Unexplained Arial Phenomena – The Aliens Among Us

An uptick in UFO sightings by military pilots raises all sorts of interesting questions.

For the last several years, the U.S. military has observed an increase in what it calls “unexplained aerial phenomena.” The rest of us may know them by their more common name — unidentified flying objects — and we should all strive, as the Navy is doing, to take these reports more seriously.

Sometimes, according to the Washington Post, well-trained military pilots “claimed to observe small spherical objects flying in formation. Others say they’ve seen white, Tic Tac-shaped vehicles. Aside from drones, all engines rely on burning fuel to generate power, but these vehicles all had no air intake, no wind and no exhaust.” They also appear to exceed all known aircraft in speed and have been described by a former deputy assistant secretary of defense as embodying a “truly radical technology.”

Meanwhile, Avi Loeb, chair of the Harvard astronomy department, recently suggested that a passing object in space, named Oumuamua, might be a lightsail from an advanced alien civilization, as evidenced by its apparently strange movements.

Before you ask: No, I don’t think the proverbial “Little Green Men” have come. But maybe you wonder about the probability, even if quite small, that aliens are visiting. Or at the very least you might think we should remove the stigma, which has been strong in the military, against reporting and discussing UFO sightings.

You might also be wondering which non-alien phenomena might be accounting for these strange observations. Wouldn’t it be interesting, for instance, if a foreign power were tracking our military missions with a new secret weapon? Or if the eyewitness reports of our service members were so unreliable and in such systematic ways?

But let’s first step back a bit and see why the chance of actual alien visitations is more than minuscule.

There is a well-known dilemma known as the Fermi paradox, and it asks why we have not seen evidence of alien visitation or communications to date. After all, scientists are identifying more potentially life-supporting planets all the time, and the number of such planets in our galaxy is likely very large. Even if the chance of intelligent life on any single planet is small, it is plausible to think at least a few of these places have evolved technologically sophisticated civilizations, capable of sending messages to us.

An alien civilization doesn’t have to send its people. It could build a few self-replicating von Neumann probes, as they are called, carrying artificial intelligence and powered by solar or nuclear energy. At some point you would expect such probes to wash up on our shores or transmit messages to us.

You can debate the actual numbers, but on the grounds of pure theory alone, the chance of alien contact of some kind is not so small. So on the yes side, on behalf of the notion that something truly strange is happening here, we have both pilot testimonials and pure theory. That is not nearly enough, in my view, to believe in alien visitation, but it is more weight than many people think.

Also keep in mind the history of the New World before the European arrival and conquest. There were legends of fair-skinned visitors from abroad, perhaps stemming from the Vikings and their explorations, but one day this “alien contact” turned out to be very real indeed — through Columbus, Cortés and others. To be oblivious of another civilization for a long time, and then suddenly encounter it, is a common theme in human history. Perhaps this has not happened for the last time.

Of course, the case against alien visitation remains strong. On its side is common sense, the absence of anything close to knockdown evidence, the general notion that very large changes in our understanding of the world are rare, and the observation that if advanced aliens somehow were here, they either would be entirely hidden or much more obvious.

Still, when you run all the arguments through your mind, is it not possible to come away with an estimate of at least a one-in-a-thousand chance that alien visitations are a real thing? Even such a small chance would be worthy of more discussion. And might I be able to talk a few of the bolder ones among us up to a one-in-a-hundred chance?

Regardless of how you judge the likelihood, you can still benefit from thinking more deeply about the mysteries of the universe and our place in it. Perhaps the earth has life because it came from other solar systems, seeded by alien probes, and indeed that is what I would do if I were a very wealthy alien philanthropist. If you end up with 100 successfully seeded solar systems for each very advanced civilization, the resulting odds suggest that we are indeed the result of a seed.

That’s partly why, to this observer, the most likely resolution of the Fermi paradox is this: The aliens have indeed arrived, through panspermia — and we are they.

NASA research: UFO sightings since ancient times

The study was authored by Richard B. Stoters, a scientist at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Research. In 2007, Stoters wrote the article “Unidentified Flying Objects in Ancient Times.”

Stoters combined a historical and scientific approach to ancient reports of what are today called Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs).

He analyzed dozens of UFO accounts of ancient historians – his focus was on Roman and Greek historians. Stoters cites many descriptions of objects in the sky over 2,000 years ago.

Stoters has done a great job and NASA has published his research.

Stoters studied UFO sightings only from Rome and Greece in his research, but it is worth remembering that there are stories of flying objects throughout the ancient world.

In scriptures such as the Bible or the Mahabharata, there are descriptions of flying objects that were seen by ancient people (by the way, NASA engineer Joseph Blumrich reconstructed the vehicle that the prophet Ezekiel saw).

When we talk about current sightings of modern UFOs, it is worth remembering that UFOs have been observed from the very beginning of civilization.

Although UFOs differ in morphology and behavior, there are still common patterns. At close range, UFOs appear as discs or cigar-shaped objects, including vertical cylinders surrounded by “clouds” and associated with smaller discs.

Depending on the point from which the object was observed, their shapes can be similar or even identical:

When viewed from the front, the disc looks round, although from the edge it looks elliptical or oblong.

Colors during the day are usually described as silver or gray, and at night as red or multi-colored lights.

Sizes range from one meter to hundreds of meters.

UFOs are usually silent and make no sound in flight.

They can be seen in the air or on the ground, hovering or stationary, or moving through the sky or moving randomly.

Sometimes they suddenly appear or disappear.

A mysterious object near the moon and a Disc-shaped UFO hit the news

A video was posted on the Internet, which clearly shows how an unidentified object flew over the surface of the Earth satellite, and then quickly disappeared from view. 

In a strange video, which was filmed on July 25 in the city of Benzin by Marek Slade, it is perfectly visible how a UFO flew at incredible speed right in front of the moon. An incomprehensible object flew along a horizontal line and until the very moment of its disappearance its flight path did not change.

Users immediately began to comment on this video. It is worth noting that opinions were divided over what exactly can be seen on the video posted on the network. Some users suggested that they managed to take pictures of the International Space Station, which swept in front of the satellite at great speed. It could also be an artificial satellite. Another part of the users agreed that this is indeed a UFO, which belongs to an unknown alien civilization.

There were also comments that it could have been a fairly large bird that flew right between the moon and the camera at the time of filming the video. If it were actually some kind of flying device near the moon, then when it reached the dark side of the satellite, it would immediately disappear from the field of view. But this did not happen and the object was clearly visible even on the dark side.

The video was posted on the Internet by the author of a fairly popular YouTube channel, which discusses a variety of conspiracy theories that are relevant today. At the moment, more than 1000 users have watched the video. In the comments, one can observe a very heated debate as to what it really was.

Disc UFO hits NBC’s evening news

The August 3, 2020 issue of NBC Nightly News caught our attention by focusing on how the Navajo Indians are fighting a water crisis amid the coronavirus pandemic, but after watching this issue we found something else there – a disc-shaped UFO flying by at that very moment, when the Indian shaman cried out to the gods.

Issue Summary: “Cynthia McFadden of NBC News takes a closer look at the water crisis affecting the Navajo people in Arizona, where at least 30 percent of the houses on the reservation have no running water.”

Notice how the UFO “rips open” the cloud as it flies out of it.

What hackers were looking for on the Vatican servers

As the Associated Press reports on July 29, 2020, the Vatican and the Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong have been targeted by Chinese hackers believed to be in the service of the Chinese government. There was no immediate comment at the Vatican and it was only now, after a report by The New York Times, that everything became known.

When it comes to cyber espionage, the Vatican may not seem like an obvious target. However, it has now been targeted by hackers who appear to be linked to China. 

China and the Vatican are expected to begin negotiations in September to renew an agreement on control of the Catholic Church in China. Chinese leaders may look an edge – inside knowledge about how the Holy See was planning to approach the negotiating table, according to a report released by Recorded Future, a company that investigates threats in cyberspace. 

The report states that the hackers were targeted the Vatican, the Diocese of Hong Kong and its head, the de facto representative of the Pope in China. In addition, according to the report, China used malware to gain access to the Vatican ‘s internal networks.

China’s Foreign Ministry generally denies any involvement in the incident, calling the report “baseless speculation.” The attacks continued from May until at least July 21st. They included, in particular, an explicit phishing attempt with documents from the Vatican State Secretariat, as it were, sent to the head of the Vatican mission in Hong Kong.

Phishing is a type of Internet fraud, the purpose of which is to gain access to confidential user data. This is achieved by sending mass emails on behalf of popular brands, as well as private messages within various services, for example, on behalf of banks or within social networks.

The letter often contains a direct link to a site that looks indistinguishable from the real one, or to a site with a redirect. After the user lands on a fake page, the scammers try, using various psychological methods, to induce the user to enter their username and password on the fake page, which they use to access a specific site, which allows the fraudsters to gain access to accounts and bank accounts.

According to a report released by the American service Recorded Future, which tracks cyberattacks, the hacking attempt was carried out by a group called RedDelta and began back in May with the possible aim of September negotiations to renew the interim agreement on bishop appointments.

China is home to about 12 million Catholics, who are divided into two groups: one part belongs to the government-backed Chinese Catholic “patriotic church association”, which is outside the power of the Pope, the second, a very small part – is something like a “catacomb church” devoted to the Pope. The Chinese authorities are persecuting the parishioners and, especially, the priests of this church.

In 2018, in order to unite the flock between China and the Vatican, a sort of agreement was signed on the joint appointment of bishops, which would suit both parties. In September 2020, the agreement was to be renewed, therefore, as the official Vatican said – “The proposed invasion of RedDelta will give Beijing an understanding of the negotiating position of the Holy See ahead of the resumption of the deal in September 2020.” But is it really so?

In fact, China and the Vatican are kind of twin brothers. China, which has dramatically gained strength over the past decades, did this exclusively through the efforts of globalists, who for 30 years pumped money and technology there.

On the other hand, although there is no direct evidence that the Vatican is, as it were, the spiritual leader of globalism, nevertheless, there is enough circumstantial evidence and there is even an opinion that the Antichrist will be appointed by the Vatican, which wants to destroy Israel, capture Jerusalem and plant there for the kingdom of his world king.

Therefore, it is hard to believe in some kind of confrontation between the Vatican and the PRC, especially since the essence of the issue is, as it were, feeding a flock of a couple of million sheep, which for China is nothing. Hence, one must think that the Chinese hackers decided to gain access to the computers of the main bosses, containing information that was not shared with Beijing for one reason or another. But what information could this be? And what is the reason for this urgency?

The Vatican undoubtedly keeps many secrets and with at least one eye to look at its secret libraries, many would like to at least have a quick peek at at the names of volumes. However, there are big doubts that the antediluvian manuscripts were translated into digital and placed on the server under the Pope’s bed, so rather there is some current data.

But what kind of data could there be that interested either the Chinese, or someone who hacked into the Vatican disguised himself as Chinese hackers? What kind of data is there, of course, only the Vatican and the hackers who hacked it know for sure, but, as everyone else knows, in observations with infrared telescopes, the Vatican is at the forefront:

Therefore, given the ever-growing rumors about the Earth entering the asteroid cloud, which are trailing behind the Planet X that entered the solar system, one can think that the information of this plan has become the target of the hackers. That is, information about when to run to the bunker and escape. Xi or some other of his comrades might not have been told, so they decided to clarify everything on their own. But no one will tell us what the hackers have dug up, so we will have to wait and see.
