When a person first starts reading about UFOs, be it at whatever level of interest, it doesn't take very long to realize that whatever your beliefs on the subject may be, the subject itself is very complex, and in fact the more research you do, the more layers are revealed, just like an onion. So with that in mind, I'd like to submit to my readers what I intend to be an annual issue that sums up where we stand to date in the field of UFOlogy: The State Of the Onion
UFOs are real. Not everything that is reported is an intelligently controlled craft from another world, however some are. Obviously not every sighting report is of an 'unknown'. Most are simply misidentification of either unfamiliar aircraft, or some type of natural phenomenon. Their appearance is not anything new, and has been recorded throughout history, although not always interpreted accurately. In fact it is only in recent history that they have been viewed with any type of fear, a probable result of the disinformation campaign and cover-up that has been in place since World War ll.
Although there are reports over the ages of the appearance of what we would today call UFOs, most researchers would agree that since the development of atomic weapons, the frequency of sightings has risen. The number of sightings around atomic bomb tests, nuclear missile silos, and nuclear testing facilities would seem to indicate a more than passing interest in our use of nuclear energy, and who can say whether or not their direct interaction with our nuclear arsenal has directly saved us from a nuclear holocaust or not! It doesn't take a genius to figure out that maybe they don't want bullies such as ourselves running around their neighborhood with a bunch of atom bombs!
Do these visitors from elsewhere take people from time to time for whatever purposes we've yet to deduce? I can only say yes. Do I know for what reason? No. I can only conclude from the cases I've researched, and the experiencers that I personally know and have talked to that it is a real phenomenon, and that is about all I, or anyone else that I'm aware of can honestly tell you. The same thing goes for the cattle mutilation phenomenon. I know it is real, I suspect it is tied to the UFO/alien phenomenon, but that is all I can say for sure, I can't give you the answer to the question: Why?
It is also apparent that there are more than one type, or species of alien visiting us, and just like you and I don't drive the same kind of car, they don't all come in the same type of spaceship. It is also probably a safe bet that they didn't cross interstellar distances in the equivalent of a Volkswagen, but rather something more akin to an aircraft carrier. That would also explain the occasional reports of super-sized craft, with smaller craft entering or exiting them.
Since our planet is 70% water, a ridiculous amount of which we know nothing about, it is conceivable that any visitors from another planet would be able to set up a base of operations underwater, and would most likely be able to remain undetected. Such an endeavor would be childs play to any space faring race capable of traveling interstellar distances through the vacuum of space!
What about communication with alien races? Well, for some it has already happened. If any of the experiencers are to be believed, and I think we'd be fools not to, there has already been communication between our species. Some of the 'messages' have even been relayed to us, and while they might seem simplistic, they are also profound. We are the custodians of this planet. We are guardians of the life here, and we are here to protect the other species and to care for them, not kill them. There are many different species throughout the universe, and we must learn the lessons of diversity and stewardship.
There has also been a very clear message sent to halt our usage of atomic weapons, and our pollution of the environment from nuclear waste. We still do not understand the environmental impact it has, and how badly we are damaging the environment for future generations. I believe it to be of universal concern how we deal with this issue.
So how does this relate to our government? Well, this issue might be called 'The State Of the Onion" but when it comes to our government and the subject of UFOs...it seems like we are all fungi because we are constantly kept in the dark, and fed pure manure. Anyone who thinks I'm wrong is more than welcome to try to explain why FOIA requests written to various government entities enquiring about the subject of UFOs, come back redacted with either black marker or White Out. If they even honor your request.
Do I think 'disclosure' will ever happen? Wake up. It's been happening for almost ten years now! If you're waiting for some talking head at a podium, don't hold your breath. That would be way to messy. It can only happen the way it is happening. One drip at a time. Too many people have too much to lose for it to happen any other way.
