that defy our understanding of aerodynamics. Christopher Mellon, who served 30 years in the federal government and was Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary for Intelligence from 1997 to 2002 and in security and information operations from 1998 to 1999 published a highly credible Washington post article that detailed a number of UFO encounters with the military. This has been corroborated by millions of pages of declassified documents, electro-optical data and more for decades.

Louis Elizondo, a former high ranking Department of Defense official and part of the TTSA academy that released multiple videos of UFOs from the Navy (which the Navy recently confirmed were real) has said that he believes these objects are extraterrestrial, but officially, they’ve purposefully stayed away from this question because a lot of people have “feelings” towards it.

Many believe the current mainstream UFO disclosure is being used the same way terrorism has been used–as some sort of ulterior motive agenda where they are taking a real phenomenon and manipulating it for their own benefit. That remains to be seen, but many believe they are going to use and perpetuate a threatening type of narrative that doesn’t really exist, in order to justify a more heightened national security state, or to weaponize space. You can read more about that possibility here.

Are We There Yet?

Having been a researcher in this and other fields for over a decade, it’s quite clear that we can’t really trust any information that comes from establishment media mouthpieces. That being said, I believe that we are and have been visited and that there is ample evidence to come to that conclusion. It’s also known that there has been a long and deliberate campaign of ridicule and denial that has suddenly ended. The current presentation from mainstream media is a complete 180 degree flip from years past, where what we saw mostly was shaming and ridiculing of the subject, despite the fact that “everything” seems to be in a “process of investigation both in the United States and in Spain, as well as the rest of the world.” (General Carlos Castro Cavero, 1979, source)

“It is time for the truth to be brought out… Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense… I urge immediate Congressional action to reduce the dangers from secrecy about Unidentified Flying Objects…” (Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter (First Director, CIA, 1947-1950) (source)

Apart from all of the information above, you can go into indigenous lore, ancient Greek lore and much more that detail stories of beings from other worlds visiting ours. For example, Richard Wagamese, one of Canada’s foremost authors and storytellers from the Wabaseemoong First Nation in Northwestern Ontario, writes:

“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)

There are many such stories. The truth at the end of the day is that “there is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations.(Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee (source))

Again, is any of this proof of an extraterrestrial presence? No. We have proof of a strong UFO presence via radar trackings, videos, and public disclosure. As Dr. Brian O’Leary says, there is a lot of evidence to suggest that “we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time.”

Are Newly Discovered “Co-Orbital Objects” Extraterrestrial Probes?

If you’re willing to entertain the idea that we are being visited, and have been visited for a very long time, this begs the question, where are they? Based on my research, it’s not far fetched to hypothesize that these intelligent beings, and there might be many, are not quite interested in contact with the human race at the present moment and prefer their presence to remain unknown to us, or at least disclosed discretely.

Disclosure of this type of reality, in my opinion, is happening and will happen to each individual in a different way. One day, we will all come to know we are not alone, and when we do we will perhaps manifest a ‘contact’ situation. But right now, it’s happening in several ways, be it individual contact, whistleblowers, or information about UFOs etc. It’s a process.

Physicist Dr James Benford, a member of SETI, recently published a paper hypothesizing that we are perhaps being monitored. The study was published in the Astronomical Journal.

There are many who share this belief, including former Senator Mike Gravel, who said in an interview that ‘Something is monitoring the planet, and they Are monitoring it very cautiously.’ I personally believe that our race has been known about for a very long time and we are indeed being monitored by an extraterrestrial presence. Why? Well, perhaps the planet is more important than we are. Perhaps we are a threat to others and the planet? There are a number of different scenarios one could hypothesize.

Dr. Norman Bergrun, a scientist and engineer who was part of NASA’s voyager program and worked at NASA for decades at the Ames Research Centre,  made it a clear point in his book, “Ringmakers of Saturn” to emphasize that these objects (which are intelligently controlled, according to him, by extraterrestrials) have probably been around much longer than we have. He also states that if there was any ill intent towards our planet, something probably would have happened by now .He also worked at Lockheed Martin where he managed the Polaris missile tests. Unfortunately, he recently passed. I was lucky enough to receive a copy of his book from one of his family members.

I share the belief that if there was any ill intent or that the ET presence represented some sort of threat, something would have already happened by now. Obviously, there is a lot that we don’t know. Benford’s abstract from his paper reads as follows:

A recently discovered group of nearby co-orbital objects is an attractive location for extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI) to locate for observing Earth. Near-Earth objects provide an ideal way to watching our world from a secure natural object that provides resources an ETI might need: materials, a firm anchor, concealment. These co-orbital objects have been little studied by astronomy and not at all by SETI or planetary radar observations. I describe the objects found thus far and propose both passive and active observations of them by optical and radio listening, radar imaging and launching probes. We might also broadcast to them.

There are tens of thousands of near Earth objects of unknown origin and composition that are constantly being discovered. This is nothing new, and if Benford is right, sending some type of probe or monitoring device would be a great way to keep an eye on our civilization.

Speculations

When astronaut Story Musgrave was talking about intelligent extraterrestrial races, he said that if they got their ‘stuff’ together, with regards to morals, cooperation and the collective advancement of their species, they would be capable of great things. He said that there were “trillions” of them that are doing “star travel.” (source). What would happen if we mastered star travel? It wouldn’t seem to be out of the realm of possibility that we would insert probes to monitor different worlds we came across for curiosity reasons? Scientific purposes? Who knows?

As far as we knows there could be guardians of the Earth!

We are truly in a tiny box, perhaps in our infancy and having the same perception of what’s happening around us as an ant crossing the street that does about planet Earth.

With regards to these “Co-orbitals,” as discussed in the paper. they are objects that orbit the sun at about the same distance that Earth does. They’re basically going around the sun at the same rate the Earth is, and they’re very close by. Benford stated that extraterrestrials may have ‘bugged’ these co-orbitals while he was at a conference in Houston last year. He makes some very interesting points and observations in the paper, and ends off explaining how these objects should be subjected to more study and observation.

Again, this kind of stuff isn’t new. Dr. Norman Bergrun, mentioned above, shared evidence of strange objects that are present in our Solar System that, according to him, are undoubtedly intelligently controlled, or even intelligent themselves. He shared pictures from NASA and the Voyager mission to Saturn (which he was a big part of) of very large UFOs seen hovering nearing Saturn. You can see that picture and read more about it here.

Researchers at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics believe that an odd cigar-shaped object discovered in our solar system last year could be an alien craft intentionally sent close to earth. You can read more about that story here.

When it comes to Benford’s paper, he ends off with a general discussion in the form of points made below:

An overall reason to look closer to Earth is that we haven’t seen anything in the rest of the solar system. And we haven’t seen anything communicating from the nearby stars out to about 100 light years.

The basic fact is we do not know alien logic, alien instinct, alien intention or anything else about them.

 The civilization that sent the probe may be very long-lived, meaning that individuals may live much longer than we do or that they are in fact AI’s. If properly powered, and capable of self-repair (von Neumann probes), they could report science and intelligence back to their origin over very long timescales. Therefore, looking locally near Earth not only explores a new space, but also Deep Time.

To study these nearby objects changes the means of inspection from listening to the stars to astronomical diagnostics such as imaging and spectroscopy. This approach involves techniques well developed for the study of asteroids and planets. That means using other technologies and other institutions to pursue this search.

This possibility allows a local test of messaging (METI) prospects. We can construct messages and try them against nearby objects, thus circumventing arguments that we might be noticed by or encourage hostile forces in the 12 stars. The SETI and METI landscape is thus transformed into a local experiment. Many of the arguments against interstellar METI (e.g. drawing attention to ourselves) seem less compelling when it comes to attempted messaging of potential Lurker sites that are so close by, since such nearby Lurker will already know of us.

Civilizations would not need to be very close to the solar system to send a probe here in the last few centuries. Here are some numbers: Suppose a probe can be launched at 1/10th speed light, which is certainly something we have figured out how to do conceptually by either beam-driven sails (photon beams, neutral particle beams) or nuclear fusion rockets. Traveling over 300 years, such probes could reach us from 30 light years out. About 3000 main sequence stars lie within 100 light years, so plenty of stars that might have civilization.

For societies with time horizons beyond a century-long payoff, lower speeds like 0.01 c demand a millennium to take up residence and study Earth. Worlds that take even longer perspectives can use lower speeds and so lower their initial costs. Note that this implies that by searching locally, we extend our quest over both long distances in space and great spans in time, generalizing the entire SETI approach. Even alien societies that have ceased their interstellar interests or are even extinct can still tell us something, through their ancient probes.

The Takeaway

While we have to be wary of the kind of UFO disclosure that is unfolding in the mainstream media, we must nonetheless conclude that we are getting so much closer to the disclosure of the extraterrestrial presence in and around our planet than ever before. If we see this as an intentionally careful, gradual process, governed by a collective intelligence higher than ours, it may become easier to have optimism about what is soon to come.

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.
