I thought the "experts" who thought those effects were anomalous were completely incompetent idiots, because I've seen those exact same effects a hundred times before in my own photography so I don't have any doubt what they are. But if they are trying to do everything through CGI instead of using a real camera, maybe that explains how they could be so totally clueless about how real cameras work with real film. If just amazes me how many people were impressed or fooled by that nonsense. The only anomaly I can see is that so many people can be fooled by such an obvious and mundane effect as a time exposure.

Hynek believed Dorthy Izatt's experiences were a truly anomalous phenomena. As well-documented as they are, it's hard to see her films/experiences as anything but anomalous.
Dorothy's films also stand up excellently against professional scrutiny. They've been subject to experts from ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) rather than the usual alleged "verifications" by the infamous likes of Jim Dilettoso.
We do have two levels here:
(1) a genuine unknown physical phenomenon with an apparent alien intelligence,
(2) an undercurrent setup by groups capable of using decoys and false sightings, influencing public perception through the believers.
"Hey, all that stuff is nonsense, relax, it's not that bad, you don't have to worry, the reality is this..." - and then you give them the real story."
“I gotta tell you, it’s a little disappointing. People always ask me about Roswell and the aliens and UFOs, and it turns out the stuff going on that’s top secret isn’t nearly as exciting as you expect. In this day and age, it’s not as top secret as you’d think.”
It’s a scene that could be straight out of secret agent thriller: A military general and a regular citizen meet in the back booth of an airport restaurant to discuss top secret information. In reality, this actually happened to musician and UFO aficionado Tom DeLonge, who recalls his first meeting with a government official in the latest installment of Rolling Stone’s “The First Time.” “The general looked me in the eyes and said, ‘It was the Cold War and everything we did at the time was because nuclear war could break out at any given day,’” DeLonge remembers. “‘And somewhere in there we stumbled upon the UFO phenomenon.’ And I remember right when he said that, my heart just started beating like crazy in my chest, I got all the chills. The next conversation that happened for an hour at that booth was extraordinary, life changing and scary.”
But then the author, UNC Professor D.W. Pasulka, became a believer herself.
That’s weird enough—but the weirdest part is, after reading the book, so did I. What happened? Three things.
First, Pasulka was seduced by the largely anonymous network of scientists who study the UFO phenomenon, known as the “Invisible College.
One of the most compelling figures in American Cosmic is “Tyler,” an Elon-Musk-type billionaire polymath who’s patented numerous biotech inventions, flipped several companies, flies in private jets, and was a NASA engineer until the Challenger disaster shook him to his core.
Tyler is certain that several of his own patented biotech inventions were communicated to him by alien intelligence. “I know I’ve established connection [with the non-human intelligence] when the thoughts that show up in my mind don’t seem like my own,” Tyler tells Pasulka. “They are unfamiliar. With practice you can feel the difference.”
Finally, there was the hard evidence itself. At one point, Tyler leads Pasulka and “James,” a scientist-experiencer colleague (“experiencer” is the term for someone who has experienced what they believe to be a UFO sighting or contact), to a purported UFO crash site. They find a strange object, and “James’ preliminary analyses of the materials, months later, made it hard to believe they were made on Earth. In fact, he said he wasn’t sure, given their structure, that they could be made anywhere.” Pasulka quickly dives into third-person, religious-studies mode, observing how this finding changed the belief structures of Tyler and James, and calling the site a “sacred” site for the UFO religion—but it’s clear she is disturbed as well. In fact, the further Pasulka delves into what conspiracy theorist (and UFO true believer) Robert Anton Wilson called “chapel perilous,” the weirder things get. Invisible College meetings with actual Men in Black, i.e., government agents. Countless personal testimonies of people who are not only not nuts themselves but who feel isolated and terrified by having to choose between all their skeptical friends on the one hand, and a bunch of weirdos on the other. Compelling narratives from Tyler and others of extremely improbable bits of information, foreknowledge, and innovation that seem to emerge out of nowhere and are later validated by objective measurement.

Yeah, "some form of the IDH" was my prediction. They did come up with PSP or some such at SWR.
Which I forget what it stands for exactly. I thought John Alexander coined it but it may have been a NIDS approved designation.
Zondo seems to want to humanize it so maybe something softer?
I may be wrong as to where they are taking it but the hints seem to be headed that way. They surely owe their old pal Valle some kind of tip of the hat though. Then again how much was Vallee borrowing from Keel?

Wikileaks revealed DeLonge had contact with Robert F. Weiss (never a General) ,General William N. McCasland (Commander, Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio) and former General Michael Carey (whose last military assignment was Special Assistant to the Commander, Air Force Space Command.
Any ideas on who "Tyler" might be ?

To paraphrase: "What if they don't have bodies." I'm going all in and saying some form of the IDH is coming.
