NASA Has Started The Process To Prepare Mankind For First Contact

NASA Begins The Grueling Task To Prepare Humanity To Meet Intelligent Extraterrestrials

According to reports, the US space agency NASA has already attracted 24 academics to a program at Princeton University's Center for Theological Inquiry (CTI) in New Jersey. The centre's major goal is to create "bridges of understanding" between academics from diverse disciplines, scientists, and politicians on "global challenges," for which it was awarded a $1.1 million NASA grant.

There are many sources that have debunked this story but by all indications, there is some merit behind the facts.  Common sense would dictate that NASA would soon rather than later start the process to preparing mankind for full disclosure.

Congress is Telling the World That UFOs/UAPs are Extraterrestrial

Congress implies UFOs have non-human origins

In Congress, where legislation is drafted, debated and enacted, clear and concise definitions are of paramount importance. As military aircrews increasingly encounter unidentified flying objects (UFOs), lawmakers recently made several striking revisions to the definition of “UFO.” Key among them: The explosive implication that some UFOs have non-human origins.

As first reported by researcher Douglas Johnson, a draft bill approved unanimously by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence rebrands UFOs as “unidentified aerospace-undersea phenomena.” Expanding the definition to include objects in space and under the oceans significantly broadens the scope of a muscular new office tasked by Congress with investigating UFOs.

The revised definition of “UFO” also includes “transmedium” objects which, according to lawmakers, “transition between space and the atmosphere, or between the atmosphere and bodies of water.”

In short, members of a key national security-focused committee believe that objects of unknown origin are demonstrating remarkably advanced technology by moving seamlessly between space, air and water. A report accompanying the legislation notes that “transmedium threats to United States national security are expanding exponentially.”

It strains credulity to believe that lawmakers would include such extraordinary language in public legislation without compelling evidence. Perhaps members have seen the classified sensor data that prompted former President Trump’s director of national intelligence to state that UFOs exhibit “technologies that we don’t have [and] that we are not capable of defending against” (among several other eyebrow-raising comments).

Most strikingly, Congress’s new definition of “UFO” excludes “man-made” objects.

Over the last seven decades, most UFO sightings involved “man-made” objects, such as misidentified aircraft, balloons, satellites or drones. Yet now, according to Congress, “man-made” objects “should not be considered under the definition as unidentified aerospace-undersea phenomena.”

More people are thinking about the origin of UFOs than ever before. 

Moreover, in a congressional directive, objects identified by the new UFO office “as man-made…will be passed to appropriate [Department of Defense and Intelligence Community] offices” for further analysis.

Congress, in short, is forcing the government to focus on objects that are not “man-made.”

Imagine that the new UFO office identifies a highly advanced drone flying in sensitive airspace. Under the draft legislation, regardless of the drone’s origin – be it Chinese, Russian or otherwise – the UFO office must immediately stop investigating and hand the case over to another government entity.

This implies that members of the Senate Intelligence Committee believe (on a unanimous, bipartisan basis) that some UFOs have non-human origins. After all, why would Congress establish and task a powerful new office with investigating non-“man-made” UFOs if such objects did not exist?

Make no mistake: One branch of the American government implying that UFOs have non-human origins is an explosive development.

It is also part of a remarkable shift in official attitudes towards UFOs.

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, many senior government officials believed that UFOs had “interplanetary” origins. But a series of still-unexplained encounters in the summer of 1952 sparked Cold War national security fears among defense and intelligence agencies. As a result, the U.S. government initiated a campaign to “debunk” and discredit all UFO sightings, no matter how credible. For decades, officials mocked any suggestion that UFOs had extraterrestrial origins.

Not anymore. Here are nine questions on UFOs and aliens that need to be asked of the US government  and military

In discussions and interviews, NASA administrator Bill Nelson suggested that UFOs encountered by military aircrews in recent years have otherworldly origins. (NASA, it should be noted, is proceeding “full force” on an unprecedented scientific study of UFOs.)

Former CIA Director John Brennan stated that UFOs might “constitute a different form of life.” According to James Woolsey, a fellow ex-CIA director, “something is going on that is surprising to…experienced pilots.”

As Top Gun-trained aviators remain convinced that they observed objects “not of this world,” director of national intelligence Avril Haines – America’s top spy – has not ruled out extraterrestrial origins for UFOs.

Moreover, former President Clinton refers reflexively to the high likelihood of otherworldly life in the universe when asked about UFOs. For his part, former President Obama speculated openly about contact with extraterrestrial life when asked about recent military UFO encounters.

After the customary giggles and smirks that still accompany any mention of “UFO” died down, both Clinton and Obama adopted a serious, matter-of-fact demeanor when discussing the topic. Clinton, in particular, scolded a television audience for laughing when a host asked him about UFOs. Of note, former presidents continue receiving the government’s most sensitive intelligence briefings.

Unsurprisingly, this remarkable shift in attitudes towards UFOs is fostering a broader, richer discussion of the phenomenon.

Comedian and political commentator Bill Maher, for example, recently theorized that UFOs are intentionally revealing themselves to fighter pilots.

He may be on to something. The geometrically reconstructed flight path of a well-known 2015 UFO encounter off the U.S. East Coast indicates that the object reacted as a Navy fighter jet attempted to sneak up behind it. Importantly, the object’s movement did not suggest hostility as much as a desire to be observed by the aircrew, which ultimately “flew right up to the thing.”

A UFO involved in the now famous 2004 “Tic Tac” incidents appeared on radar at the precise location of a rendezvous point known only to a small group of aviators and radar operators. Ten years later, two fighter jets nearly collided with a UFO hovering at the exact location and altitude of an entrance point to a military training range.

To Maher’s point, some UFOs appear to move and position themselves in ways that make their presence obvious to nearby military aircrews.

With Congress openly suggesting that UFOs have non-human origins, this behavior is particularly intriguing.

Has The Fermi Paradox Been Solved?

Where Are All The Aliens?

Italian-American physicist Enrico Fermi's name is associated with the paradox because of a casual conversation in the summer of 1950 with fellow physicists Edward Teller, Herbert York, and Emil Konopinski. While walking to lunch, the men discussed recent UFO reports and the possibility of faster-than-light travel. The conversation moved on to other topics until during lunch Fermi blurted out, "But where is everybody?"

The Fermi paradox is the conflict between the lack of clear, obvious evidence for intelligent extraterrestrial life and the incredibly high estimates for their existence.

The Fermi Paradox Revisited and Resolved?

In February 2020, four distinguished astrophysicists —Jonathan Carroll-Nellenback, Adam Frank, Jason Wright, Caleb Scharf— suggested that Earth may have remained unvisited by space-faring civilizations all the while existing in a galaxy of interstellar civilizations seeded by moving stars that spread alien life, offering a solution to the perplexing Fermi paradox. They concluded that a planet-hopping civilization could populate the Milky Way in as little as 650,000 years.

“It’s possible that the Milky Way is partially settled, or intermittently so; maybe explorers visited us in the past, but we don’t remember, and they died out,” says Jonathan Carroll-Nellenback, an astronomer at the University of Rochester and his collaborators in a 2019 study that suggests it wouldn’t take as long as thought for a space-faring civilization to planet-hop across the galaxy, because the orbits of stars can help distribute life, offering a new solution to the Fermi paradox. “The solar system may well be amid other settled systems; it’s just been unvisited for millions of years.”

Very long times between close-enough encounters with other habitable worlds

In an email to The Daily Galaxy, Carroll-Nellenback expanded on his conjecture that our solar system may have been unvisited for millions of years:

“If the nearest settled star system is currently out of range of our best technology (and future technology) – then we may have to wait for the movement of the stars themselves to bring other star systems closer. This can lead to very long times between close-enough encounters with other habitable worlds… approaching millions of years (or longer depending on assumptions about future technology and abundance of suitable planets).

“So the fact that we haven’t apparently been visited/settled in as far back as we can tell (10 Myr) doesn’t mean that we are necessarily alone in the galaxy – or that we have never been settled… It may just be that settlements are short-lived – and happen very infrequently because the rate of settlement is tied to the motion of the stars themselves. The density of systems (and presumably the density of systems that are suitable for settlements) increases as one moves inward in galactic radius – or in globular clusters – and in those regions – nearby settle-able systems may always be in the range – so one does not have to wait for stellar motions (or millions of years) between encounters.”

Or, as Seth Shostak, an astronomer at the SETI Institute thinks the Fermi Paradox is likely to be explained by something more complex than distance and time, that is, perception: “The click beetles in my backyard don’t notice that they’re surrounded by intelligent beings — namely my neighbors and me, but we’re here, nonetheless.”

“The sun has been around the center of the Milky Way 50 times,” noted Carroll-Nellenback and his collaborators Jason Wright at Penn State, Adam Frank of Rochester and Caleb Scharf of Columbia University. “Stellar motions alone would get you the spread of life on time scales much shorter than the age of the galaxy.”

According to research by Carroll-Nellenback and his colleagues, reported Rebecca Boyle for Quanta, their simulations show that natural variability will mean that some galaxies will be settled, but often not — solving Fermi’s quandary with a solution that avoids assumptions about the intent and motivation of any exo-civilization seeking to settle other planetary systems.

The team calculated the speed of an advancing settlement via probes of finite velocity and range to determine if the galaxy can become inhabited by space-faring civilizations on timescales shorter than its age. They included the effect of stellar motions on the long-term behavior of the settlement front which adds a diffusive component to its advance.

Humans must, therefore, be the only technological civilization in the galaxy.

Their models showed that the Milky Way can be readily ‘filled-in’ with settled stellar systems under conservative assumptions about interstellar spacecraft velocities and launch rates. We then consider the question of the galactic steady-state achieved in terms of the fraction of settled planets. They calculated a range of parameters for which the galaxy supports a population of interstellar space-faring civilizations even though some potential star systems are uninhabited.

The results point to ways in which Earth might remain unvisited in the midst of an inhabited galaxy, breaking the link between astrophysicist Michael Hart’s famous calculation that a single space-faring species could populate the galaxy within a few million years, and maybe even as quickly as 650,000 years and their absence, given the relative ease with which they should spread, which means they must not exist and that humans must, therefore, be the only technological civilization in the galaxy.

The Burden Of Proof Regarding UFOs Has Shifted

UFOs Are Real, Aliens Are Real and The Burden of Proof Has Shifted To The Government

Over the last few decades, people would randomly see UFOs and they would have to make a case to their family, friends and the authorities that they were telling the truth. Now so many unimpeachable military, government and civilian witnesses have come forward with so much empirical evidence the burden of proof has shifted to the American government and more specifically the top brass at the Pentagon. The burden of proof regarding UFOs / UAPs is no longer about their existence, now the questions become, what are they, where are they from and who or what is actually in them or controlling them? 

This great conversation between Joe Rogan and physicist Michio Kaju is well worth your time.

Full Congressional Hearing On UFOs With Intelligent Analysis - Disclosure

Full Congressional Hearings on UFOs / UAPs May 17, 2022 - UFO Disclosure Has Officially Started

This may not be the disclosure that the world wanted but it is the best we can hope for right now. Look at it this way, it is at the very least a slow and calculated start.

At 6 a.m ET Tuesday, May 17 2022, the US House Intelligence Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation Subcommittee shed some light on UFOs -- more formally known as unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAP -- with an open hearing.

Among those that presented information on these elusive objects was Ronald Moultrie, Undersecretary of Defense for intelligence and security, and Scott Bray, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence. 

Keep in mind this is the first formal hearing of which there will be many in the upcoming years. This hearing really set the stage and laid out the ground rules for future hearings. 

Here is Richard Dolans's take on the hearing - it is well worth watching.

Here is another take on the hearings from Coulthart and Zabel on Need To Know. 

Here is UFO Documentary Filmmaker Jeremy Corbell's very interesting take on the Hearing.
