The video to the STS-80 Shuttle mission is very intriguing. It clearly shows the mainfestation and movement of physical objects, whose motion is
clearly innate to themselves, outside that of human control or interference. Of course, we are not going to gain a total consensus of agreement
amongst us as to what they are or signify; some of us accept things too eagerly, whilst others...hardly ever.
There's a lot of circumstantial evidence out there in the form of anecdotes, images, film, expert and non-expert testimony to events, and in order to
make for oneself a informed opinion as to the veracity of NASA footage like the STS-80 mission, one needs to be acquainted with a lot of that
evidence. Out of it all, my own personal conviction is that we are being purposefully sensitised to the presence of 'intelligent' extraterrestrial
lifeforms. I should not think that we are awaiting 'disclosure', but more of a 'validation'. We do not need to be told that we are being visited,
but merely to have what we already know to be verified...that is the only disclosure required.
I doubt, however, that such verification will be forthcoming for some time. We are not at peace with each other, and we have the wrong people in
positions of power and control, whom I suspect have no innate sense of 'awe' as to the profound meaning of the presence of other intelligent
lifeforms, especially lifeforms that demonstrate a technological capacity far in excess of our own.
We have other, seemingly more pressing concerns to deal with. Terrorism, climate change, economic failures, political instabilities, the grabbing of
other countries' resources, etc...the verification of visitations from deep space by other intelligent lifeforms seems somewhat pedestrian, no matter
how momentous that verification would be. Yet, such verification just might well save us all from our ourselves. It may well put a pause to our
obsessive backward slide towards new, more darker ages. It may provide the spark of ignition to re-enlighten our consciousness to a more humane
embracing of each other...but such are hopes and dreams; and one dream for man is that he is able to gain a 'relative' reference for his existence,
and to have verification that he is 'not alone' in the universe, would help fulfill that particular dream. I hope someday that it is.
