“Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. . . . We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time. . . . I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real.” – Doctor Edgar Mitchell, 6th man to walk on the moon.
As recent as 10 years ago, UFO and extraterrestrial researchers fell under the same category as those who believed in fairies but his topic has gained enough credibility today and is taken seriously. High ranking political, military and academic persons have been talking about it, especially in prestigious conferences around the world. Documents that were previously considered classified have been made open to the public and now this topic is permissible in the public domain.
Jacques Vallee, the notable co-developer of the first computerized mapping of Mars for NASA gave a lecture at the 2011 Global Competitiveness Forum. He has worked extensively at SRI International on the network information centre of ARPANET in the UFO/ extraterrestrial project. Another talk in the conference was by nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman on the theme of contacting intelligent extraterrestrials and learning from outer space.
The latest addition to the range of major influencers to talk about extraterrestrials is Elon Musk. He is the CEO and CTO of SpaceX and a revolutionary entrepreneur. He talked about extraterrestrials in the World Government Summit. These conferences decide how new innovations and technologies can solve the global challenges today.
Here is an excerpt from his speech:
“When I was a kid I was wondering, kind of, what’s the meaning of life, like, why are we here, what’s it all about? I came to the conclusion that what really matters is trying to understand the right questions to ask, and, the more that we can increase the scope and scale of human consciousness, the better we are able to ask these question
Some of those things are in the long term, having long term sustainable transport and sustainable energy generation, and to be a space-bearing civilization, and for humanity to be out there among the stars, and be a multi-planetary species. I think being a multi-planet species and being out there among the stars is important for the long term survival of humanity. . . . It creates a sense of adventure, and it makes people excited about the future.”
In this snippet he talks about super intelligent extraterrestrials somewhere in space, which is a hypothesis agreed upon by most. According to him, they’re already observing us but we are just not smart enough to realize it.
“Intelligent beings from other star systems have been and are visiting our planet Earth. They are variously referred to as Visitors, Others, Star People, ETs, etc. . . . They are visiting Earth NOW; this is not a matter of conjecture or wistful thinking.” – Theodor C. Loder III, Phd, Professor Emeritus of Earth Sciences, University of New Hampshire (source)
In a way Musk might be correct. They might be already watching us. But things are changing rapidly, and the public today are really looking to credible sources to believe it’s possible. Science Journals, video and photo footage have been published in too many places for us to deny all of this anymore. Dr Brian O’Leary, who is a former NASA astronaut and a professor of Physics said that there is “abundant evidence that we are being contacted, and that intelligent civilizations have been visiting for a very long time.”
Are people aware of this ground breaking discovery?
“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)
Movies and television shows bombard us constantly with stories of extraterrestrial invasions, and despite all of the evidence available, the fact that we are being and have been visited by extraterrestrials can be a scary thought, particularly given the way extraterrestrials are typically portrayed.
Because of the constant stories of ET invasions seen on TV, the fact that we can possibly be visited by them terrifies us the most. But that is essentially the fault of how outer space inhabitants have been portrayed in literature.
A massive disinformation campaign that has been running for decades has systematically covered up all the facts, adding mass ridicule for anyone who believed in it. The way UFOs are seen today reveals how easily the public can be swayed, and how rapidly our opinions can be changed by those who have ulterior motives.
“There are objects in our atmosphere which are technically miles in advance of anything we can deploy, that we have no means of stopping them coming here … [and] 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. That it behooves us, in case some of these people in the future or now should turn hostile, to find out what they are, where they come from, and what they want. This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee (source)
Even then, the fact that UFOs are one of the most searched topics on Google says that people still believe in the possibility of extraterrestrial beings.
What does Extraterrestrial contact really imply then?
Humanity is increasingly opening up to the possibility of a huge paradigm shift in consciousness. We are letting go of previously held beliefs about what is possible. When Musk mentions such ideas in his speeches, it further reinforces our belief in these impossible possibilities.
When we accept the fact that we might be visited by other beings, it opens up a whole new avenue of questioning in our historical religious and scientific beliefs. While there are individual incidents mentioned in the course of history, a mass revelation is still to be seen.
Another thing to think about is, whether it is a coincidence that the ET/UFO topic is gaining momentum right when we are seriously considering global cooperation. Is it possible that we humans have it in us to work together to be a united space faring race?
A ‘Spiritual’ Revolution
We are at the brink of another spiritual revolution, one that doesn’t have the negative implications religion has. Spirituality goes beyond converting people to a particular belief, but it’s rooted into the most ancient of histories- resonating with most of science that is emerging today.
Spirituality comes into the question of ETs because it will decide how we choose to greet these being when they finally step into our planet. This is where all the research and speculation for generations have led to. The world is waiting for a massive change in what we think and believe in, and ETs might be the final answer to all the questions that plague human existence.
