"Human beings are under the control of a strange force that bends them in absurd ways, forcing them to play a role in a bizarre game of deception."
~Jacques Vallée, Messengers of Deception, 1979
Lock up the cows, stock up on alien-favourite strawberry ice cream, and take me to your kilted leader! It's a big year and a big month for UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena), the modern replacement acronym for UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) and a month during which previously classified information on UAPs will be released. What was previously dismissed or obfuscated by official agencies has now been rolled out for legitimate discussion for formal mainstream coverage of first person accounts. What could it all mean? Evidence of extra-terrestrials? Earth-based crypto-terrestrials? Parallel worlds in time and space? Mass deception or large scale cultural Psy Ops? False flags and misdirection? Combination of all of the above? Both June 24 and July 2nd are special days in ufology. June 24th, 1947, marks the date when a private pilot from Idaho, Kenneth Arnold, reported seeing nine circular objects traveling at supersonic speeds near Mount Rainier. Newspapers described them as “flying saucers,”July 2nd commemorates the UFO crash of the 1947 Roswell Incident, later disclosed to have been a nuclear test surveillance balloon from Project Mogul. Nevertheless, well-documented UFO and alien sightings have been reported since antiquity. Although alien "ships", "flying saucers" and other UAPs differ, the phenotypes of alleged extraterrestrial beings reported in close encounters all exhibit bilateral symmetry, ideal for the wearing of kilts! This thoughtfully designed tartan perfectly complements all known alien skin tones in the ufologist approved list of extraterrestrial beings: Flatwoods monster (West Virginia folklore), Greys (also known as Zeta Reticulans), Roswell Greys (grey-skinned humanoids), Hopkinsville goblin (Kentucky folklore), Little Green Men (a cultural aggregate), Nordic/Aryan aliens (also known as Space Brothers, Venusians, Pleiadeans), and the lizard-like Reptilians! This fashion tartan is guaranteed to complement the colour of their big black soulless eyes ... 🐄 🍨 👽🛸
World UFO Day is celebrated by some on June 24, and others on July 2. June 24, 1947 is the date that aviator Kenneth Arnold reported what is generally considered to be the first widely reported unidentified flying object sighting in the United States, in while July 2 commemorates the supposed UFO crash in the 1947 Roswell UFO Incident.
The stated goal of the July 2 celebration is to raise awareness of "the undoubted existence of UFOs" and to encourage governments to declassify their files on UFO sightings.
The acronym "UFO" was coined in 1953 by Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, who headed Project Blue Book, the United States Air Force's official investigation of UFOs. He wrote, "Obviously the term 'flying saucer' is misleading when applied to objects of every conceivable shape and performance. For this reason the military prefers the more general, if less colorful, name: unidentified flying objects. UFO (pronounced Yoo-foe) for short."
Other phrases that were used officially and that predate the UFO acronym include "flying flapjack", "flying disc", "unexplained flying discs", and "unidentifiable object."
Studies have established that the majority of UFO observations are misidentified conventional objects or naturalphenomena—most commonly aircraft, balloons, noctilucent clouds, nacreous clouds, or astronomical objects such as meteors or bright planets with a small percentage even being hoaxes.
Early in 2019, newly declassified documents from the US Pentagon reveal the Department of Defense funded projects that investigated UFOs, wormholes, alternate dimensions and a host of other subjects that are often the topics of conspiracy theorists.
The Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) released 38 research titles following a Freedom of Information Act request from Steven Aftergood, director of the Federation of American Scientists’ Project on Government Secrecy. The research was funded by the Department of Defense under its Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP). Some of the more interesting projects include Invisibility Cloaking; Traversable Wormholes, Stargates, and Negative Energy; Warp Drive, Dark Energy, and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions; and An Introduction to the Statistical Drake Equation.
Fascination with alien sightings, UFOs, and abductions cross all borders and have alleged hot spots of activity.
Gorebridge, Scotland, close to Edinburgh, is one such area for concentrated UFO sightings. For more information and details of the famous 1979 Robert Taylor incident, click the UFO cluster of flying saucers.
