NBC News - Penn State astronomer asks - Should we be looking for space aliens a bit closer to home?

Have advanced space aliens once lived or visited here? 

Converging lines of evidence show the media, factions within the US Pentagon and mainstream science are taking UFOs seriously - while the White House remains silent.

A ZlandCommunications Editorial

In a report by NBC News, a Penn State astrophysicist contends that if spacefaring extraterrestrials ever did enter our solar system, perhaps these species might have produced artefacts or other technosignatures that have survived to the present day on any planet in our solar system.

As this dialogue expands, US and Canadian mainstream media have also taken the initiative to create headlines about the Pentagon's high level of interest in UFOs.

Science, the media and government have traditionally shown disinterest, silence and even hostility towards the UFO/ET issue. This now appears to have changed dramatically.

These three terrestrial bodies, whether they realize it or not, have produced three converging lines of evidence that point in one direction: The imminent possibility of an extraterrestrial footprint in our star system. After decades of silence and resistance these three entities seem to be talking the same language.

One line of inquiry points to an admission by the Pentagon that it authorized the release of now, three gun-camera videos, each obtained by Navy F/A-18 jets of multiple intercepts of UFOs. Each video has been authorized for release by Pentagon officials.

The second line of inquiry reveals the Pentagon admitted the existence of a $22 million program to investigate UFOs from 2007 to 2012. The retired head of that program Luis Elizondo is on record - stating he feels the program still operates.

A third line of inquiry is an academic statement by a tenured astronomer at Penn State University about the possible existence of intelligent off-world civilizations.

Upon analysis of these converging lines of evidence it becomes clear these evidentiary facts have much more in common than one might suspect.

Thus far in Canada and the United States alone, six prominent mainstream media outlets in North America have assigned distinguished journalists and high-powered investigative news programs to cover the UFO/ET issue.

Each of these six prominent 21st century news organizations have decided to cover UFO/ET news in a fair and open manner - devoid of the ridicule and giggle factors that characterized their predecessors' treatment of this matter:
  • CTV NEWS - Canada's largest independent news outlet. CTV coverage,
  • America's number one rated 60 Minutes - a CBS flagship of news and analysis interviewed billionaire entrepreneur Robert Bigelow on the UFO/ET matter,
  • MSNBC discussed the Pentagon's UFO program, 
  • ABC News coverage also engaged the UFO/ET matter.

This unexpected and new form of discourse among the mainstream media is gathering momentum - making more and more doubters feel that if conventional mainstream media is chatting up the ET factor in this way, perhaps it is time to take these matters more seriously. 

In an abstract, a Penn State academic states: "The origins and possible locations for technosignatures of such a prior indigenous technological species, which might have arisen on ancient Earth or another body, such as a pre-greenhouse Venus or a wet Mars."

Penn State astrophysicist Dr. Jason Wright told John Wenz of NBC News MACH: 
“We need experts in a variety of fields across astrobiology, geology, and anthropology to look at all the data to make concrete statements about whether there's a chance that advanced space aliens once lived or visited here."

This unprecedented statement by a leading astrophysicist indicating that an ET presence in our solar system is entirely plausible should, on its own merits, be explored.

The contention by Wright is significant for two ardently existential reasons.

First - the UFO/ET issue has long-suffered the criticism that mainstream science and more specifically astronomers have always been reluctant to render public and substantive statements on an ET presence. 

Traditional science has long held that it is not even remotely interested in discussing the proposition that intelligent off-world civilizations may have made their presence felt in our star system. Our Earth-bound modes of reasoning have never included this proposition.

Although slowly, these reservations seem to be evaporating.

This new kind of proclamation out of Penn State is not only extremely unusual and a departure from the status quo - it certainly implies mainstream science is now preparing itself for a much more comprehensive conversation about the much maligned UFO/ET issue.

Why so? Quite simple actually... Any discussion about the existence of extraterrestrials - by default - leads journalists and scientists into the voluminous evidentiary documentation that the UFO phenomenon has been discussed, analyzed and sequestered at the highest levels of governance on the planet for decades. This mode of investigation has never been fully explored by media entities normally bent on celebrity adulation, the stock market or exposing the simplistic notion of government impropriety, waste or a president who appears unable to grasp the meaning and significance of the American Constitution. 

The human family is faced with much larger and more intuitive matters of existentialism - matters that recognize the individual as capable of understanding the significance of his or her own rights - not those donative rights given to them by the state which can be so arbitrarily taken away at any time - but those rights of natural law - the human right to freedom and control over his or her own destiny and development. This is where the UFO/ET issue resides in the human consciousness. It loiters but still operates within a dichotomous cosmos of spiritual simplicity but one of immensely incomprehensible complexity.

Given this unique and often unarticulated context - clear lines of converging evidence dramatically demonstrate that multiple levels of orchestrated government secrecy and lies are now in question. It is now obvious government has - in fact - remained audibly silent on and lied to its citizens about the UFO/ET matter for over 70 years. Does this mendacity conjure suggestions of a cover-up or dare we say - a conspiracy?

This tincture of science and news reporting may represent an emulsion and not an oil and water dichotomy. Considering the connectivity of ideas - add to this mix the governmental and geo-political implications of an ET presence and one is looking at a readymade literary cocktail - capable of re-writing history. 

These seemingly mutually exclusive lines of inquiry now appear to have some common ground - a galactic intersection with Earthly and alien pedestrians crossing every which way to get to the other side.

If a renowned Penn State astrophysicist like Dr. Jason Wright is making these kinds of statements - might we not want to pay a little closer attention. Much in the same way we would if he had proclaimed, "We have found a cure for cancer..." Both are stunning propositions - maybe we can believe both if ET technologies are as advanced as the experts say they may appear to be. 

If the UFOs being seen by pilots are indeed of non-Earth origin as many believe, then we can only assume that these off-world civilizations possess the capacity to conquer the vast interstellar distances of space using unimaginable energy sources and exotic propulsion systems that make possible light speed travel - might they also have eliminated disease as well as their own extinction behaviours?Advancing these kinds of discussions can only enlighten and allow for possibilities - rejecting them is done at our peril.

The second reason why this matter is significant is that NBC and CBS News are credited with being two of, if not the highest rated US mainstream news media outlets. This departure from traditional mainstream news ridicule of the ET issue creates what appears to be a contemporaneous and reformative rise in the level of interest in the possible existence of off-world intelligences that may have made their presence felt in our star system. Might then other mainstream news outlets, government officials and other segments of society pay closer attention?

These growing and concurrent shifts in consciousness and ideology from both the academic/scientific community and American mainstream journalism illustrates a revised attitude toward a conversation about ET life and the truth that has been sequestered behind walls of secrecy for so very long. 

Wright's statement and one by Harvard professor Dr. Avi Loeb has upset the traditional apple-cart among astronomers who hold tight to the view that there is no evidence of an ET presence anywhere in the known cosmos - a world-view that espouses there is no logical sense in pursuing this matter. 

Loeb stated in the same NBC article, “There could have been a visit by another alien civilization” from another solar system. The aliens might have visited us in person, he said, or via some form of space probe. [Should We Be Looking for Space Aliens a Bit Closer to Home? – NBC MACH Aug.29.2017]

Now that Wright and some of his colleagues are asking these kinds of questions - is it not now time to talk more seriously about extraterrestrials, UFOs and a cosmos that may be teeming with life? 

Does the next stage in evolution of this matter foresee the media and science sustain their lines of inquiry to pressure and openly challenge the White House and other indolent levels of governance to come clean? 

Why is this level of discourse so important? 

First, this quality of mainstream coverage would have been unheard of even 5 years ago. Second, this level of coverage by the media reaches far beyond the 'UFO choir-of-the-converted' and into the living rooms, kitchens, libraries, government offices, news rooms and professional institutions where those who inhabit these places go about their business - blissfully unaware of and oblivious to the facts rooted in this matter. It is in these places where the cosmically impaired reside. It is here where what the late Dr. John Mack called - the 'battle over world views' - will be won.

Given that Ptolemy, Galileo and Copernicus began putting major cracks in the outmoded scientific and religious slate of beliefs of the day by imprinting a new paradigm onto reality, it turns out Dr. Wright and his colleagues in addition to the media and the Pentagon might all be on the verge of cracking a few more tablets themselves.

At the vanishing point of these converging lines of evidence we are left with two conclusions: 

  • Science - the government and media are now - for the first time in history are on the same page. It's taken 70 years - but the wait has been worth it, and, 
  • We are not alone and never have been.
It's finally time to talk seriously about UFOs and Extraterrestrial life.

New Pentagon Release - a Third UFO Video

Has Trump been briefed on this official Pentagon release?

Toronto [ZNN]  As reported in the  Washington Post, the Pentagon has now released a third video of US Navy jets  encountering a 'fleet' of UFOs. This video is in addition to the two previous videos of pilot interdiction with UFOs.

Little more can be said about this provocative release other than this 3rd video and the previous two videos all but confirmed the American government is up to its ears in UFOs. 
All of these releases are confirmed, supported by and attested to a tight 'chain of command' within the Pentagon.
Amidst a furor of the Trump administration's diversionary tactics to swell interest towards North Korea - this revelation by the Pentagon indicates the Trump administration is avoiding any commentary on the Pentagon's continued resurgence of information on the UFO matter.
Although Luis Elizondo - former director of the US Pentagon UFO program stated - he left the program but is confident the program is still operative - there is little to believe US intelligence would be foolish enough NOT to sustain its interest in monitoring UFOs.
Despite the connectivity among the President's daily briefing (PDB) on all matters of intelligence and unless intelligence personnel are keeping this data from him for obvious reasons - Trump must be and is currently being briefed on these UFO Pentagon matters. 
However on this point -  his administration's staff and the military advisors remain covert and silent on this matter. Could it be Trump knows nothing of this matter?
Here is what has thus far been released:
"In December, the Defense Department declassified two videos documenting encounters between U.S. Navy F-18 fighters and unidentified aircraft. The first video captures multiple pilots observing and discussing a strange, hovering, egg-shaped craft, apparently one of a “fleet” of such objects, according to cockpit audio. The second shows a similar incident involving an F-18 attached to the USS Nimitz carrier battle group in 2004.  
The videos, along with observations by pilots and radar operators, appear to provide evidence of the existence of aircraft far superior to anything possessed by the United States or its allies. Defense Department officials who analyze the relevant intelligence confirm more than a dozen such incidents off the East Coast alone since 2015. In another recent case, the Air Force launched F-15 fighters last October in a failed attempt to intercept an unidentified high-speed aircraft looping over the Pacific Northwest ."
Finally - if the Pentagon has authorized this matter in the way that it has - why is there reluctance among media to address this issue?

ET Contact: They are Here Awarded 2 EBEs

Press Release 



Filmmaker, Caroline Cory, wins two EBE awards for ET Contact: They are Here at the 27th Annual International UFO Congress, Saturday, February 17, 2018, in Fountain Hills, Arizona.

Toronto [ZNN] Highlighted in the film are members of the Institute for Exoconsciousness, the late Cynthia Crawford, an ET Sculptor, and Dr. Rebecca Hardcastle Wright, founder of the Institute. Both share their ET Experience in the film that combines interviews with scientists Dr. Rudy Schild, Dr. Garry Nolan, and Dr. Glen Rein.

ET Contact: They are Here features stories from individuals around the world who share similar accounts of extraterrestrial encounters with scientific evidence of a greater phenomenon at work.

Award-winning filmmaker and consciousness expert, Caroline Cory, says, “I believe it is necessary to approach the contact experience from a wider perspective and include many forms of interactions with non-human entities and realities as well as a scientific approach to the phenomenon. These topics are timely and people are ready.”

According to Dr. Hardcastle whose expertise is the role of consciousness in extraterrestrial contact, “Caroline’s film highlights the crucial role experiencers and scientists play in our culture’s integration of the extraterrestrial presence. The film helps us to understand how ET Experience relates to who we are as humans surrounded by a complex multiplicity of beings. Consciousness connects us with ETs and creates our relationship with one another."

Movie planned around Leslie Kean's book - UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record

Media Alert

Toronto [ZNN] Leslie Kean's book - published in 2010 will soon be the subject of a new film.

While setting a new standard in investigative journalism - shortly after its publication, Kean's book went to number 29 on the NY Times Bestseller list. 
This, and Kean's recent open commentary on radio and television about the US Pentagon UFO PROGRAM release, her exposé of the COMETA REPORT, her investigation of the 1965 Kecksburg PA UFO incident and her lawsuit against NASA to release what it knows about the Kecksburg case - demonstrates her tenacity and leadership in bringing together a broad range of information - converging lines of evidence - that the UFO matter has been discussed, analyzed and sequestered at the highest level of governance on the planet for 70 years.
The film will tell Leslie Kean's story about her reporting on UFOs and is said to recreate some of the events in her book. 

It remains to be seen how this film will influence public perceptions about the UFO phenomenon or how it may represent a major step forward in public disclosure.
