In relation to an extraterrestrial presence, we may be dealing with “Hyperobjects” or “Multiple Objects.” For intelligently influencing an Intelligent Disclosure we would need to study Developmental Psychology and how human consciousness and subjectivity may deal with these objects.
Consciousness can be understood as the capacity to experience meaning, in fact, forms of meaning, including how to interpret them. The meanings of experience are normally related to objects of experience and, ultimately, even consciousness itself can be understood as an object of its own experience. Therefore, epistemology and ontology are not separate. Meanings can be of multiple kinds like sensations (pain, pleasure), sentiments/feelings, concepts, ultimate spiritual meanings…any form of meaning.
Leading a ‘sensible’ human adaptation to emergent, culturally and instinctively-challenging global issues requires a global form of integrative perspective-taking. This would be a level of interpretation capable of appreciating the importance of previous forms of interpretation in such a way that its possible to work with individuals interpreting reality under such previous levels. Moreover, it would be a form of interpretation that operates under a more extended experience of “meaningful time” in which for practical purposes the motivation to act in the present experience includes more of the past and of the future.
A creative, adaptive political and cultural acknowledgment of a globally active, advanced, non-human extraterrestrial presence on Earth is akin to intelligently dealing with culturally-challenging, global issues like “climate change.” These are issues which are so widely distributed in space and in time that only fragments of their meaning can be grasped simultaneously by most people. They trump traditional ideas about what a thing is in the first place. These issues are called “hyperobjects” by Timothy Morton, author of “Hyperobjects: Philosophy and Ecology after the End of the World” (2013). They require a completely different way of thinking and being in the world; quite likely post binary, connecting the subjective and objective realms of experience and inclusive of a type of science in which the non-physical consciousness, information and subtler forms of energy are used to modify physical matter.
On the other hand, integrative philosopher Sean Esbjörn-Hargens consider climate change and similar issues as “multiple objects.” This is an object that is objectively real but enacted through different subjective perspectives producing different meanings about it. I think that the “global technologically advanced, non-human, presence related to UFOs” can also be considered as a “multiple object.”
In the following article, Gail Hochachka studies the multiple responses to the issue of “climate change” under the aegis of Developmental Psychology. With a greater capacity for taking multiple perspectives, individuals may be able to deal with “hyperobjects” or with “multiple objects” more appropriately. Hochachka also shows how individuals operating under different interpretive levels of development “make meaning” including greater or lesser degrees of the present, past and future considerations accompanying different degree of abstraction and personal identifications.
I recognize the crucial importance that TTSA has played in moving the UFO subject into the mainstream, serving as a bridge between the highest levels of secrecy and the general public. However, it is time for many more serious cultural influencers to join a serious conversation regarding the “global, technologically advanced, non-human presence related to UFOs” beyond the influence of those in the know within military and intelligence circles who may only be able to interpret the situation under particular valid but partial limited perspectives. But we must rise to the challenge surpassing conventional modes of thinking.
If UAP intelligences are able to handle a more extended present, a present that includes more of the future and of the past in a non-linear way as Luis Elizondo suggested (as a personal opinion) during a MUFON interview (see the May 2018 edition of “The MUFON Journal”), their conscious capacity for doing so may be similar or above an integrative perspective-taking capacity. At the very least, they would also be able to adequately understand “hyperobjects” or “multiple objects” and think in global and species-wide terms in constructive and adaptive ways. And this would entail that eventually most of humanity would also need to rise to an integrative perspective-taking capacity.
“What if there were other species or even humans, where their understanding of the present, that optic, that spark, is maybe a little bit bigger? Maybe that optic is a little bit wider. Rather than being a point, maybe it’s a range. Maybe the understanding of the present isn’t a point, but it’s a range, and maybe there’s elements of the future and the past that are experienced as the present, and, therefore, what we perceive as linear space-time maybe others don’t. In fact, maybe these are things that have lived here forever, before us. Maybe, we share the space with them.” (Luis Elizondo).
Whether UAP or UFO intelligences pose an actual physical threat or not (and I surmise that most don’t), not rising to a capacity for understanding tantamount to dealing with “hyperobjects” may produce a cultural type of threat since we would not be able to adapt. We would need to adapt to cultures that may not want to conquer us as technologically advanced cultures did on Earth against less technologically developed ones. However, their understanding of complexity, consciousness, information, in a post-materialist way capable of transcending our spacetime-limited cultural traditions may be a threat if we are unable to rise to the challenge. It would require the greatest shift for human civilization since the taming of fire and the discovery of stone tools. What if (just like “hyperobjects” or “multiple objects”) “they” (the UAP or UFO intelligences) may be already participating inside of us as we may be participating inside of them? What if we can only understand this if we rise above a rigid, binary distinction between objectivity and subjectivity? Rigid distinctions between “us” and “them” would melt along with rigid distinctions between our “present” linear, interpretive experiences and non-existing pasts and futures.
Gail Hochachka’s study would also be useful to cultural leaders willing to influence the ways society may respond to a “global technologically advanced, non-human presence related to UFOs” inasmuch as its reality is becoming uncontroversial. With the aim of promoting a healthy, adaptive response to the technologically advanced, non-human presence in society, we need to study Developmental Psychology and how a greater number of individuals may intelligently or constructively relate to “Hyperobjects” or “Multiple Objects.” The good news is that human capacity seems to be able to reach an integrative level suitable for an adequate, intelligent cultural adaptation and flourishing under the new circumstances. We just need to implement ways to promote the massive psychological development of individuals up to that level. We need the political will beyond the hyper nationalisms in vogue today. Realistically speaking, only perhaps by being forced to deal with the extraordinary realities at hand will activate that political will.
Hochachka’s study can be useful to the intellectually serious disclosure activist, UFO researcher, experiencer or exopolitician since a “global, technologically advanced, non-human presence related to UFOs” can also be considered a “hyperobject” or as a “multiple object.” Again, understanding the human capacity to intelligently relate with such objects would be crucial for politically and culturally influencing or guiding a policy of “intelligent disclosure” in an adaptive, positive, constructive manner.

Article by Michael Moran July 7, 2019 (dailystar.co.uk)
• June 1947 was the height of the UFO craze. Kenneth Arnold had reported seeing nine unusual saucer-shaped objects near Mount Rainier, Washington and news of his sighting was reported around the world. It was with that news fresh in mind that New Mexico rancher, W.W. “Mac” Brazel, told local Sheriff George Wilcox that he’d found the wreckage of “a flying disc” on his property some 80 miles northwest of Roswell.
• Brazel and his son had come across something inexplicable that day – in his words, “a large area of bright wreckage made up of rubber strips, tin foil, and rather tough paper, and sticks”. Sheriff Wilcox advised a local Air Force colonel, who told his superiors, who put Intelligence Officer Major Jesse Marcel (pictured above, right) in charge of investigating the crash site and collecting the wreckage. Marcel issued a statement to the press. On July 8, 1947, the Roswell Daily Record’s front-page headline read ‘RAAF Captures Flying Saucer On Ranch in Roswell Region.’
• A month earlier, however, on June 4th, 1947, a huge balloon designated NYU Flight 4 lifted off from Alamogordo Army Airfield to a height of 40,000 feet as part of Project Mogul, a top-secret project run by the US Army Air Force to detect Soviet nuclear tests. This is what crashed on Mac Brazel’s ranch.
• Or was the crash, as some claimed, an experimental Nazi “stealth bomber” that the Soviets had captured, filled with genetically-altered children, and deliberately crashed in America on Stalin’s orders in order to sow fear and panic? Or was it the work of a sinister cabal of Jesuit priests who have anti-gravity aircraft and artificial hybrid humans? Or was it the fallout from a firefight between Grey aliens and the US Delta Force in tunnels under New Mexico? Or the unsuccessful test flight of a captured UFO from the base at Groom Lake known as Area 51?
• No. It was a surveillance balloon. Roger Launius, former curator of space history at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. told Smithsonian Magazine: “Apparently, it was better from the Air Force’s perspective that there was a crashed ‘alien’ spacecraft out there than to tell the truth. A flying saucer was easier to admit than Project Mogul, and with that, we were off to the races.”
• So the Roswell crash wasn’t anything as exciting as an extra-terrestrial craft. The chance that the government could have covered-up an event of this magnitude, lasting 72 years, through multiple presidencies and administrations, seems extraordinarily slim.
• [Editor’s Note] Ah yes. This is the maturing of a long-standing government cover story, brought to you by none other than the Smithsonian Museum, a notorious Deep State bastion of secrecy and disinformation. The Deep State is getting worried that so many people are beginning to see through their ruse. They need to reaffirm the cover story to maintain their base of skeptics who are conditioned to automatically deny UFOs and extraterrestrials. Here, they employ all of the standard devices. They note the hysteria brought on by Kenneth Arnold’s claimed sighting just weeks earlier. They make the eye witness Mac Brazel seem like an unreliable idiot. They bring up the communist Soviet menace that America was defending itself against. They trot out several other notions just as ridiculous as a ‘flying saucer from Mars’. Then they turn to a historical expert – a curator for the Smithsonian – to confirm that the cover story is indeed the most plausible. ‘We didn’t want the Soviets to know about our secret eavesdropping balloon’. Anyone who chooses to buy this nonsense is predisposed to believing anything the government tells them. But more and more folks are waking up to the fact that the elite Deep State government is in it for themselves, and not the people.
On July 8, 1947 the Roswell Daily Record’s front-page headline read ‘RAAF Captures Flying Saucer On Ranch in Roswell Region.’
The story began a few weeks earlier when rancher W.W. “Mac” Brazel was driving across his property some 80 miles northwest of Roswell with his son.
The pair came across something bizarre and inexplicable that day. It was, in Brazel’s words, “a large area of bright wreckage made up of rubber strips, tin foil, and rather tough paper, and sticks”.
Brazel noted the unusual wreckage but left it alone, not returning to the site until July 4.
It was the height of the UFO craze. In June 1947 Kenneth Arnold had reported seeing nine unusual saucer-shaped objects near Mount Rainier, Washington and news of his sighting was reported around the world.
It was with that news fresh in his mind that Brazel confided to local Sheriff George Wilcox that he might have found the wreckage of “a flying disc”.
Wilcox advised a colonel at the local air force base, and the news worked its way up the chain of command.
Intelligence officer Major Jesse Marcel was put in charge of investigating the crash site and collecting the wreckage.
When this was done, Marcel issued a statement to the press. On July 8, Marcel’s statement was on the front page of the Roswell Daily Record, underneath that famous headline.
The story contained this earth-shattering sentence from Marcel’s release: “The intelligence office of the 509th Bombardment Group at Roswell Army Air Field announced at noon today, that the field has come into the possession of a Flying Saucer.”

Hollywood’s long love affair with all things Extraterrestrial continues into the present tense with two new films scheduled for release in the near future. Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones are heading Ad Astra (“To The Stars”) which will be on movie screens in a couple of weeks () while Natalie Portman will take her own “trip” to outer (and inner) space soon with her latest, Lucy In the Sky.
Seeing the promotions of these star powered new releases made me think of how many movies we have seen emerge from film studios intent on appealing to the public’s fascination with the subject.
Many of the leading cinematic productions of all-time have been related to ETs, space exploration and possible conflict with alien beings desiring to communicate and/or destroy Earth and its inhabitants.
The following is a brief survey in no particular order of some top Hollywood flicks with their “Stars” who have been sent To The Stars……on film:
The Martian (Matt Damon); Gravity (Sandra Bullock); Interstellar (Mathew McConaughey); Aliens (Sigourney Weaver); Blade Runner (Harrison Ford/Ryan Gosling); Elysium (Matt Damon); Star Wars; ET; Avatar; Star Trek; Solaris (George Clooney); Mars Attack; Men In Black (Will Smith); The X-Files; War of the Worlds (Tom Cruise); Aliens and Cowboys; Space Balls (Mel Brooks); Prometheus (Ridley Scott, Director); The Day The Earth Stood Still (Michael Rennie); Outland (Sean Connery); Signs (Mel Gibson); The Arrival (Amy Adams); Oblivion (Tom Cruise); Kubrick’s 2001; First Man; Apollo 13 (Tom Hanks); The Right Stuff; Hidden Figures; Sunshine (Danny Boyle Director.); Life (Ryan Reynolds); Captive Nation (John Goodman); High Life (Robert Pattison); and so many others.
One might include movies like the X-Men series by Marvel as space related as well as cartoons that have futuristic themes and characters from the Flintstones to Toy Story (Buzz Lightyear) and the Lego films.
How about sci-fi films like Ex Machina; Transcendence and The Passengers with Jennifer Lawrence or The Matrix and even Superman? I think they qualify, too.
Last year’s Best Film Oscar winner revisited the theme of reptilian (alien) creatures first addressed during the Cold War when The Creature from the Black Lagoon raised the same issues which were more dramatically portrayed in The Shape of Water.
I do not own a TV so am missing all the great shows about Ancient Aliens; UFOs; and similar topics on The History Channel; GAIA TV; the new To The Stars Academy portrayal of The Unexplained; National Geographic’s discussion of these issues and everything else I read about or see snippets of on the internet.
The process of inculturating society to accept the ET presence via films, TV and other media has accelerated in recent months. The New York Times has given the topic the imprimatur of legitimacy with reporting about Navy Pilots seeing Tic-Tac craft and other UFOs.
A former high level intelligence official, Admiral Wilson, had his notes about a crashed spacecraft released and Bob Lazar has reemerged into the public eye with references to Area S4, alien craft and Element 115.
All this “soft disclosure” is occurring in the context of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon landing on July 20th. Libraries are filled with books and lectures on space topics and teens being encouraged to “launch into space” as part of a summer reading program.
It appears a concerted effort is being made while President Trump promotes his Space Force project and his plan to be back on the Moon by 2004. He also talked about UFOs with George Stephanopoulos and Tucker Carlson on Mainstream News.
I doubt there is anything accidental about this process. Whatever the case, Hollywood is playing its part by using its biggest stars to promote a To the Stars agenda for us Earthlings. Ad Astra indeed!
