By that I mean, is this something that totally rearranges what you felt your place in this world meant.
My paradigm is not dependent upon Earth being the only place with intelligent life. I would be thrilled to find otherwise.
Unless, you know, heat rays.

All you are directly concerned with and mention for why no disclosure to date pale in comparison to the real problem that you and many others cannot face and accept. At what point in the UFO situation do you stop accepting what is known because it affects your core beliefs? Advanced craft from distant worlds with beings in them? Virtually a given, right, even if you wonder about them coming from alternate universes, dimensions or realities. You can accept that, righ? Creatures that have technology, an advance civilization and enough curiosity to visit us for perhaps various means, right?
What do you believe about the almost universal claim by abductees that the ETs undeniably have the telepathic ability to read and "talk" directly to our minds and have used their mental powers to influence others in their actions and deeds, in other words, they have mind-control capabilities. Perhaps only a limited scale but used on many if not all abductees.
Is not that about the greatest secret of the UFOfolk that must be kept from humans? Every other, normal, situation that we can dredge forth for denying the disclosure pales in the face of their abilities of mind control. We can imagine that when disclosure happens, by chance or plan, that our governments will be quick to insure us that the ETIs have agreed to not use those efforts in their dealings with us. 'Sounds good, but if their innate abilities allows them to know what is in our minds as a matter of course, of citizen and official alike, how can we ever feel safe, free and not violated? It would be a god-like talent that they would possess over us mere humans with no respite.
It would mean the end of humanity as we have know it. Personally, I see that as the plan now in effect in multiple ways.
In 2014 NASA gave just over $1 million dollars, to The Center of Theological Inquiry, based in New Jersey, to study "the societal implications of astrobiology."
