Everything We Learned About (Probable) Aliens in 2017

• 2017 marks the most convincing year yet for the belief that life must exist beyond our planet. Believing in extraterrestrial is no longer reserved for conspiracy theorists in tinfoil hats. Nearly half of humanity believes aliens are out there, according to a recent study.
Here are five stories that prove it’s only a matter of time before we meet our celestial neighbors:

• 1. Scientists keep finding Earth-like planets – In 2017 there were dozens of discoveries of earth-like “Super Earths” contained within a planetary “Goldilocks zone” where conditions are just right for water to exist.

• 2. Reported UFO sightings are at their highest ever – A George Mason University doctoral student found that UFO sightings have hit an all-time high and that most of the sightings come from the US. Since the first recorded UFO flew over Portugal in 1905, there have been at least 104,947 sightings. Annual sightings have spiked from about 5,000 in 1980 to about 45,000 in 2010.

• 3. Life may already be hanging out in our own solar system – NASA scientists revealed that ice planets, like Pluto and Neptune, could harbor life deep beneath their icy surfaces. Their moons could have enough gravitational pull to create energy beneath the planet’s surface – generating heat and allowing a sub-surface ocean to exist.

• 4. NASA hired someone to protect us from aliens – In August, NASA posted a job listing for a ‘planetary protection officer’ to make sure that spacecraft and astronauts don’t contaminate other worlds and don’t bring back anything that could contaminate our own. The job pays between $124,406 and $187,000 and is only one of two full-time posts in the world. The applications closed on August 14th and there’s been no update on who landed the gig.

• 5. The Pentagon has receipts – In December, the Pentagon released footage of Navy F/A-18F ‘Hornet’ pilots off the coast of California tracking a glowing white orb rotating while the pilots try to figure out what they’re looking at. Cmdr. David Fravor, one of the pilots who saw the UFO, said, “It was a real object, it exists and I saw it.” It resembled a white Tic Tac and was “something not from the earth.”

 

The truth is probably already here.

The evidence that aliens exist has been slowly mounting for decades and 2017 marks the most convincing year yet for the belief that life must exist beyond our planet.

And believing in the extraterrestrial is no longer reserved for conspiracy theorists in tinfoil hats. Nearly half of humanity believes aliens are out there, according to a recent study, and in June, the European Space Agency signed off on a $668 million mission that will hunt for other life forms 932,000 miles into space. Meanwhile, scientists continue to be baffled by a bunch of mysterious signals that keep emanating from faraway galaxies.

Here are five stories that prove it’s only a matter of time before we meet our celestial neighbors.

1. Scientists keep finding Earth-like planets

Scientists have long presumed that if we’re going to find life on other planets, we’re going to find them in the “Goldilocks zone” — spots throughout the universe where conditions are just right for water to exist.

The intergalactic search for our neighbors grew more promising in 2017 with dozens more “super-Earth” discoveries.

And even though we don’t yet have the technology to reach these planets, 2017’s “super-Earths” have included:
• Wolf 1061c: Discovered in January, located 14 light years away

• LHS 1140b: Discovered in April, located 40 light years away

• Ross 128b: Discovered in November, located 11 light years away

• K2-18b: Discovered in December, located 111 light years away

In June, NASA’s Kepler telescope found 10 “Goldilocks-zone” planets and in October, the telescope found 20 more “hiding in plain sight.”

“Are we alone?” Kepler scientist Mario Perez asked at a news conference following NASA’s June discovery. “Maybe Kepler today has told us indirectly, although we need confirmation, that we are probably not alone.”

2. Reported UFO sightings are at their highest ever

In February, a doctoral student found that UFO sightings have hit an all-time high and that most of the sightings come from the US.

Sam Manafort, who’s studying Human Factors and Applied Cognition at George Mason University, crunched numbers from the National UFO Reporting Center. In his report, he found that since the first recorded UFO flew over Portugal in 1905, there have been at least 104,947 sightings.

But the number of yearly sightings has spiked dramatically from about 5,000 in 1980 to about 45,000 in 2010. In the US alone, there are 2,500 sightings per 10 million people — something Manafort attributes to the fact that most of the US has access to the internet.

Most of the sightings have come from the West and Northwest, an area that lines up with America’s “UFO highway” — a latitude line across the U.S. that a pair of sibling alien hunters believes is an entrance for extraterrestrial spacecraft.

The duo, whose book “37th Parallel” is being made into a movie, state that during years-long travels across the US, the most bizarre paranormal phenomenon took place along the 37th latitude line.

This line stretches from California through Nevada, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky and across to Virginia.

3. Life may already be hanging out in our own solar system

Pluto might have been demoted from a planet to a dwarf planet back in 2006, but the icy world could be holding a lot more than hurt feelings.

In November, NASA scientists revealed that ice planets, like Pluto and Neptune, could harbor life deep beneath their icy surfaces, thanks to their moons.

Dubbed Trans-Neptunian objects, these celestial bodies might benefit from tidal heating. This means that these icy planets have moons with enough gravitational pull to create energy beneath the planet’s surface — which generates heat and allows a sub-surface ocean to exist. The findings were published in Icarus.

“These objects need to be considered as potential reservoirs of water and life,” Prabal Saxena of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center said in a press release. “If our study is correct, we now may have more places in our solar system that possess some of the critical elements for extraterrestrial life.”

A separate study published in May suggested that Pluto, Saturn’s moon Enceladus and Jupiter’s moon Europa may have life due to a different process known as radiolysis. And in December, the American Geophysical Union reported that tectonic activity on Europacould be feeding life to Jupiter’s icy moon.

4. NASA hired someone to protect us from aliens

In August, NASA posted a job listing that quickly went viral.

The space agency was looking to hire a planetary protection officer — someone in charge of making sure that spacecraft and astronauts don’t contaminate other worlds and don’t bring back anything that could contaminate our own.

“NASA maintains policies for planetary protection applicable to all space flight missions that may intentionally or unintentionally carry Earth organisms and organic constituents to the planets or other solar system bodies and any mission employing spacecraft, which are intended to return to Earth and its biosphere with samples from extraterrestrial targets of exploration,” the job description stated.

US Navy Pilot Who Flew Close to UFO Discloses: A Technology That’s “Not From This World”

by Arjun Walia          December 21, 2017          (collective-evolution.com)

• For the first time in history the United States has released official footage of a real UFO – referring to the recent cockpit video showing an encounter between two Navy F/A-18 Super Hornets and an unknown “tic tac” object – apparently one of multiple objects travelling against 120 mph wind at a speed faster than the jet interceptors.

• Within the mainstream, this is new information and has never before received this type of serious inquiry and revelation.

• The pilot of one of the F/A-18 Super Hornets, David Fravor, states, “As I got close to it, probably within a mile to half a mile, it rapidly accelerated to the south and disappeared in less than two seconds…It had no wings…there’s no roters (like a helicopter)…this was extremely abrupt like a ping pong ball bouncing off the wall it would hit and go the other way and change directions at will. And then the ability to hover over the water and then start a vertical climb from basically zero up towards about 12000 feet, and then accelerate in less than 2 seconds and disappear – it is something I had never seen in my life.” (see five-minute video of former Navy pilot David Fravor below)

• When it comes to information sharing, mainstream media and the government have always used, distorted and completely changed information to shape the perception of world events such as 9/11. This is why it’s important to exercise caution and critical thinking. Is the existence of UFOs being used for an ulterior motive the same way “weapons of mass destruction” and terrorism was used to push political global elitist agenda?

[Editor’s Note] This UFO video and accompanying information comes from Tom DeLonge and his group of former CIA, US Air Force, and Pentagon officials now calling themselves ‘To The Stars Academy’. In a December 24, 2017 article by Michael Salla in Exopolitics.org, Dr Salla points out that Tom DeLonge’s 2016 “fiction-based-on-fact” book, Sekret Machines, downplays any existence of extraterrestrials, but attributes both the United States’ and Russia’s development of anti-gravity propulsion technology to the reverse-engineering of advanced Nazi German technology. Dr Salla suggests that this recent DOD disclosure may be a “limited hangout” partial disclosure, setting things up to eventually identify the tic tac UFO as Russian in order to obfuscate the government elite’s existing and far-reaching Secret Space Program, and to fuel a new round of anti-Russian (and anti-Chinese) hysteria in the United States to induce massive expenditures for the construction of a new anti-gravity fleet of spacecraft to counter this new Russian technology.

 

The US Department of Defense recently admitted to running, tracking, monitoring and sending military jet pilots to intercept UFOs. Although they claim the program ended a few years ago, insiders from within the Pentagon, including the former director of the program, Louis Elizondo, say the program is still in operation today.

Regardless, for the first time in history the United States has released official footage of a real UFO. The video shows an encounter between two Navy F/A-18 Super Hornets and an unknown object. This has hit multiple mainstream media platforms, and it’s concerning because it’s been more than a decade and there are now millions of pages of documents from military, governments and intelligence agencies detailing hundreds, if not thousands of UFO encounters.

These encounters have had multiple factors in common, one being the fact that they can travel at speeds no known air-craft in the world can. Secondly, they perform maneuvers that no known air-craft can perform, and last but not least, jet interceptors, when approaching the vicinity of the object, commonly experience critical instrumentation (weapons and electronic equipment) failure.

This may be new information within the mainstream, as it’s never received this type of serious inquiry and revelation before, but for those who have been researching this subject for a long time, this type of thing is a common occurrence, and the most shocking footage that’s been held by the Department of Defense and governments of this world is, most likely, a lot more eye opening.

That being said, the incident below is also quite extraordinary. This is one of multiple objects from the video, which was travelling against 120 mph wind at a speed faster than the jet interceptors.

The one this pilot is describing is a glowing white bright object, approximately the size of an airplane. He also mentions seeing two other smaller objects which came out of the bigger one.

“As I got close to it, probably within a mile to half a mile, it rapidly accelerated to the south and and disappeared in less than two seconds…It had no wings…there’s no roters (like a helicopter)…this was extremely abrupt like a ping pong ball bouncing off the wall it would hit and go the other way and change directions at will. And then the ability to hover over the water and then start a vertical climb from basically zero up towards about 12000 feet, and then accelerate in less than 2 seconds and disappear – it is something I had never seen in my life.”

The pilot’s name is David Fravor.

How we Tend to Think Exopolitically

On our Intimate Psychological Perspectives and how we Treat the UFO and ET Contact Phenomena

Our most intimate perspectives about reality influence our exopolitical responses; for instance, whether we deify, condemn, reject or embrace evidence and an actual ET-multidimensional presence. As exopolitically aware individuals we need to become aware of these psychological dynamics in order to attempt to respect all these partially correct ways of understanding. This becoming aware would be a meta-understanding of the ways our perspectives possess, limit and free us.

How we think and the exopolitical decisions we are inclined to make once ET reality is progressively acknowledged depends on our capacity to embrace reality in various more or less inclusive ways. This idea is based on Integral Theory.

The manner how we also respond and relate to the UFO and contact phenomena and to anything which we encounter in this world (or any other world) depends on what we can manage in our consciousness. And consciousness (here understood as a capacity) can increase so that we don’t end up being unconsciously possessed by the objects of reality we encounter. Of course, this also applies to exopolitics.

The UFO and ET encounter experiences, as well as other otherworldly phenomena, enhance our consciousness capacity to handle more of reality without denial, suppression, repression, selective cognitive bias, applied either in a personal or in a social context together with all the other self-identity protection mechanisms. This applies to those suppressing the information and protecting our ignorance and the rest of us somehow participating in the same.

Fortunately, these multi-world, multi-reality contact experiences also enhance our appreciation of the precious fact that living entities connect to the most beautiful intimacy. We need these multi-world experiences to change and learn to act sensibly and to live together; to adapt to a much needed greater reality so as to survive as intelligent beings in mutual harmony with all forms of life.

According to the predominant evolutionary perspectives in our self-identities, attachments, and capacities for awareness, more advanced ETs (capable of manipulating our reality limits more effectively) could be interpreted as 1) Powerful, magical deities, part of (natural) intelligent forces-beings all around us and capable of controlling these forces; 2) ETs as deities/gods or rejecting them as deities/gods in order to defend our attachment to other deities/gods or defend our exclusivist version of God; 3) ETs as rational, mathematical, physical and genetic engineers, advanced and precise, but not interested in emotion or spirituality; 4) ETs as essentially equal space brethren needing us as we need them; 5) ETs as all of the above. The evolution of perspectives
 
Perspectives 1-4 tend to be mutually exclusive. Perspective 1 is a blurry blend of material and spiritual experiences as part of a single reality. It may be comfortable with what we call the otherworldly but is not keen on discriminating and analyzing. Perspective 2 is highly exclusivist as ETs may be considered a friend or foe according to our religion and doctrinal beliefs. Perspective 3 is highly skeptical of anything beyond material proof and requires concrete and socially accepted verification from “experts.” It is focused on external material verification, discrimination and analysis partly as a backlash against the first two perspectives. Perspective 4 feels discomfort against hierarchical differences and seeks equality: Thus, it feels discomfort against perspectives 2,3 and 4. Only perspective 5 may be inclusive and comprehensive enough to be useful in understanding the range of experiences associated with the experiencer and UFO phenomena.
