1) “Ironically, the only way any of this makes any sense at all is if we remember the near universal understanding that all authority ultimately derives from the fact that human beings are not autonomous; they are not self-creating but merely self-replicating, like von Neumann’s universal constructor, (more about this later in Book Three). Humans are a product of something else, some other factor, that the ancient sources tell us were the gods.

TDLs newest appearance.
The first few minutes are just greeting bs but then he goes into the usual spiel and some other things
.....The very beginning of it, I was playing a lot of very important people off each other. It was really kind of funny. I was just making things up. I was like. “Hey, I’m talking to so and so.” And I go to that guy and say, “Hey, I’m talking to so and so.....
...I didn’t take no for an answer. And I was of service... you can’t go into the topic of UFOs, knock on doors and think they’re going to read you into anything and tell you. It’s national security.
But I spent 20 some years studying this so I knew what was going on. And I had a couple different angles that you will never see on the internet. You’ll never see people talking about it in the UFOlogy kind of websites. And so I went in saying, “Look, this is what’s going on...
...there’s actually some really unnerving aspects as far…here’s one program where there’s hundreds of operatives that have been having contact and they’re trying to figure out what that’s all about. It’s wild.
...I can talk cause I don’t have what’s called a TS SCI Clearance like him. He [Elizondo] gets polygraphed every few months...
...I brought out the first three declassified videos of UFOs ever. They were given to me. To The Stars Academy brought them out. I assembled a team of very, very high ranking government officials ... They all came together because I created a vehicle that has three divisions: entertainment, science, and aerospace. And the whole goal of this is to create a vehicle for the disclosure of the UFO phenomenon and various other things.....
....So, for the past 24 months, we’ve been heavily involved briefing the Senate ... We’re the ones that set up the mechanism ...a formal reporting process of UFOs within the Navy. And the Navy came out and admitted that UFOs are real. That’s all us.
If you watched our show on the History Channel, the last episode, Harry Reid, Majority Leader of the Senate, ran the program that Lue was the program director, who now works for me...
...It’s coming... To The Stars...have been specifically involved in three things, …getting ready to bring out the stories, studying it with the public and really big AI database algorithms and all this different stuff and then the third thing is building the technology. So we’re active in all three of those.....
I think within the next three to five years, you’re going to start hearing rumblings of hearings....
...You know, I’m playing in these waters, I’m like, I’m consistently wowed by what they have to deal with and what the stakes are. That’s a big deal.
I remember when I was doing this early on, and I was just so gung ho about getting this stuff out. I gotta be a little careful with some of this. But I got brought into something. And they sat me down, and they said, you know... we need to know who the eff you are. We need to know who the eff you’re talking to. It was crazy. It was like two days of hardcore questioning.
I was pretty scared ... I talked my way out of this. And they said, “Well, let me just give you an idea of the stakes of what you’re playing with.” And something was said to me and I didn’t sleep for for like three nights. I was like, “Oh my God.” You just don’t have any idea as a civilian. The enormity of these things...
And so we make up these stories.

Far more intriguing, though, , is the next question that Pflock posed: “Was this actually nothing to do with real saucers but instead some sort of psychological warfare operation [italics mine]?” With the Newton revelations in hand, Pflock, no later than 1999, came to believe that back in the early fifties someone in the government, the intelligence community, or the military of the United States – and maybe even a swirling combination of all three – wanted the Aztec story further circulated. The purpose: as a means to try and convince the Russians that the U.S. military had acquired, or captured, alien technology. When, in reality, it had no such thing in its possession at all.
For the record, in 2002, when Pflock and I were corresponding regularly on the matter of these particularly curious revelations, he told me that he had been able to confirm who the two men that approached Newton worked for and specifically when their meeting with Newton occurred. The time-frame was late March 1950 and the pair of spooks came from a small group within the CIA. Slightly more than a year later, Pflock learned, that very same group was absorbed into the Psychological Strategy Board. The PSB was…”established by Presidential Directive on April 4, 1951 ‘to authorize and provide for the more effective planning, coordination, and conduct within the framework of approved national policies, of psychological operations.’ An abbreviated version of the Presidential Directive was released to the public on June 20, 1951.”

But they're not Kevin Day. With regard to Day, thinking more carefully about it, I'd agree with Fravor and plump for the latter choice: liar/BS artist.

To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science (TTSA) has acquired multiple pieces of metamaterials and an archive of initial analysis and research for their controversial ADAM Research Project. ADAM, an acronym for Acquisition and Data Analysis of Materials, is an academic research program focused on the exploitation of exotic materials for technological innovation.
The ownership of these assets, which were previously retained and studied by investigative journalist Linda Moulton Howe and are reported to have come from an advanced aerospace vehicle of unknown origin, allows TTSA to conduct rigorous scientific evaluations to determine its function and possible applications.
“The structure and composition of these materials are not from any known existing military or commercial application,” says Steve Justice, current COO of To The Stars Academy and former head of Advanced Systems at Lockheed Martin's "Skunk Works." “They’ve been collected from sources with varying levels of chain-of-custody documentation, so we are focusing on verifiable facts and working to develop independent scientific proof of the materials' properties and attributes.
In some cases, the manufacturing technology required to fabricate the material is only now becoming available, but the material has been in documented possession since the mid-1990's. We currently have multiple material samples being analyzed by contracted laboratories and have plans to extend the scope of this study.” TTSA will also seek to engage the potential partners who have expressed interest in helping accelerate ADAM research and development.
“If the claims associated with these assets can be validated and substantiated, then we can initiate work to transition them from being a technology to commercial and military capabilities,” adds Justice. “As noted in our October 2017 TTSA kickoff webcast, technologies that would allow us to engineer the spacetime metric would bring capabilities that would fundamentally alter civilization, with revolutionary changes to transportation, communication, and computation.”
A Public Benefit Corporation, To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science is a consortium of scientists, aerospace engineers, and creatives working collectively to empower gifted researchers the freedom to explore exotic science and technologies with the support to rapidly transition innovative ideas into world-changing products and services.
I thought they already had this stuff. Aren't these the same Art's Parts?
technologies that would allow us to engineer the spacetime metric
A theme that has come to the fore in advanced planning for long-range space exploration is the concept that empty space itself (the quantum vacuum, or spacetime metric) might be engineered so as to provide energy/thrust for future space vehicles. Although far-reaching, such a proposal is solidly grounded in modern physical theory, and therefore the possibility that matter/ vacuum interactions might be engineered for space-flight applications is not a priori ruled out . As examples, the current development of theoretical physics addresses such topics as warp drives, traversable wormholes and time machines that provide for such vacuum engineering possibilities [2-6]. We provide here from a broad perspective the physics and correlates/ consequences of the engineering of the spacetime metric.
At this point in the consideration of such nascent concepts, given our present level of technological evolution, it is premature to even guess at an optimum strategy, let alone attempt to form a critical path for the engineering development of such technologies. Nonetheless, only by inquiring into such concepts in a rigorous way can we hope to arrive at a proper assessment of the possibilities inherent in the evolution of advanced spaceflight technologies.
Let's have a G&T with ice to cool off.
"...technologies that would allow us to engineer the spacetime metric would bring capabilities that would fundamentally alter civilization..."
This study follows up on previous arguments that (1) interstellar travel for advanced civilizations is not a priori ruled out by physical principles and therefore may be practicable, and (2) such advanced civilisations may value the search for knowledge from uncontaminated species more than direct, interspecies communication, thereby accounting for apparent covertness regarding their presence.
The extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH), that intelligent life from ‘elsewhere’ in the universe could be visiting Earth, has become less implausible through suggestions that the velocity-of-light constraint— ‘they can’t get here from there’—is not as restricting as had been assumed previously. This restriction has its origin in the special theory of relativity, which we do not question. However, within the context of general relativity (GR) there are three approaches which may permit legitimately bypassing this limit, given sufficiently advanced (perhaps by millions of years!) knowledge of physics and technology.
It is also consistent with the failure of investigative panels to find that UFOs constitute any direct threat to national security.
