    UFO Redux

    Explosive UFO Report In NYT Mentions 'Off-World Vehicles Not Made On This Earth'

    Ed Mazza
    July 24, 2020, 1:55 PM Explosive UFO Report In NYT Mentions '''Off-World Vehicles Not Made On This Earth'''

    The Pentagon’s secretive UFO unit is going to make some of its findings public, The New York Times reported.
    And one consultant to the agency has briefed Defense Department officials of some highly unusual discoveries ― including items retrieved from “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth,” the newspaper said.

    The Pentagon has claimed it disbanded its UFO office, but it actually simply changed names and moved. A Senate committee report suggests it will be expected to make some information public every six months.

    The main goal isn’t alien spaceships, but rather something much closer to home: to see if confounding sightings ― including some by the military ― are actually advanced technology from rival nations.

    The Times report also hints at possible artifacts from UFO crashes, citing former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).
    “After looking into this, I came to the conclusion that there were reports — some were substantive, some not so substantive — that there were actual materials that the government and the private sector had in their possession,” Reid told the newspaper.

    Astrophysicist Eric W. Davis, who has been a subcontractor and consultant for the Pentagon, told the Times he briefed the Defense Department in March about the “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth.” He said he has examined some of the materials and concluded “we couldn’t make it ourselves.”

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) also indicated that he was concerned that supposed UFOs could be advanced tech from foreign nations.
    “We have things flying over our military bases and places where we’re conducting military exercises, and we don’t know what it is, and it isn’t ours,” Rubio, who is acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told CBS4 in Miami last week.

    He added: “I would say that, frankly, that if it’s something from outside this planet, that might actually be better than the fact that we’ve seen some technological leap on behalf of the Chinese or the Russians or some other adversary that allows them to conduct this sort of activity.”

    Objects in these sightings “exhibit, potentially, technologies that you don’t have at your own disposal,” making them a national security risk, Rubio said.

    The military’s encounters with possible UFOs have come under intense interest since several videos were leaked in 2017 showing encounters with fast-moving objects including one given the nickname “Tic Tac” because it looked like one of the candies.
    This object, still not publicly identified, dropped from 60,000 feet to just 50 feet in a matter of seconds:


    “The part that drew our attention was how it wasn’t behaving within the normal laws of physics,” pilot Chad Underwood told New York magazine last year.

    Underwood filmed the “Tic Tac” encounter.
    The military has since confirmed that the footage is real, and formally declassified it in the spring, but has said little else about it.

    The Navy told UFO researcher Christian Lambright in a Freedom of Information Act request that releasing more information “would cause exceptionally grave damage to the National Security of the United States.”

    To The Stars Academy, a company co-founded by former Blink 182 frontman Tom DeLonge that has worked to reveal UFO information and helped expose the 2017 videos, celebrated the newest developments.

    “TTSA welcomes the increase in transparency and is steadfast in our mission to educate policy makers and support continued interest and engagement on this topic,” the organization said via Facebook.

    There have been calls for "disclosure" on what the military really know about UFO's for decades. A lot of former military / CIA insiders claim that anti-gravity technology has been reverse-engineered from ET craft a long time already.

    Doubtless any disclosure of alien life from the military would probably involve more "threats to mankind", and the necessary steps to implement more security measures.

    I suppose it's kinda arrogant to assume we're alone in the universe in much the same way as Douglas Adams's puddle analogy describes the arrogance of the earth being made for mankind... But that's another story.

    Of course if there is other life out there that doesn't automatically mean they have the means and technology to travel the cosmos either. Could be a planet of Chico's out there wandering around and bumping into each other.

    This podcast is well worth the watch. It has one of the Navy pilots that had one of these close encounters. Should be watched in full...

    A collection of ambiguous quoted that confirm nothing '
    Raid said "I came to the conclusion that there were reports — some were substantive, some not so substantive — that there were actual materials that the government and the private sector had in their possession,"
    What does that mean?
    Then Astrophysicist Eric W. Davis said he examined some of the material and concluded that "we did not make it ourselves" to which I add . "being an Astrophysicist and mot a materials engineer"
    Rubio says that he hopes it's aliens and not competing countries because for some reason he likes little green man better.
    For me I find it difficult that alien beings so advanced to have developed technology that has conquered time delusion , vast distances, the limitations of the speed of light and the dangers of interstellar travel, only to come and crush on Earth.
    Personally , I believe that given the number of stars it is inevitable the however improbable is possible, and that other civilizations have occurred in other planets but that the limitations of the physical laws that govern the universe (Spinoza's god) forever will keep us apart.

    Maybe, God has gone high-tech and is using a spaceship for His second coming.

    Maybe God is a metaphor for an ultra-intelligent space-consciousness infinitely more wise and powerful than we are but possibly still the result of an evolutionary selective process.

    The joke will be on us monkey-brained atheists when the celestial ultra-being finally does rock up.

    On the other hand, they only really need to be 100 years more advanced than us to be considered a Super Race and potentially very fucking dangerous.

    This is true. Stephen Hawking once said that we should not be trying to communicate with aliens...

    ...probably because he'd be unable to outrun their ray guns...

    Hawking also stated conclusively that time travel is impossible, with the questionable thinking that otherwise we would be visited by people from the future. Utter garbage, and that's when I went right off this 'genius'.

    It's equally reasonable to suggest that time travel is not just possible but will be invented, and that we are already being visited by people from the future, but they don't want us to know. Or even that the past is the past as it's already happened and cannot be changed even minutely, so that incoming visitors from the future can view events as though they were watching through a window, but without the slightest involvement or interaction.

    If Hawking is nodding his head sagely wherever he is or kicking himself for not thinking of that, I accept bitcoin.
