One of the perennial questions pondered by readers of my blog is "just what do the aliens want?" or "Why would they even be here?" Last night, an old program aired on...of all places...the Planet Green network that attempted to explore such questions. I would now like to blog a few responses to what I saw.
Jim Marrs, journalist and author of numerous conspiracy books, said that after the first atomic bomb was detonated in 1945, an enormous wave of energy traveled out into space, garnering the attention of anyone out there. "The kids have found the matches," he postulated the aliens as saying. I like Jim. I think he's a good guy. But I must disagree with him on this point. Could our first atomic test really be discernible in space, where so many detonations of far greater magnitudes take place? I'm not so sure.
Peter Gersten is an attorney who as of 2006, has brought ten lawsuits against the federal government in an effort to gain release of files pertaining to UFOs. He has received over 100 pages of documents. Many of those pages have been blacked out and redacted due to "national security concerns." While Gersten appeared to see this as a evidence of a governmental UFO cover-up, I don't think that is entirely the case. The US government has many means of gathering intelligence. Among those are spy planes that utilized highly advanced...and highly classified...technology.
I did like how the producers had Gersten in the middle of a desert at a desk. A desk complete with a phone and a lamp. And they were plugged into what exactly?
Clifford Stone is a former Army specialist and a man with a unique story. He claimed to have worked for two top secret projects, one called Project Moondust and the other Project Blue Fire. His unit was tasked to recover objects fallen from space, whether they be satellites or craft that were ours, Soviet, or others (cue ominous music). In 1969, he and his unit were called to a crash recovery operation. The colonel in charge warned the men of radiation and that the Soviets sent monkeys into orbit from time to time. If they saw anything weird, they were to always keep in mind it was a monkey.
Well Stone did see something weird. The crashed vehicle was saucer-shaped and dangling out of its door was a dead alien. "I know it wasn't a monkey," a visibly shaken Stone said. Of course the military denies this, but leaning towards believing him. The poor guy was scared and he has nothing to gain by lying.
Perhaps more disturbing, just what was the endgame planned for these Soviet space monkeys and how many are still in existence?
Richard Dolan, a solid and level-headed UFO researcher, showed up in a dark parking garage to talk about Men In Black. Certainly the parking garage was chosen for effect by the show's producers. Dolan confirmed that his research did point towards intelligence agents whose existence was off the books and whose authority was above most other operatives. These MIBs are tasked with harassing witnesses, sowing disinformation, and enforcing the UFO cover-up by any means necessary.
Lucky for us viewers, the show found an actual MIB and I'm not talkin' Will Smith. The man would not reveal his identity (natch) and only appeared in shadow. He attested to have been involved with numerous operations to protect the UFO cover-up, a few of them involving his interaction with actual aliens. "They're between 3-4 feet tall," he said. "Large eyes with double eyelids as they come from a planet with a very bright sun." Biologically, I have to wonder why an organism would develop such large eyes under a brilliant sun. Doesn't make sense.
Then again, the show was quick to point out that this "MIB" was unwilling to offer any evidence to back up his story...nor could the producers find any themselves. My guess is, he's just some guy who wanted to say "hey, check it out. I'm on TV. Can't see me in the shadow, but that's really me."
So again we must ask, why go through all this effort of a cover-up? Jim Marrs seems to think it's because of the alien technology involved, likely anti-gravity. If that were to get out, the oil industry would be in the soup. But then again, why couldn't the industry just sell it themselves? My reckon is that the real reason for the conspiracy is panic. What government wants to admit that it is impotent in the face of another power? Or how would people react to information that might disprove the Bible? Not well, is my guess.
We still have not gotten to an answer as to "what do the aliens want?" Derrel Sims believes they want to control us. He is a private investigator who claims to have been abducted by aliens at age 3 and reports that his own son has had abduction experiences as well. Sims is said to be in possession of several alien implants that have been surgically removed from other abductees, devices that can control the serotonin and dopamine levels of the brain. If one of these implants existed in your body, the aliens could control your emotions and therefore could control you. Is that it? The aliens want control of our minds? Shockingly, Sims declined to release the implants for independent examination. Sort of remind you of anyone?
Then, the big finale. David Icke shows up! I've blogged about Icke before. What a fun guy. He believes that since the dawn of time, humanity has been secretly ruled by a race of reptoid aliens (a la V) who have assumed the guise of those in power. Bush, Kennedys, even Britain's Royal Family. You can now rewatch the Royal wedding with an entirely new perspective.
Not only are these aliens running the whole show behind the scenes, but we ourselves might be inside an enormous computer simulation. Of course one wonders about the motivations behind doing that as well. Aren't there simpler means of control?
Again we find ourselves in the murk and the mist. Only when an actual alien (or inter-dimensional being) fesses up on national television are we all going to know the truth.And I just don't see that happening any time soon.
