More and more US Navy pilots are reporting UFOs, to the point that the events have become a minor part of the news cycle. The reason for this is that nobody knows what significance they have, so, beyond the reports, there would appear to be little to say.
There have been a few analytical commentaries here and there. One in Popular Science which offers the suggestion that they must be classified devices that the Navy Department hasn’t been told about is typical of the reactions. The possibility that they may be alien craft is described as “infinitesimal,” and the idea that they might be neither thing never comes up. Most commentary has been nervous and inconclusive. Some has attempted to draw attention by describing the sightings as terrifying.
So, what is really going on?
Actually, a lot.
This is likely the beginning of a process of contact that I have been expecting for many years. A long time ago, I got the idea, I think from the visitors, that they would arrive in our midst when there was no longer any doubt in anybody’s mind that the planetary environment was collapsing and we were all facing extraordinary jeopardy.
I don’t think that we are very far from such an event. I don’t know what form it will take, but leading contenders in my mind are a combination of floods and droughts that so damage world agriculture that food prices soar and famines begin to take place.
All of the world’s breadbaskets are vulnerable. Right now, food prices in North America will rise in the fall because flooding retarded development of US and Canadian grain crops. An extraordinary heat wave in Europe is likely to result in reduced crop yields there, also. If the monsoon should fail, rice production will drop, with immediate effect in Asia.
There was a time when surpluses of basic grains were the order of the day. That has not been true for some years, as population growth has steadily increased demand.
Whether I’m right about the cause or not, I do think that there is going to be some kind of extraordinary environmental crisis soon, or we would not suddenly be seeing so much officially generated UFO video. I see this as the start of a process that leads exactly where I was led to believe years ago that it was going to lead.
In fact, the visitors put me under extreme pressure to finish a book that would describe my own experience of communicating with them over the past 30 years. It was a very difficult book to write, but it is now finished. I doubt that any major publisher will touch it, not only because they don’t like the subject, but also because UFO books don’t sell well and Whitley Strieber, in particular, is not a desirable author.
There’s nothing I can do about this except publish it myself and hope that, if something happens to draw interest to it, people will read it and use it in their own lives.
Most people assume that the visitors are beings from other planets in this universe. That could be partly true, I suppose, but it is not the whole truth. We are looking into the face of the most complex, strangest and most extraordinary manifestation of consciousness that has ever been known. The physical aspect is only a small part of it. Beyond that is a vast, ancient and complex consciousness that is entered into myriad forms and has seemingly endless ways of manifesting itself. To really engage with it, one has to look past all assumptions and simply open one’s mind to the impossible possible. There is no other way to put it.
Back in February of 2018, I had an argument with the visitors about communication. I wanted them to just spend 5 minutes in plain sight of everyone on Earth, which they can do easily. But they refused, saying that the result would be total confusion and chaos.
They were right. Every religious group on the planet would announce that they understood what this was. UFO people would weigh in with their theories. Every researcher who seeks the spotlight would rush to the internet and the media to offer leadership. The government, itself deeply confused, would claim that they were dangerous, lest people try to bypass its authority and come into direct contact. And, I am sure, other things would happen that would be equally useless.
Contact is possible, but if my own experience is any example, it is radically different from any sort of communication that we have ever known before. It is extremely challenging and I firmly believe that it can be dangerous. But it can also be rewarding beyond measure, and if enough of us do it right, there will be a lifeline thrown to us.
It will not be anything like anybody expects, but it will be effective. Given a lot of upheaval and a lot of difficulty, we can find our way out of the crisis that is unfolding all around us right now. Even the people who are so deluded or frightened as to claim that it isn’t happening will eventually join what will become a general effort to save ourselves.
The visitors will never hand us our future on a plate. If we can successfully engage with them, though, and give them a reason to help us, then that will happen. How? I cannot say. They are so inventive that I just can’t imagine. It will be effective, though.
But what do they want from us? My best guess, after all these years of living with them, is that they are so knowledgeable that they can no longer be surprised. They have lost access to the sense of wonder that is central to the human experience. When I open myself to them, they are able to share not my knowledge, but my innocence. They are able to reconnect with wonder.
For them, that is as precious an experience as can be.
