BlueLion,Skip the hypnosis. No one wants to bring back memories of being anally penetrated by extraterrestrials.
Sorta surprised that the release of the government's lukewarm "acknowledgement report" didn't make this thread.
An article about the 9-page report can be found at this link: https://nymag.com/intelligencer/article/pentagon-ufo-report-what-we-know.html
The full report: https://www.dni.gov/files/ODNI/documents/assessments/Prelimary-Assessment-UAP-20210625.pdf
The June 25th report broke down sightings into several categories: US tech, foreign tech, atmospheric phenomena, debris, and "other". They admitted they don't know what the other sightings were and had only 1 out of the 144 cases in the report be explainable by one of the first four categories.
I've read a number of theories about what these "other" phenomenon are and all of them are mind-blowing.
It's actually the most important story of our time. But since we can do nothing about it other than panic or disillusion people, the old evidence never makes the news to be combined with the new evidence.
My hope is that we would get some form of energy technology out of it. I don't believe that we have no recovered material. In fact I don't believe that we have no recovered bodies.
I will add that I think the energy technology to be had is some form of nuclear, and that is the problem. Nuclear can be used
It's hard to believe that the government, after 70+ years of looking at reports on this topic, have NO IDEA what these things are. I think SOMEONE there has a really good idea of what this is all about but isn't sharing with the public for various reasons.
Jaimungal has an upcoming AMA with Luis Elizondo, who is a fascinating listen.Check out some of the interviews on YouTube that Kurt Jaimungal does with Jacques Vallee and Kevin Knuth. Pretty amazing stories about encounters and recordings. And Avi Loeb at Harvard is starting the Galileo Project to capture images of UAPs. https://projects.iq.harvard.edu/galileo/home
Scientists are starting to take this topic seriously, as well they should.
I've seen a Jaimungal-Elizondo interview already- is this a Part 2? Kurt asks Lue how he thinks people would react if they knew what Lue knows about UAPs, and Lue's response was "somber", that they'd be re-evaluating humanity's place. Elizondo didn't go into specifics on what he meant.Jaimungal has an upcoming AMA with Luis Elizondo, who is a fascinating listen.
Hey, I just had an exam, and my urologist said, "You are great for your age!" ...sorry, I could not resist!It's the offseason and I think we need some interesting things to discuss.
My first link is a couple of years old (about a West Coast incident in 2004). I don't know if it was discussed here at the time.
I'm particularly interested in hearing from those who think UFOs are something other than alien spacecraft. Please offer a hypothesis that fits the evidence.
Here's a more recent (2015) incident that occurred off the East Coast:
And a New York Times article that some consider "disclosure" ...
Some Ufologists believe that the older incidents, before the digital age of being able to easily doctor photographs and video, provide more compelling evidence. To me some of the strongest "evidence" is the witness testimony -- when those witnesses are independent, a large group, and seeing essentially the same thing from different angles. This would be true of the Chicago O'hare incident, the "Phoenix Lights," and some others outside of the U.S., such as the Westall UFO(s) at an Australian school. What's interesting about the school incident is that "men in suits" arrived shortly afterwards to confiscate any photography and silence/threaten witnesses.
Here is some discussion on Westall by Richard Dolan (with his hot, much younger wife), beginning at about 37 minutes. There are some other compelling incidents discussed in this program, but with fewer witnesses.
Some of the better "testimony," in my opinion, is in not just the account of the incident, but in the human reactions that occurred during the incident, as well as the emotions when revisiting the topic afterwards. Let's be clear. There is a difference between testimony and evidence. For testimony we are left to decide whether it is credible based on witness factors -- stature, reputation, motives, number of witnesses, reactions, etc.
I do have opinions on some of the more recent UFO researchers that you might find appearing in online videos and documentaries. My opinions cover a range, from those I see as outright shysters to those that I think get some things right and others wrong. With Dolan I am mixed. I'll leave further comment in this area to a later post.
The bottom line is that there is considerable evidence that supports the notion that we are not the most intelligent form of life currently inhabiting this planet. That should be very compelling in itself. The problem is that this topic tends to get dominated by charlatans and scammers. If we include those charged with debunking the evidence, it's no wonder that the issue never gains the traction that it deserves. In some ways, the forces at work are very similar to those that sustained the False Narrative at PSU.
Another example of why scientists, media, govt, etc. need to start taking this more seriously. Really think all these credible first-hand accounts from trained observers are part of a disinformation campaign, hallucinations, equipment malfunctions, or weather balloons?
HERES YOUR PROOF I HAVE SEEN THEM TWICE ANYONE THAT DOESNT THINK THEY ARE HERE IS AN IDIOT!!WAY MORE PLANETS HAVE LIFE THAN JUST EARTH!!
August paper suggests formation of intelligent live in the universe is considerably less likely than previously theorized......
Exactly. Other life forms don’t have to be carbon and oxygen based. They could be silicon based. Just look at Los Angeles!I'm not going to read that article as I am not a physicist, but what does the mechanism of oxygenation on earth have to do with the probability of other "life" in the universe? We don't even know if other life forms have similar chemistry.
Does the article make a probability claim about other life? If so, perhaps you could quote the article.
Maybe they are smart enough to find a short-cut.I'm not an expert on this by any means, and when I look at the Egyptian pyramids and Stonehenge and the Mesoamerican pyramids, an extraterrestrial source of knowledge and capability makes sense....but when considering how far away potentially inhabitable planets are, and the light years of travel required to reach any of them, I can't imagine any realistic possibility of UFOs....
