NP: UFO Phenomenon May Hold Darker Secrets
By James W. Astrada
With the constant buzz pending concerning the Mayan prediction on the end of the world scenario, aliens involved as the cause has always been considered a possibility. Whether they descend from the sky in ships attacking the vulnerable human population unbeknownst of their existence or await our destruction by our own hands, some are taking the necessary precautions armed with weapons that can help defend from alien attackers.
According to Britain’s former UFO advisor, the country has the firepower to defend itself from a possible UFO invasion. Amongst the heavy artillery stockpiled in case of danger included airplanes, drones, and “weapons” that can be used against aliens from space. According to sources, Nick Pope who has worked with the Ministry of Defense for 21 years assured that although there wasn’t any “war plan,” Britain had sophisticated firepower to get the job done. He candidly stated that this weaponry owned by the government was considered ahead of our current technology:
“We do have several prototype aircraft and drones and other weapons you won’t see on the news for another 10-15 years so if we did face a threat from the unknown then even if there is no Torchwood around now, there would be something like it by then and they certainly would have some great kit to help in the fight. Look at the Taranis, which is a prototype made by BAE Systems. It looks for all the world like a spaceship in the hanger.”
Although the major consensus by the government assured that UFO were not a threat or even real, one of Pope’s jobs was to investigate UFO sightings each year in the U.K. (numbering from 200-300) between 1991-94. This type of investigation draws many questions on just how non-threatening these entities might be if such a plan was ever created to begin with. Although the majority of the public is very unaware of any government’s clandestine activities (including UFO), there is no real assurance on just how benign or dangerous other sentient beings are from other worlds. Not enough information is given to the public to assess if any type of contact can be seen as positive, and most of the agencies in charge of alerting the public (i.e. SETI, NASA) are still convincing the public that the search for ETs are simply “microorganisms” and the “investigation” is still underway.
Pope’s discoveries based on sightings documented that the majority of people who viewed these spacecraft maneuvering through the sky had extraordinary capabilities. Clearly alarmed that these craft will pose a problem to ordinary jet fighters or current technology, the project went under way to develop a sort of defense against a more powerful force. Pope added that defense scientists were sure of some sort of “exotic” propulsion system was utilized to create this effect.
When the rhetorical “do aliens exist” question arose, Pope responded with a more logically rational answer that could shed light on why humans are visited:
“I am absolutely convinced that elsewhere in the universe there must be other life and I am also convinced that some of that is going to be intelligent. I am open-minded about the possibility that some of that life is visiting us down here but just as our space programme is reaching out to find out what is out there, it seems other life forms could be motivated by the same thing.”
Unless full disclosure is given on what is really out there, the curious minds will have to await contact to decide whether these sentient beings are here to help us or destroy us based on our human history. As far as the description on what these ET look like, Pope’s commentary included:
“One of the things being discussed at the Royal Society is that we could be dealing with artificial life – a post-biological universe of cyborgs and robots. I suspect there are thousands and millions of civilisations out there. We all hope it’s just going to be ET-style fluffy aliens as opposed to a terrifying alien invasion.”
He even stated one sighting that he believed was adequate proof of ET existence in the Rendlesham Forest in 1980 where witnesses observed a UFO land between two military bases. Why the UFO was interested in military bases might be the reason why many governments have become defensive and cautious. On the other side of the spectrum, the UFOs that have visited over the last 30 years or so might have viewed this stockpiling of defense weapons as offensive. Whatever the case may be, when forces beyond comprehension become involved with more primitive races or societies, the end result is never in the favor of the weaker force.
Another view on this phenomenon concerning UFOs show that most researchers searching for extraterrestrial life outside this planet are dying under “mysterious circumstances” based on a 30 year study. Former U.S. government adviser and amateur astronomer Timothy Good presented many disturbing occurrences that involved scientists from all over the world searching for extrasolar life at the international conference in Amsterdam. The evidence displayed that those who were affected were not interested in chasing UFO craft, only those actually looking for life, including astrophysicists.
Examples included Morris K. Jessup who committed suicide despite his bestsellers on intelligent life outside Earth. According to sources, Jessup was killed by carbon monoxide poisoning for reason unknown. Many speculations included his knowledge on the Philadelphia Experiment and the Carlos Allende letters were the real cause of his death and not a suicide. Another U.S. scientist Professor James Edward McDonald, who was head of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Earth and was also known for researching “unidentified aerospace objects”, was also found dead with a shot to the head with a suicide note beside him. Although many sources stated that he planned his suicide much earlier, questions on why this decision arose are beyond comprehension. Edward Ruppelt who mysteriously died of a cardiovascular “crisis” at 37 in 2001, led a project of studying UFOs of the United States and was connected to the infamous Project Blue Book experiment. William Milton Cooper who was gunned down by police in his home in Arizona was stockpiling weapons to defend against a secret government led by aliens. Considered delusional, Cooper accused the U.S. government of hiding the truth about aliens. He also threatened harmless residents that he believed were after him and worked for the authorities. After Cooper stated that anyone would be shot entering his private residence, one cop suffered injuries as another shot and killed the researcher. The story that was given to the press was that Cooper was trying to avoid tax evasion and was issued a warrant for his arrest.
Professor Arshad Sharif and Professor Vimal Dazibay who both worked on the development for electronic based weapons for the British government, both committed suicide in 1987. Sharif hung himself while a few days later Dazibay threw himself head first off of the Bristol Bridge. In 1987 a series of bizarre deaths struck scientists who were involved in space programs. One scientist named Avtar Singh-Guide went “missing” and declared dead after investigations led nowhere. Another scientist named Peter Pippel was mysteriously run over by his car in his garage. David Sands committed suicide by crashing his car into a building for unknown reasons. Mark Wiesner committed suicide by hanging himself, Stuart Gooding was murdered, David Greenhalgh fell off a bridge, Shani Warren was dead by drowning and finally Michael Baker was killed in a car accident. All of these scientists died under strange circumstances in the same year.
American writer Sidney Sheldon believed that all of these scientists died due to knowledge concerning aliens. All of these scientists developing space weapons suffered bizarre deaths that many conspiracy theorists blame on secret government programs that now decommissioned (according to the government). The standard belief was that they knew too much and could of compromised sensitive information, hence they were eliminated. Although programs such as Blue Book, Aquarius, Area 51, Majestic 12/ Global Agenda 2000 and GEIPAN are in the center of conspiracy and controversy, many still believe that the government is hiding the truth about life outside our planet and rightfully so.
While UFOs will be the center of ridicule, fantasy or reality, these deaths may show that either something is amiss concerning alien life. While the media continues to portray to the public that most of these politicians that do reveal something concerning UFOs are “joking,” perhaps the subject should be fully investigated before considering the reports are true. Recently, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev revealed that Russia had encounters with UFOs and that he had access to secret files. When Medvedev referenced the movie Men in Black III (2012), as to how aliens are among us unseen, the media quickly made a mockery of the report and deemed it a joke. Perhaps Hollywood movies are the only manner in which these controversial subjects can be discussed without the losing one’s life. Whatever the reasons may have been for all the scientists that committed suicide while working on space weapons and program opens many questions and concerns on what exactly is transpiring in these laboratories.
