On Wednesday, July 26, 2023, the Sub Committee on National Security will hold a hearing titled “Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena: Implications on National Security, Public Safety, and Government Transparency.”The hearing will feature firsthand witness accounts and whistle-blower testimony, discussing the possible extraterrestrial origin of UAPs and unmasking potential government coverups. 

Are we on the cusp of learning the truth about UFOs and extraterrestrial life? 

Absolutely not.  

The US Government has been lying to us about the existence of UFOs and Aliens from the start. Of course they have; that shouldn’t surprise anyone. However, you may be surprised to know that whatever your thoughts on the subject are, most likely, it’s precisely what they want you to think. Why? Because the United States Government just might be the greatest Sci-Fi author of all time! 

Hyperbole aside, the US intelligence community has been engaging in various disinformation campaigns for decades. This is done in a myriad of ways. One of the most common, well-documented methods is disseminating the information directly to select members of the UFO community. Rosemary Ellen Guiley, William (Bill) Moore, and Linda Moulton Howe of Ancient Alien fame are notable examples. This tactic is nothing new; the intelligence community had perfected the strategy with Operation Mockingbird, a program in which they disseminated (and still do) propaganda through members of the media. 

One particularly dark example of this tactic is that of Paul Bennewitz, a physicist, and entrepreneur based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In the late 70s, Bennewitz became convinced that he had evidence of extraterrestrial activities taking place at the nearby Kirtland Air Force Base. He claimed to have captured UFO sightings and signals he believed were from alien spacecraft. When he brought his findings to the authorities at Kirtland, they dispatched Airforce Intelligence Officer Richard Doty.  

Richard Doty is something of a bogeyman. It was his job to deflect public perception away from top-secret programs that the military was engaged in. He did this by encouraging Bennewitz’s beliefs in UFOs and Aliens. Not only did Doty admit that aliens were real, but he created many of the narratives of cattle mutilations, an underground joint human-alien base, and an alien war associated with Dulce. Eventually, this caught the attention of other, possibly independently operating intelligence agencies that began targeting Bennewitz. Agents began broadcasting fake extraterrestrial messages to him, breaking into his house, and stealing or tampering with his data. Ultimately, the objective was to discredit Bennewitz and make him look ridiculous. Unfortunately, the strain and paranoia caused a mental break, and Bennewitz was hospitalized.  

The story of Bennewitz, Dulce, and Doty is fascinating but far too massive to do justice here. However, it has been speculated that what Bennewitz witnessed was Skunk Works testing of the F117 Stealth Fighter and possibly early drone technology. An interesting footnote to the Dulce myths, albeit not definitively confirmed, is that the cattle mutilations were perpetrated by military helicopters outfitted with brightly colored lights to make them look like UFOs. The objective, allegedly, was to take medical samples of the livestock in the region covertly. Apparently, there had been a secret underground nuclear detonation several years earlier to test the feasibility of using a nuclear weapon to access oil reserves.  

It is easy to see the practical applications of such subterfuge in covering up sensitive technology. In fact, the Soviets used UFOs to cover up ICBM tests throughout the cold war. But is it still viable today? I think it is, and I think they are using their newfound openness on UAPs to distract from something big. Really big. 

We’ve all seen the footage of US Military craft tracking what appear to be UFOs, and we’ve seen them execute impossible aerial maneuvers. The technology of these vehicles is beyond anything known to man, and further, the g-force implied in their movements would kill a human pilot. Therefore, it has to be extraterrestrial, right? 

Maybe, maybe not. 

There are countless conspiracy theories involving crashed UFOs and recovered technology. Many of these stories are championed by agents like Richard Doty. But what if the answer were simple? What if these UAPs are entirely manmade and have no extraterrestrial influences? 

Consider zero-point energy. Bear with me a moment. Zero-point energy is the lowest possible energy state that a physical system can have. This energy exists due to the inherent quantum fluctuations in particles, causing them to constantly vibrate or oscillate, even in a state of apparent rest. Contrary to its name, zero-point energy is not zero; it represents the minimal energy that cannot be removed entirely from a system, even in its most stable and motionless state. Without going into a deep dive into quantum theory, the idea is that energy exists everywhere and in infinite amounts. If we could tap into and harness this energy, it would provide an endless source of clean energy that would effectively be free. While this theory has been around for a while, it remains speculative and controversial. However, if it were developed, without a doubt, it would be the single most profound discovery in human existence. 

This is relevant because one of the most commonly proposed zero-point energy uses is faster-than-light spacecraft. Physics, as we know it, states that nothing can travel faster than light. Essentially the faster you go, the greater your mass towards infinity. A craft utilizing zero-point energy would basically perform oppositely. The more energy it absorbed, the faster it would go, but the lower its mass and gravity would be. The field created by the vehicle would compress space-time in front of it while expanding it in its wake and leaving the craft itself utterly unaffected by gravity in the center of this field. 

When imagining an aircraft operating on these principles, it would behave very much like the UAPs captured by military flight recorders. It would be capable of incredible speed and seemingly impossible maneuverability. Moreover, it would do so without detriment to the pilot. Theoretically, the “engine” for such a craft would utilize two oscillating coils surrounded by a coolant system. Descriptions of the design are consistent with the saucer-shaped craft mythologized in the late 40s and 50s.  

A possible timeline for zero-point craft dates to the end of WWII. German scientists allegedly developed a prototype called “De Glocke,” The Bell, toward the war’s end. The Allies confiscated this technology, and the scientists involved were extradited to the United States with the others in Project Paper Clip in 1945. Interestingly enough, it was only two years later that Kenneth Arnold had his famous “flying saucer” encounter near Mount Rainier. In 1965, a craft fitting the description of De Glocke crashed in Kecksburg, Pennsylvania, in an event widely reported by the media.  

Of course, all of this is speculation. The science is theoretical. But is it any less believable than splitting the atom? What is more believable, that Aliens are probing our butts, taunting us with high-speed fly byes, but are too shy or morally attached to some “prime directive” not to make contact? Or that the United States Government is possession of advanced, world-changing technology, but withholding it for nefarious purposes? I know I’ll be watching this Wednesday to find out.  

A final thought on zero-point energy; if it or some comparable technology existed, it would shake the world to its core, upsetting the entire balance of power. It doesn’t take much imagination to wonder why such a thing would be met with resistance. History has not been kind to those intrepid inventors who attempted such revolutions. Even Tesla was canceled, branded a madman, and discounted by mainstream science. He was the lucky one. Others have met darker fates, but more on that next week.
