Yes. It is difficult to measure quantum conditions without affecting them. Impossible, in fact. Please don't say that you think it has something to do with consciousness.
and since observation certainly affects QM outcomes,

My guess is that it is all "of this world." Our tech (real or claimed), odd weather tricks, that sort of thing.

All available information (and there's a fair amount of it) indicates that the USG is a Russian Doll within Doll sort of thing, where everyone assumes there is something there, if ONLY they had higher clearance, while the final guy with ridiculous clearance, also wishes to find someone more in the know than they themselves are. In the final analysis, if you take out 'metaphysical things', you are left with only the Null Hypothesis.
Regarding the USG and Metaphysical Things
The USG has been infiltrating occult groups since forever, and there certainly have been many of the same individuals referenced in the previous section who are poking around with ghosts and such, on the taxpayer's dime. Now there are the two major divisions, that being the Christian "it's all demons" (and some Gnostics "It's Archons") and then the non-religiously inclined pseudoscience/occultists types.
I highly suspect that the reason the USG isn't 'interested in the 'real UFOs' is that they have chased it around a whole bunch, and while they 'believe in it', Casper has not cooperate for them either, and has not allowed himself to be captured and dissected for them either.
But if 'real disclosure' is something like "sometimes occult critters / ghosts" really exist, that's the LAST thing the USG would put out there. Instead, they'd ram nuts and bolts UFOs down our throats, which is exactly what they've been doing since day one.
Now of course, the false belief in nuts and bolts UFOs has been vigorously put forward by the USG, (either by promoting as in Rosewell) or even more effectively by denying (you want what is denied to you), to cover black project operations.
Good or Evil Spirits
If there really is something 'spiritual' out there, whether you want to call it 'spirit' or 'demon' or 'djinn' or 'plasma' or 'Boltzmann brains'; it doesn't matter what you call it, all those concepts are wrong IMHO, the question always comes down to, are the 'hypothetical spirits' 'good' or 'evil'?
Well, humans killed about 1 billion cattle in the year 2014; those innocent, peaceful, inoffensive cattle.. I had one as a pet as a kid.. it licked my hand and wanted me to pet it. Later that year, I found it's carcass hanging upside down from tree as it was being skinned and gutted by my stepfather. The same stepfather who killed my pet rabbit, fried it up and forced me to eat it.
So are humans 'evil'? the cattle would probably think so, if they were a bit more aware.
We've no evidence that sort of thinking is rational or effective in any way. Living creatures compete with some, predate on some, and cooperate with some.. if 'hypothetical spirits' exist, almost certainly they would live based on 'self-interest' like any other living thing, and it would be pointless to call them 'good or evil'.
