The more I read in this particular ATS forum, the more I'm starting to lean towards UFO's being real, but with the Governments of the world being
being in the dark on exactly what they are. You can't have literally thousands of military and government officials see and handle actual evidence
for 60 years without something SOLID and TOUCHABLE making it's way into the mainstream world. Is this a sensible and logical conclusion, assuming
the many historical reports are factual?
The continued lack of definitive physical evidence available to the general public is the biggest problem with trying to determine who is keeping
secrets about what. The best we as ordinary slobs can do is try to sift through the disinformation and extrapolate from questionable public data,
including eyewitness reports, photos, videos, etc.
Because we can see UFOs and take an occasional photo or video of them, they probably exist in some way that we can understand and they interact with
us on a "normal" level of reality.
With the military essentially being in the business of looking out for and responding to possible threats, it's a reasonable supposition that
they've had much more direct contact with these things. They probably have hours of gun-camera footage, satellite images, and radar information on
Because the military has had (and likely still does) active orders to acquire anything that leaves anything physical behind, it's possible they may
have pieces of these things sitting in vaults somewhere, being scrutinized. More or less complete craft? Alien bodies? Maybe, although I personally
think something that big would be impossible to keep secret. Something on a smaller scale, though...
There's also the activity of these UFO things themselves. One possible explanation as to why they're so good at keeping out of the public eye is
that they are able to move through time in such away that they can "plug the cracks" before they become problematic. Crashed ships or other
artifacts are recovered before they're lost. The only hope of retaining any UFO artifacts, then, is to minimize the number of people who know about
them, so that it doesn't raise a red flag to the pre-recovery team. That will automatically limit the military's ability to study these things and
find out what makes them tick. So the government has limited information, and are not able to use their full resources to completely figure them out.
One recurring bit of information (disinformation) that strikes me as having the ring of truth is that the recovered materials offer few if any clues
as to how they function. Metals are a bit purer than ordinary, but nothing special. Propulsion systems don't have recognizably active components.
Control systems suggest some kind of link between the pilots and the ships, but nobody can figure out how it's actually accomplished. Completely
This seems true to me because I'm of the opinion that few people understand that when dealing with these alien things, people don't think nearly
"alien" enough. Way too many people just think of aliens as creatures as essentially like us, that fly around ships that are basically advanced
versions of what we already fly, that use physics and mathematics with which we are already familiar. I think those are mistaken assumptions.
So what we have are the government and military, who have a few bits of evidence - not much more than you and I have - but very little understanding
about them. And rather than admit their own ignorance about UFOs, it's much better to keep it a secret, and wait until research and chance give them
Just some speculation. Difficult, if not impossible to verify unless you're on the "inside," than maybe not even then. Deception and secrecy run
deep, because they work so well.
