    The never-ending search for UFOs and extraterrestrial intelligence
    EXCERPT:

    By Sarah Kaplan August 4 at 2:36 PM
    Sarah Kaplan is a science reporter for The Washington Post.

    Back in 1950, during a lunch break at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, several scientists were trading wisecracks about a recent spate of UFO reports when Nobel Prize-winning physicist Enrico Fermi offered an observation that has echoed through the decades. Given the number of places where life could exist in the vast universe, and the length of time it has had to evolve, the skies ought to be teeming with beings from advanced, space-faring civilizations — but nothing incontrovertible has shown up. You have to wonder, as Fermi did, “Where is everybody?”

    His colleagues chuckled, but the “Fermi paradox” perfectly frames the profound absurdity of the search for life beyond Earth. Humans have beamed beacons into space, robotically visited every world in the solar system and discovered thousands of planets circling stars far from our own. Yet all we’ve encountered is a chilly void.

    Still, the possibility that something is out there calls to us.

    Three new books approach the mystery from distinctly different perspectives: the unlikely believer in UFOs, the visionary dedicated to rigorous investigation and the cadre of scientists who still plug away at the problem, probing the universe for an answer.

    What Happens Next If We Find Proof of Space Aliens?

    Protocols for responding to the discovery of extraterrestrial intelligence have been created, but they might not be followed.

    • None of that precludes that it exists. All it says is that most of it can't manage to travel interstellar distances. We can't even be sure that advanced species somewhere haven't dumped radio signals for something better and we've just never found any of the short lived ones they did transmit.

      We also don't have a clue where evolution of an intelligent species will take us either.

        One area where overt and direct Contact with any ETs might help would be the knowledge pool of ecosystems/environments on other worlds versus Earth as a Gauge of how unique we might be, and also how/what we can focus upon that is "Common" to carbon based life systems~ecosheres/ecosystems.

        As I've pointed out in other threads, our satellite/Moon plus our unique "Plate Tectonics" makes our World an exception to likely norms, I would suspect. Hence the lessons from less Harsh Worlds may be helpful in our own path of Future.

        • East Field Farmer’s Wife Remembers Wiltshire Crop Circles in the 1940s and 50s

          EXCERPT:
          ...
          Alton Barnes (England) – Researchers behind the „Crop Circle Exhibition & Center“ report a major breakthrough in tracing back the crop circle phenomenon in the world’s hotspot – the village of Alton Barnes in Pewsey Valley in the heart of the south-western British county of Wiltshire. The memories of Shirley Carson, mother of East Field farmer Tim Carson, reveal that the area not only plays a key role in the modern-day crop circle phenomenon – but also hosted crop circles already in the 1940s and 50s.

          ...
          „This first explanation became questioned just a few years later when my father discovered another ‚circle‘, but now made of two concentric rings of a similar size. While the crop in the inner circle was precisely laid in one direction (clockwise or anti-clockwise) the outer ring was laid in the opposite direction. In the view of this new „circle“ we all realized that this could hardly bee explained by by a whirlwind anymore.“
          „We had no idea what could have caused it. But we did not wonder to much about it. However, we took it as a little mystery.“
          „It was a time when the fields had no tramlines (the tractor’s drive-ways through the fields) yet, so the rings center in both cases was in the middle of undisturbed standing crop and while both circles were placed not two far from the field’s edge, also this (feature) was kind of a mystery to us.

          • Who Is Doing This?! Global Wave of Animal Mutilations Defies Explanation

            ...
            Who or what is mutilating animals the world over? Declassified files show the US Federal Bureau of Investigation has investigated thousands of instances of cattle disfigurement across the American Midwest since the 1970s, to no avail. A leading expert in the field isn't sure either – but he has told Sputnik the explanation certainly isn't humdrum.
            ...
            To achieve such a feat would require molecular-specific surgical devices capable of going through skin, cartilege, muscle, bone an organs to remove tissue from a specific organ without causing any cutting damage to the rest of the body — an impossibility on Earth, although a hypothesized innovation in the distant future.In all, there are over 10,000 documented instances of animals being bewilderingly mutilated in the US alone since 1955 — and in every case that has been investigated by law enforcement, no human or predator has ever been found to be the culprit.

            The phenomenon constitutes the largest single animal cruelty trend not merely in the US, but the world — and each case costs ranchers thousands of dollars.
            ...
            He says each case fits a common pattern — an animal is lifted from location A to a location B, where it's drained of blood and unusual cuts are created.

            Then, the animal is placed in location C, which lies within the general area of location A.

            "No sign of predator takedown, no sign of masses amount of bleeding out, and no signs of animal struggle, none! The animal is just placed back, and in some cases, a round ground depression is created while placing the animal back. Mutilations have been going on for centuries — Native Americans also have stories of mutilated animals that occurred before the Europeans migrated to North America," Mr. Zukowski told Sputnik.

            He adds that mutilations typically occur multiple times within a week, either in the same area or in different states — "we had one in Colorado, and within three days there was another in Missouri" — and in some of his investigations, the animal was found lying in a crop-circle-like ground depression.

            Soil analysis he has conducted has shown the soil within the animal's vicinity is less water-soluble than outside the circle, meaning whatever caused the circle altered the nutrients in the soil — the exact same result has been recorded in different cases in separate US states (Colorado, Missouri, and Georgia), which don't share the same types of soil.

                    • Rendezvous with Vallee: From UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) to UAMs (Unidentified Alchemical Manifestations)

                      EXCERPTS:
                      ...
                      Last week my friends Darren and Graham, hosts of The Grimerica Show podcast, regaled me with what is probably the greatest honor a UFO buff can receive: A chance to interview Dr. Jacques Vallee, the most renowned researcher in the field.
                      ...
                      There's a lot of things we covered in the approximate 1½ hours we had Dr. Vallee on the line, but the REAL meat of the conversation happened when we began to discuss what he calls 'physical samples', and the research he's been trying to do with them. Firstly he made the distinction between two different type of samples connected to the UFO question: ...
                      "We found something very curious," he told us. When analyzing the isotope ratios of these mineral samples, they discovered they neither conformed to the expected terrestrial ratios, nor to the extraterrestrial ones exhibited by meteoric objects. In other words, it almost seemed as if the isotopes had been reengineered, by separating them and giving them an exotic ratio only to reintroduce them into the metal alloy for some unknown reason.
                      ...
                      I waited for Dr. Vallee to finish talking about how he and his colleagues are willing to share their samples to whomever wants to conduct their own experiments, and I excitedly jumped in
                      to ask him: "are you saying these results suggest we're dealing with an agency not only capable of manipulating the space-time continuum --the way you and other researchers have documented in plenty of cases-- but ALSO capable of transforming energy into matter, and vice versa?"
                      I almost jumped out of my chair when he replied with a resounding "Oh yes!"

                        • Have any AG members ever had a paranormal experience?
                          I had a 'False Arrival' about 30 years ago when I was up in my room building a plastic model ship and I heard the family arrive back from a shopping trip in town, but when I went down to greet them there was nobody there!
                          I later found out that the phenomenon is called 'False Arrival' and is fairly common.
                          I remember it as if it was yesterday, I heard their voices in the street, I heard them unlatch the gate, I heard their key going into the front door lock, and I heard their footsteps and voices spill into the hall, then dead silence.
                          I wasn't scared at all, "fascinated" is a better word..

                          A couple of years later I watched a company boss in a supernatural TV documentary recounting his own 'False Arrival' experience, he was alone one night up in the control tower "office" of an airfield where his firm was renting some buildings and as he was doing the accounts he heard footsteps coming up the stone stairs and stop outside the door. "Well come on in then!" he called out impatiently, but there was just silence, and when he opened the door there was nobody there!

                          There seems to be a link between his experience and mine, namely that we were both fiercely concentrating on something at the time, me with building my fiddly model ship, and him doing the accounts.
                          Okay here's my theory-
                          We're all born with a "psychic shield" around our brains that keeps various types of supernatural phenomena out of our skulls, but when we're concentrating on something, our psychic shield becomes drained and weakened, leaving us open to experiencing psychic manifestations such as False Arrivals.
                          Consider this- Sadly students sometimes kill themselves, so perhaps their hard studying has drained their psychic shields to such an extent that demons (for want of a better word) have invaded their minds?
                          Jesus said of a demon seeking a human mind to live in- "Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there" (Matt 12:43-45)

                          So perhaps God's insistence that we keep the Sabbath a work-free day for relaxation is because he wants us to give our brains a rest so that our psychic shield can auto-repair itself?

                          "Report Mr. Spock"
                          "We're being scanned captain, source and origin unknown!"
                          "Shields up, red alert!"

                                EXCERPT:
                                ...
                                On a sunny day in November 2004, off the coast of San Diego, the USS Nimitz battle group encountered a technology beyond anything known on earth. It was a mysterious aircraft shaped like a 46-foot long Tic Tac that hovered and maneuvered for hours and defied the F-18's sent to intercept (related report). UFO researcher Jeremy Corbell joined George Knapp to discuss how an investigation by the US Navy of the incident was hushed up, and the only public mention was in a little known aviation magazine read by pilots.

                                The craft was referred to as an AAV-- anomalous aerial vehicle, and multiple sightings of such craft were observed over a number of days leading up to the Nimitz incident. A USO (unidentified submersible object) was seen underneath the AAV, and the aerial craft seemed to be docking with the object on water, before darting off at an enormous speed, Corbell recounted. The AAV's unknown technology was captured in this leaked footage of the incident.
