[exopolitics] The Elephant is Stampeding in the Living
Aloha, below is a helpful summary by Whitley Strieber on
the recent spate of UFO sightings and disclosures by important
political figures and governments. It does appear that the elephant
of extraterrestrial disclosure is on the stampede. Perhaps like the
crumbling Bush administration, the Cosmic Watergate is going to
The past six
months have been the most astonishing period of change in the whole
history of the UFO phenomenon. Not since the early fifties have there been
so many and such extensive sightings, and never with such a level of
official support for the reality of the phenomenon.
touch on a few highlights, there have been extensive sightings in many
parts of the world, with large numbers of reports out of the UK and,
especially, Iran. The United States has had the extraordinary O'Hare
Airport sighting, among others.
But it is not just the sightings
that are changing things, it is the disintegration of the UFO
Governor Fife Symington of Arizona, who
orchestrated one of the most harmful debunking press conferences in the
history of the phenomenon when he turned the Phoenix Lights into an
international laughingstock, now says that he actually SAW the greatest
mystery of that night: the huge black triangle that passed over the
Prior to that, former Canadian Defense Minister Paul
Hellyer said frankly that "UFOs are as real as the planes that fly
over your head."
In February, the British Ministry of Defense
issued almost 500 pages of previously secret UFO documents that both
showed that the ministry found many sightings credible and unexplained,
and included a remarkable comment by an unnamed author:
security implications are considerable. We have many reports of strange
objects in the skies and we have never investigated them. I also believe
that it is important to appreciate that what is scientific 'fact' today
may not be true tomorrow… If reports are taken at face value then
devices exist that do not use conventional reaction propulsion systems,
they have a very wide range of speeds and are stealthy.
that we could use this technology, if it exists… If the sightings are of
devices not of the Earth then their purpose needs to be established as a
matter of priority… possibilities are:
I will get back
to those three points in a moment. To continue with the disclosures,
the French government has now opened its entire UFO file, revealing
thousands of meticulously investigated cases, a stunning 25% of which
There is no evidence that the obsessively
secretive US will ever release any real information, at least not as
it is now constituted. It has, after all, led the world in fifty years of
denial about the most important event in human history, which is the fact
that an unknown intelligence has been involved with us for at least sixty
years, and possibly longer, maybe even a lot longer.
We do not
know what this intelligence is. Of course, it could be aliens from another
planet or planets, but it could also be something very different. This is
a big, immeasurably old and complex universe, consisting largely of what
we call 'dark matter' which we have never even detected. In this universe,
it may be possible to travel across time. It may be possible to move among
very physical realities that coexist in the same space.
what we are seeing could be almost anything. It could be something
completely inconceivable to us now. Or it could be that we are the target
of attention from another world right here in this universe, and it's all
fairly straightforward--if anything about it could be considered
The reason I say that is that our governments are
not the only parties to this affair who are operating secretively. The
visitors themselves are secretive, also, but in a very careful and
considered way. Indeed, the way in which they are secretive, if you think
about it carefully, probably emerges from a carefully evolved policy of
If I am correct about how this policy works, the recent
bout of disclosure, and especially things like the intensity of interest
that is greeting the opening of the French files (their official site has
been overwhelmed with hits) will result in some very extraordinary
sightings. We shall see.
Whether that happens or not, we shall
see. But I think it's time to stop dancing around and face the fact that
there is an elephant in this particular living room. If we address its
presence, we are going to be able to unlock many, if not all, of the
secrets our stealthy visitors are keeping from us.
The sad thing
about all the debunking of the past sixty years is that there has
been a tremendous waste of knowledge. If the general public had known that
UFOs were real, and our scientists had been able to address that
reality, gathering evidence in an organized way, we would have benefited
immeasurably from the treasury of new knowledge their observations would
have inevitably brought us.
Led by the United States government
and the American press, the world's educated classes have universally
rejected the idea that UFOs are real, and have methodically ignored this
knowledge. What a waste, and all for such a stupid reason.
instituted its policy of secrecy in 1947 because the Air Force told
President Truman that it could do nothing to control the incursion.
what General Arthur Exon told me personally about the Roswell UFO,
from Truman on down knew it was not of this world within 24 hours of our
knowledge was hidden from the public, which was a foolish policy then and
is not only foolish now, but also venial and a great waste of the human
mind and all of the exquisite scientific institutions we have evolved to
acquire and interpret information.
When I was working on UFO
materials at the Southwest Research Institute with Dr. William
Mallow, the director told him that their CIA client took a "dim
view" of me and of UFO research in general. He was forced to do all of his
work for me in handwritten notes. He could not report on Southwest
He was one of the world's greatest materials
scientists, and he knew that much of what I was bringing him was totally
inexplicable. And when I think of a big and, frankly, stupid bully of an
institution like some idiotic government agency suppressing not only his
work, but all the work that could otherwise have been done, my blood just
boils. God knows what we might have accomplished if we had done proper
research into the UFO phenomenon. Perhaps Paull Hellyer is right
when he says that we could probably have solved such things as our global
warming problems by using the technology we would have devised.
And it boils even more when I think of the elephant in the
living room: the close encounter witnesses.
If we accept that
there are unknown intelligences here controlling flying craft, then the
next question begs to be asked: what are they doing?
answer it, let's ask what we would be doing if we found another planet
with an intelligent life form on it that was bright but more primitive
First, our interest in that planet would be focused on
that life form. Second, if we were either exploitative or concerned about
preserving the culture in its natural state, or both, we would be very
secretive. In fact, our anthropologists would demand secrecy so that we
could study this culture as it was before it knew about us. Our biologists
would certainly want DNA samples, and we would have to get them secretly,
especially if the species was aggressively territorial. In that case, we
might undertake a process of slow revelation, something like taming a wild
animal by slow approach and gradual acclimatization.
words, we would act toward less advanced intelligent creatures on another
planet exactly as the visitors are acting toward us.
you would interact more intimately with certain members of the species.
You might even create versions of the creatures yourselves, if you could
raise them, and infiltrate them into the culture in order to carry out
your policies among them.
I am a person with an implant. It's in
my left ear right now, where it has been since the day it was put in. As I
write this, I reach up and feel it. I remember perfectly well when it was
put in, and who did it. Two people, a man and a woman. They did it on a
night in May. Before they did it, a disturbance outside woke me up,
whereupon I heard a voice outside say "condition red." The two people then
came rushing into the bedroom from the hall and did their work. I was
rendered helpless, but I felt them working.
The next day, the ear
was sore, and later I tried to get a doctor to remove the thing. When his
scalpel touched it, it moved on its own to another part of my ear. Not
understanding what was happening, he withdrew. The next day, the object
returned to where it has remained ever since.
I am not alone.
There are plenty of people around who have implants.
are those people - at least in my case - who put them in? (I might add
that most people remember getting theirs in a much more alien
of the memories of the close encounter witnesses?
The notion that
all of these memories are recovered through hypnosis is a lie. After I
published Communion, we got half a
million letters from people who had encountered the visitors. We still
have a few thousand of these, to this day. Of these people, almost none
had ever been hypnotized. None. And yet, when you read the Communion
Letters, you see the incredible and engaging detail of their memories.
They are the elephant in the living room. It is out of their minds
and their bodies that we will gain knowledge of the secret of why the
visitors are here.
Close encounter witnesses are routinely
lampooned. Indeed, sociologists within the US government long ago hit on
the fact that laughter is the best way to keep the whole UFO phenomenon
secret. And it works. After the O'Hare sighting, United
Airlines cautioned its personnel not to talk about it for fear that the
airline would be embarrassed.
The US government aside, the human
species is signaling, through the medium of all these disclosures, that we
are ready to face more of the truth.
In order to take the next
step, all we need to do is recognize the elephant in the living
room: it is not the fact that UFOs are real. That's just the mouse.
It's the fact that millions of human beings have been in them and come
face to face with their mysterious occupants, for better or for worse.
That's the elephant.
