Four Questions That Need to Be Answered in 2020 to Solve the Mystery of UFOs

Listen to “E219 Four Questions That Need to Be Answered in 2020 to Solve the Mystery of UFOs” on Spreaker.

Article by Jasper Hamill                             January 6, 2020                            (metro.co.uk)

• We’re currently living in a golden age of ufology. In the 20th century, anyone who saw mysterious objects in the sky was dismissed as a crank or a fraudster. But that changed in December 2017 when the New York Times revealed the existence of a shadowy US government project called the ‘Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program’ (AATIP) which gathered information about ‘unidentified aerial phenomena’, i.e.: ‘UFOs’. In the most famous of three Navy videos released, Navy pilots from the USS Nimitz carrier group off of San Diego chased a “Tic Tac” shaped UFO through the skies.

• While no one has come forward to claim that these UFOs are anything besides top secret experimental military craft by an Earthbound nation, the Navy did file US patents last year for ‘mass-reduction’ technology resembling anti-gravity used for propulsion. And the AATIP research investigated wormholes, invisibility cloaking, warp drives and high energy laser weapons.

• Former UK Ministry of Defence UFO investigator, Nick Pope (pictured above), told Metro that “the UFO phenomenon has come out of the fringe and into the mainstream”. “Expectations are high that 2020 will bring further bombshell revelations.” But it may be information overload for some in the UFO community. So Pope has offered four questions that, if answered, would clear up much of the current confusion in UFO circles.

• First: What is the US Government’s current ‘best assessment’ of the objects depicted in the 3 US Navy videos? Instead of asking government officials ‘what these objects are’, they should be asking what is the government’s ‘best assessment’ of these mysterious craft based on various meetings? Even if it is wrong, they are on the spot to give some type of assessment.

• Second: What’s the truth about the ‘metamaterials’? We know that the ‘To The Stars Academy’ and Bigelow Aerospace had possession of so-called ‘metamaterials’ recovered from UAP (or UFOs) that had been sent by researchers over the years, or recovered by ‘governmental sources’. Also, the US Army signed a development agreement with To The Stars Academy to study these metamaterials. Will the Army reveal the results?

• Third: Why is the Pentagon walking back on its earlier admission that AATIP investigated UAP? Initial statements about the AATIP Pentagon UFO program described it as an effort to assess advanced aerospace threats to the United States “including anomalous events”. In May 2019, a Navy spokesperson confirmed that AATIP “did pursue research and investigation into unidentified aerial phenomena”. But in a more recent statement, a Pentagon spokesperson stated that ‘AATIP was not UAP related’, directly contradicting the former Pentagon AATIP point man Luis Elizondo, who said “AATIP was a 100% UFO program”. In fact, a January 2019 DIA letter to Congress listed the studies generated by AATIP which included anti-gravity, invisibility, stargates, warp drive, and wormholes. We have one part of the government saying one thing, while another says something else. This needs to be sorted out.

• Fourth: What’s the status of Congressional interest in all this? The public doesn’t know what’s been discussed in closed meetings regarding UFOs in the Armed Services Committee, the Intelligence Committee and the Homeland Security Committee. We don’t know what is being discussed in Senate and House subcommittees, or what documents made have been generated and made available to the public. And we don’t know whether these Congressional inquiries will evolve into formal public hearings or not.

 

We’re currently living in a golden age of ufology.

In the 20th century, anyone who saw mysterious objects in the sky was dismissed as a crank or a fraudster.

But that changed almost exactly two years ago when a bombshell article published in the New York Times revealed the existence of a shadowy US government project called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) which gathered information about ‘unidentified aerial phenomena’ (UAP).

This secret programme gathered information on at least three sightings of aircraft travelling at impossible speeds which were recorded by US airmen or military personnel.

In the most famous incident revealed during the uncovering of AATIP, two Navy pilots chased a ‘whitish oval object, about the size of a commercial plane’. This ‘Tic Tac’ UFO was observed off the coast of San Diego in 2004 and followed by two by jets launched from the USS Nimitz.

Since this report, details of the strange and almost unbelievable work carried out by AATIP has slowly leaked into the public domain. And in that time, Metro has worked closely with Nick Pope, a former Ministry of Defence UFO investigator, to cover all the revelations.

Now he’s set out four questions which need to be solved in order for us to solve the UFO mystery once and for all.

He told Metro: ‘We’ve recently passed the second anniversary of the New York Times story revealing the existence of the Pentagon’s AATIP (Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program) initiative, and in those last 2 years the UFO phenomenon has come out of the fringe and into the mainstream.

‘Expectations are high that 2020 will bring further bombshell revelations, but it’s difficult for the UFO community and the wider public to navigate this complex story. There’s information overload, with so much data that most people struggle to identify the parts of the story that are not just interesting, but important.

‘To help people focus on the key issues, I’ve used my insider knowledge of having run the UK government’s UFO project to identify four critical questions. The answers would clear up much of the confusion.’

Of course, it’s worth remembering that we have no official explanation of the sightings yet. The advanced aircraft could be experimental flying machines built secretly by the US Government or even one of its enemies. Last year, we uncovered a patent granted to the US Navy for an exotic aircraft which used ‘mass-reduction’ technology to reduce its mass and lessen inertia (an object’s resistance to motion) so it can zoom along at high velocities.

Although we don’t know if the patented tech was used in a real aircraft, the invention was so advanced that it resembled the anti-gravity mechanisms found in science fiction movies.

AATIP researchers also investigated wormholes, invisibility cloaking, warp drives and high energy laser weapons during a probe into UAP.

UFO Society Claims To Be In Contact With Gods From Space

Listen to “E218 UFO Society Claims To Be In Contact With Gods From Space” on Spreaker.

Article by Tom Wood                             December 29, 2019                            (ladbible.com)

• The Aetherius Society was founded by Dr George King who claimed to have been contacted in 1958 by an advanced extra-terrestrial being called Aetherius. The being told King that he’d been ‘chosen’ and was given a command: “Prepare yourself, you are to become the voice of interplanetary parliament.” Dr King became the primary point of human contact for the Aetherius Masters until his death in 1997.

• Aetherius Society members claim that through yoga, Dr King was able to raise his consciousness to a level where extra-terrestrial beings could communicate through him – sometimes through telepathy, sometimes through direct channeling. The recordings and transcriptions of such messages from a variety of alien intellects are an important part of services held by the society.

• Mark Bennett attended his first Aetherius service at the age of 16. Over the past twenty years he’s risen to the level of International Director. Bennett admits that all of this may seem strange – especially to those with a lower spiritual understanding. Like all religious societies, a leap of faith is required for full understanding. “[T]he truth is so elevated that most people can’t get their heads around it.”

• One of the ‘Cosmic Masters’ messages proclaimed, “There will shortly come another among you, he will stand tall among men with a shining countenance. This one will be attired in a single garment of the type now known to you. His shoes will be soft-topped yet not made of the skin of animals. ….He will approach the Earth’s leaders, they will ask of him his credentials and he will produce these. His magic will be greater than any upon the Earth, greater than the combined materialistic might of all the armies. …They who heed not his words shall be removed from the Earth.”

• Bennett explains: “So, …at some point, an extra-terrestrial being will come to Earth … possibly in some kind of vehicle like what we might term a flying saucer.” “He will have great psychic powers. He will not age. When it says he will stand tall among men, that’s probably literally he will be really tall. … (possibly) around seven foot (tall). He will demonstrate great powers, as much as is necessary.”

• “From that point onwards,” Bennett continues, “people who continue to break the laws of God – for example, killing each other and warfare, hording massive amounts of wealth whilst others are starving – that will no longer be allowed to continue.” These people won’t be allowed to reincarnate onto this planet. “They will reincarnate onto another younger planet so that the only people left here will be those who are willing and able to build a new age upon Earth.” “Those who are reincarnated elsewhere aren’t being punished, it’s just the only way for them to make it. It’s a natural sorting, it’s spiritual evolution.”

• Bennett admits there’s a lot to take in. Aetherians believe that the Earth itself is a living goddess being that eventually ‘will have to express her true spiritual nature.’ When the Earth’s vibration raises, our own vibrations must rise as well in order to survive here. “Cosmic Masters will come to prepare those who may live in harmony with the Earth goddess, who have a chance of making it.”

• “All the other planets in this system are populated entirely by superior alien life forms known as Cosmic Masters,” claims Bennett. These Cosmic Masters want to be involved with us but can’t until we can reach a higher plane of spiritual evolution. Cosmic Masters do not age or die, but rather they change their bodily form after a few thousand years. They are in effect, immortal beings. Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Lao Tzu, and St Peter were all advanced intelligence beings from other planets. They have great psychic powers, telekinetic powers, healing powers, and all the kind of psychic abilities. “They are extremely spiritual and have evolved beyond petty emotion and only do what is best, according to karmic law.”

• Bennett argues that the Aetherian faith that is more logical than other religions. “[A]ll of these other faiths don’t explain why,” he says. “It’s almost like God’s run out of patience.” “[W]hereas in The Aetherius Society we have the exact explanation, which is that it just spiritually has to (happen).”

• A big part of what The Aetherius Society does today is to harness and store prayer energy in a spiritual battery devised by Dr King. Followers recite prayers and mantras in a semi-circular arrangement around the battery, whilst one member stands next to it, acting as a conduit. Targeted prayer energy can be sent to victims and aid workers involved in earthquakes, landslides, and warzones.

• The Aetherius Society has thousands of members in temples all around the world. It only costs $52 per year to be a member of the society, and this includes a magazine subscription.

 

Like all good tales of discovery, this one begins in the pub.

The Golden Lion pub in Todmorden, in fact – a pretty, peaceful West Yorkshire town that brims with stone cottages, rolling countryside and a pace of life that harks back to simpler times.

          Dr George King

This pub is not your average boozer though. It does things differently since being taken on by the local community. But I’m not here for that story. I’m here for the monthly Todmorden UFO Meet Up.

A couple of dozen people are here, convinced that the truth is out there. But that night’s speaker goes beyond flying discs and life on Mars. Much further.

Six weeks later I found myself sitting in The Aetherius Temple in Fulham with Mark Bennett, one of nine international directors of the society.
Bennett, along with the rest of the society, believes – among other things – that Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Lao Tzu, and St Peter were all advanced intelligence beings from other planets.

Oh, and that the Earth itself is a living goddess being. But more of that shortly.

The Aetherius Society was founded by Dr George King after he claimed to have been contacted in 1958 by a ‘Cosmic Master’ – an advanced extra-terrestrial being – called Aetherius and told him that he’d been chosen.

“Prepare yourself, you are to become the voice of interplanetary parliament,” was the message. In the society, this is known as ‘The Command’.
Dr King became the primary point of human contact for the Cosmic Masters until his death in 1997.

He was, the society claims, able to raise himself – through yoga – to such a level that extra-terrestrial beings could communicate through him, sometimes through telepathy, sometimes through direct channelling.

                    Mark Bennett

The recordings and transcriptions of such messages – from a variety of alien intellects – are an important part of services held by the society in present times.

After the initial contact, further commands followed for King.

One said: “There will shortly come another among you, he will stand tall among men with a shining countenance. This one will be attired in a single garment of the type now known to you. His shoes will be soft-topped yet not made of the skin of animals.

“He will approach the Earth’s leaders, they will ask of him his credentials and he will produce these. His magic will be greater than any upon the earth, greater than the combined materialistic might of all the armies.”

“They who heed not his words shall be removed from the Earth.

“This rock is now holy and will remain so for as long as the world exists, go ye forth and spread my word throughout the world, so that all men of pure heart may prepare for his coming.”

This is the statement that called the society into being. The belief that, one day, we might live as one with the aliens that inhabit our closest planetary neighbours.

Bennett explained: “So, what it means is that – at some point – an extra-terrestrial being will come to Earth openly, possibly in some kind of vehicle like what we might term a flying saucer.

“We don’t know where or when, but he will come as a cosmic master. He won’t be born among us, but it will be obvious to anyone with any sense that he is who he says he is.

“He will have great psychic powers. He will not age. When it says he will stand tall among men, that’s probably literally he will be really tall.
“There have been stories of them being around seven foot. He will demonstrate great powers, as much as is necessary.

“From that point onwards, people who continue to break the laws of God – for example, killing each other and warfare, hording massive amounts of wealth whilst others are starving – that will no longer be allowed to continue.

“So, then what will happen is that he won’t go around killing people or threatening them with weapons, but when those people die they will not reincarnate onto this planet. They will reincarnate onto another younger planet so that the only people left here will be those who are willing and able to build a new age upon Earth when we don’t have war, we don’t have poverty.

“Ultimately, we wouldn’t even have disease, although that would be further into the future.

“To create a heaven on Earth, basically.”

Evansville-Area Man Once Had a Chilling Close Encounter With a UFO

Listen to “E217 Evansville-Area Man Once Had a Chilling Close Encounter With a UFO” on Spreaker.

Article by Jon Webb                           December 27, 2019                               (courierpress.com)

• In June 1923, when Norman Massie was 10 years old, he was leading his family’s horses to the pasture at their farm in Mount Erie, Illinois (near Evansville, Indiana). “As I was closing the gate,” related Massie, “I looked back down the field and there was an object with lights all around it.” “… The machine was metallic and stood on three legs. The top was a dome with holes in it. The best way I could describe the top was it looked like melted glass.”

• When young Massie got within 50 feet of the thing, he noticed men milling around inside the ship, taking orders from a seated fellow they called ‘The Commander’. “I didn’t know what was going on until the end,” said Massie. “Then, one of the crew members told the Commander that the repairs had been made.” With that, the ship shot off the ground and zapped across the sky, disappearing forever. Massie estimates that the encounter couldn’t have lasted more than five minutes.

• Massie insisted that this UFO existed. He had seen it “with (his) own two eyes.” But Massie’s parents begged him not to talk about his UFO experience. ‘Keep the metallic ship — and the Commander — to yourself’, they told their son.

• While the US Air Force’s ‘Project Bluebook’ investigated 12,618 reported UFO sightings in the US during the Cold War between 1947 and 1969, and “solved” all but 700 of them, they made it clear that none of the sightings represented a threat to national security, and none of them had anything to do with aliens. So anyone claiming otherwise was labeled as “crazy”. This stigma has persisted until only recently.

• Massie remained silent until 1990 when he told his story to his son, a former colonel in the Air Force. The story didn’t surprise his son at all. Massie’s son told him that Air Force files were ‘full of pictures of UFOs’. Massie’s son accepted his father’s story as the truth.

• In 1998, Massie related his story to Len Wells, a writer for the Evansville Courier & Press. But Wells waited to publish a column about the sighting until after Massie died in 2004 at the age of 91. Wells knew that some people would accuse Massie of being crazy or a liar, or just some poor naïve man who had convinced himself that this ludicrous story from a childhood fantasy was real. But Wells says that Massie wasn’t that kind of guy. Massie worked in Wayne County schools as a teacher and basketball coach for almost 40 years. He also sold World Book Encyclopedias all over the Tri-State area. Massie’s son says that he heard Massie tell his UFO story many times, and “it was always the same. Never embellished from one time to the next.”

 

12,618.

That’s how many times the U.S. Air Force fielded sightings of unidentified flying objects between 1947 and 1969.

Back then, they were toiling through the infamous Project Blue Book — an effort to investigate the scores of UFO sightings that popped up all over America during the Cold War.

Military officials dismissed a huge chunk of them, sometimes conjuring ho-hum explanations such as the time-honored “weather balloon.” But by the end of the project, more than 700 reports of strange lights or shapes in the sky remained unexplained.

This month marks 50 years since the Air Force shuttered the project with a shrug. According to findings released on Dec. 18, 1969, the Air Force said none of the sightings represented a threat to national security. And, most importantly, none of them had anything to do with aliens.

That didn’t dissuade the true believers, of course — including the hundreds in the Evansville area who reported sightings of their own.

And it certainly didn’t change the mind of Norman Massie.

The long-time Southern Illinois teacher and basketball coach lived through a chilling close encounter decades before Project Blue Book was even a twinkle in the government’s eye.

The machine

Massie worked in Wayne County schools for almost 40 years.

He sold World Book Encyclopedias on the side, schlepping hardbound volumes to knowledge-hungry residents all over the Tri-State.

But if you punch his name into Google today, none of that will come up. Instead, he’s become infamous for something he saw when he was only 10 years old.

According to an old Courier & Press column by Len Wells that’s been pirated and shot into the weirdest corners of the Internet, Massie grew up in the tiny town of Mount Erie, Illinois, about 60 miles west of Oakland City.

And one morning in June 1923, he led the family horses into the pasture.

“As I was closing the gate, I looked back down the field and there was an object with lights all around it,” Massie told Wells in 1998.

“… The machine was metallic and stood on three legs,” he said. “The top was a dome with holes in it. The best way I could describe the top was it looked like melted glass.”

When he got within 50 feet of the thing, he realized he wasn’t alone. Men milled around inside the ship, taking orders from a seated fellow they called “The Commander.”

“I didn’t know what was going on until the end,” he told Wells. “Then, one of the crew members told the commander that the repairs had been made.”
With that, the ship shot off the ground and zapped across the sky, disappearing forever. Massie told Wells the encounter couldn’t have lasted more than five minutes — but it haunted him for the rest of his life.
