(ORDO NEWS) — Unidentified flying objects, or UFOs as they are called, have been seen by millions of people around the world and recorded in historical books, myths, legends and lore for thousands of years. However, many stories recorded in ancient texts are dismissed as myths and legends, and UFO sightings that have taken place in the last few centuries are classified as misinterpretations of natural phenomena, illusions or conspiracy theories.
Reality within the framework of the mythology of unidentified flying objects
History has shown us again and again that many so-called myths have a basis in fact. It is possible, and even likely, that stories and legends were a way for people to explain real – and perhaps incomprehensible – events, using the knowledge and beliefs of their time.
In support of this theory, a number of events described in mythology can be cited, which were once considered just fairy tales, and now archeology has proven that they existed.
A famous example is the city of Troy, which is central to Homer’s Iliad. For a long time, the city was considered a myth, but the discovery of the actual place by Heinrich Schliemann in 1868 allowed him to take his rightful place in history.
However, the remainder of the Iliad is still treated as myth and fantasy without any serious attempt to explore whether there might be more truth behind the story.
The same is true of the many tales of flying machines and unidentified flying objects that we find references in countless mythologies from cultures around the world.
You can often see people selectively deciding what is real and what is not, based on the unfounded assumption that ancient people were primitive and had little to no knowledge compared to us today.
On the contrary, many ancient civilizations, such as the Sumerians, the Indus Valley people, and the Egyptians, existed with a complex social structure, legal system, art, astronomy, mathematics, and technology, some of which are still not fully understood.
For example, the Antikythera Mechanism is a 2,200 year old mechanical device that is still not fully understood despite decades of research by the world’s leading scientists.
Ancient theory of astronauts and unidentified flying objects
The theme of flying objects and supernatural beings from beyond our world is one of those that we find many references to in mythology.
All these myths and legends, as well as archaeological evidence such as cave paintings, gave rise to a whole wave of theories that led to the emergence of the “theory of the ancient astronauts.”
This theory links all these ancient references and images to UFOs and claims that aliens visited Earth and made contact with humans in ancient and prehistoric times, influencing the development of human cultures, technologies and religions.
Unfortunately, there are many charlatans who have tried to cash in on this movement for profit or publicity, or have belittled it with caricatures of little green men, with the result that the view of the ancient astronauts has been widely criticized and attacked for lack of credibility.
Consequently, what is actually a plausible and possible explanation for what we see in ancient art and texts is now rarely considered by scholars who fear being ridiculed or seriously undermining their professional careers.
UFO sightings in recent history
But let’s leave the ancient past for a moment and consider only the last 80 years of human history. Millions of people around the world have witnessed unidentified flying objects. Many of these have been documented in detailed reports witnessed by police officers, pilots, astronauts, government officials, pilots, the military and, of course, ordinary citizens.
Some of the more famous cases were witnessed by thousands of people at the same time. Historical records indicate that UFO sightings increased during and after World War II, including the example of the famous Foo Fighters.
Although most cases can be explained either by celestial phenomena, airplanes, planets, weather events, military exercises, and in some cases by drug use or mental instability, there is still a small percentage of cases that defy any of these explanations.
This is what makes the phenomenon so significant, especially considering that sightings are often reported around military bases and airfields and therefore, at a minimum, are a matter of national security and aviation safety.
The undeniable fact is the presence of unidentified objects in our sky. This has been recognized by the major governments of the world simply because there have been official studies on the subject in the US, UK, Russia, Europe, China, South America and many other countries. All of these studies, on a case-by-case basis, have concluded that there is a certain percentage of phenomena that defy explanation.
In recent history, many countries have declassified their UFO research files, releasing thousands of documents under the Freedom of Information Act and making numerous UFO cases public. One of the recently released documents from the UFO archive in the UK showed how Churchill, concerned about the UFO problem, ordered the information to be closed for at least 50 years to prevent mass panic and the possibility of undermining religious beliefs. The document in question was published on the BBC news site in 2010.
By doing a thorough research on this topic, bypassing the obvious scams and fake stories, it can be clearly seen that unidentified flying objects do exist. So the question is not whether they exist or not, but rather what are they? Terrestrial or extraterrestrial origin? And what is their purpose?
Unidentified flying objects and the limits of science
Many eminent scientists have already stated that there must be other civilizations in the universe, and that it is statistically impossible that this should not be the case.
However, with our current knowledge of science and technology, we cannot yet provide the means for interstellar travel.
Since we have not detected intelligent life in our solar system, it is assumed that there is no way aliens could have come to Earth.
However, this argument is, of course, imperfect, because it is based on our own understanding of the universe and does not take into account the possibility of civilizations that may be millions of years ahead of ours. It is also based on the following assumptions:
We know everything about physics and reality, and therefore such distant travels are impossible.
We use our means to try to communicate with other civilizations (eg SETI’s attempts to pick up radio or communication signals), and since we are not picking up any OUR type of signals, nothing should exist.
We are looking for organic life forms just like us and planets with exactly the same conditions as ours.
Obviously, these arguments demonstrate the arrogance of humanity, which is perhaps just a baby in the universe. And this is not new. Throughout the history of mankind, in every single period of time, we have believed that we know the truth, only to have it later replaced by new knowledge.
“Now there is nothing new in physics to discover. All that remains is more and more accurate measurements.” (Lord Kelvin, 1901, physicist)
Quantum physics, still a relatively new and unexplored field of science, has shown that reality can be completely different than we think. Powerful telescopes have shown distant planets in solar systems that may have life. The theories of wormholes and warp drives have shown that, on a theoretical level, we can make interstellar travel. Yes, it would take us an incredible amount of energy to even think about trying to achieve something like this, so by our current standards it’s impossible, but theoretically it can be achieved.
“Now it seems quite clear that the Earth is not the only habitable planet. There is evidence that most of the stars in the sky have planetary systems.
Recent research on the origin of life on Earth suggests that the physical and chemical processes leading to the origin of life occur rapidly in early history. Most of the planets within our Milky Way galaxy—perhaps up to a million—are inhabited by technological civilizations that have outpaced our own.
Interstellar space flight is far beyond our current technical capabilities, but there does not seem to be a fundamental physical objection that, from our point of view, excludes the possibility of their development by other civilizations.” Carl Sagan, Ph.D. (last professor of astronomy and space sciences, Cornell university)
Reluctance to deal with unidentified flying objects
The reason why the scientific community does not take UFOs seriously is because the topic is widely ridiculed in both the media and academia, and false information is being circulated all over the place. For similar reasons, the military, astronauts, pilots, and other professional categories are reluctant to talk because either they were forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement or out of fear that their careers will be ruined. That is why we see many examples of deathbed confessions.
One such case was that of astronaut Gordon Cooper, who told the world about his experience with UFOs while flying in the Mercury capsule in 1963. Before his death, he said: “For many years I lived with a secret, a secret imposed on all specialists in the field of astronautics. Now I can discover that every day in the USA our radar instruments fix objects of unknown shape and composition.”
Although great efforts are made to ridicule and humiliate anyone who supports the existence of UFOs, the fact remains that there are many high-profile cases of sightings of unidentified flying objects that are backed by reliable evidence and should not be dismissed.
Recorded UFO sightings with extensive witness support
What follows is a very limited list of conclusive evidence for the existence of unidentified flying objects over the past 60 years.
November 1942 – The La Incident, known as the Battle of Los Angeles
It all happened in the early morning of February 25, 1942. A plane flew over Los Angeles County, which caused an air raid alarm (this was in the midst of World War II). Searchlights and guns were aimed at the aircraft for an hour. The photo below appeared in the LA Times in an article about the Battle of Los Angeles.
It clearly shows the night defense in response to an air raid. The aircraft was not hostile and apparently was not damaged in the attack. The government said the plane they fired on was an unidentified flying object.
December 1980 – Rendlesham Forest Incident, Suffolk, UK
This incident occurred with a group of American military personnel stationed at a military base in Suffolk, where the nuclear weapons storage center was located. For three nights in a row, objects were observed in the sky above the base, in some cases illuminating the storage of nuclear weapons.
On the third night, about two dozen military personnel were sent into the forest to investigate one group of mysterious lights. The servicemen reported seeing the spacecraft on the ground in close proximity to themselves and three extraterrestrial beings. One soldier claimed to have touched the ship.
This entire incident was filmed and photographed by one of the servicemen, but all photos and videos were removed by the US military. When the British government released the UFO files, there were no documents on the Rendlesham incident, according to BBC News.
November 1986 Japan Air Lines Flight 1628 over Alaska
In November 1986, the Japanese crew of a cargo plane witnessed the appearance of three huge unidentified objects while flying over Alaska, USA.
The sighting came to worldwide attention when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that it was going to formally investigate the sighting, as the Air Traffic Control Center in Anchorage, Alaska reported that a UFO had been spotted on radar.
The unidentified flying objects in this case were tracked by both ground and airborne radars, witnessed by experienced airline pilots, and confirmed by the FAA department chief.
April 1990 – Belgian UFO Wave, Petit Rechain Belgium
The Belgian UFO wave began in November 1989. The events of November 29 were documented by at least thirty different groups of eyewitnesses and three separate groups of police officers. All reports concerned a large object flying at a low altitude.
The object itself was flat, triangular in shape, with lights underneath. This gigantic ship made no sound as it moved slowly through the Belgian landscape. The UFO wave peaked in Belgium on the night of March 30-31, 1990.
That night, unknown objects were tracked by radar, pursued by two Belgian Air Force F16 aircraft, photographed and approximately 13,500 people on the ground were seen – 2,600 of them submitted written statements detailing what they saw. After the incident, the Belgian Air Force released a report detailing the events of that night.
March 1997 – Phoenix Lights, Arizona, USA
Phoenix Lights (also identified as “Phoenix Lights”) was a UFO sighting that occurred in Phoenix, Arizona and Sonora, Mexico on Thursday, March 13, 1997. Lights of varying descriptions were seen by thousands of people between 7:30 pm and 10:30 pm local time for about 300 miles (480 km) from the Nevada border, through Phoenix, and out to the outskirts of Tucson.
Eyewitnesses claim to have seen a huge square-shaped UFO containing five ball-shaped lights or possibly light-emitting engines. Fife Symington, the governor at the time, was one of the witnesses to this incident; he later referred to the unidentified flying object as “otherworldly”.
October 2004 – Osaka Airport, Japan
On the night of August 30, a cluster of colorful lights was seen in the sky over Osaka.
Several people reported on Twitter that they saw a group of triangular-shaped lights flashing green, red and white in the night sky over the city of Izumi in Osaka Prefecture.
The sighting caused a stir on Twitter after one user tweeted, “Everyone in Osaka, get outside! There’s a UFO!”, prompting others to take their cameras and take pictures of the mysterious, glowing and unidentified flying object.
November 2006, O’Hare Airport, USA
At approximately 4:15 pm local time on Tuesday, November 7, 2006, federal authorities received a report that a group of twelve employees at Chicago O’Hare Airport had witnessed a saucer-shaped metal aircraft hovering over Gate C-17.
The object was first spotted by an gang member who was pushing back United Airlines Flight 446 from Chicago to Charlotte, North Carolina. An employee informed the crew of Flight 446 about an object above their plane. It is assumed that the pilot and co-pilot also saw the object.
Several independent witnesses outside the airport also saw the object. According to John Hilkevich of the Chicago Tribune, “The disc was visible for about two minutes and was seen by about a dozen United Airlines employees, from pilots to supervisors, who heard the chatter on the radio and ran out to look at it.”
May 2007, UFO, Lima, Peru
The incident took place in May 2007 at 2 pm local time in Lima, Peru.
A series of moving lights appeared in the sky, resembling an armada of flying objects. The story was reported on the news and seen by thousands of people.
July 2010 – Xiaoshan Airport, China
An unidentified flying object that disrupted air traffic in Hangzhou for an hour on Wednesday, July 10, 2010. The crew of the plane, preparing to descend, first spotted the object around 20:40 and notified air traffic control about it. Aviation authorities responded within minutes, landing outbound flights and redirecting inbound flights to Ningbo and Wuxi airports. 18 flights were affected.
A spokesman for the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC) confirmed to ABC News that the matter is under investigation. He declined to give further details.
However, a day after the sighting, an anonymous source told China Daily that the authorities had already identified the UFO after investigation, but could not publicly release the information because “it is related to the military.”
Consequences of Disclosing Information on Unidentified Flying Objects
Many will say that the above examples are irrefutable proof of the existence of extraterrestrial UFOs. So why doesn’t the public know about it?
Imagine what the consequences of disclosure would be and what that would mean. Recognition that extraterrestrial civilizations visited the Earth would mean that many myths and legends of the past are actually based on reality.
Disclosure of information will suggest that for thousands of years, humanity has been influenced by otherworldly beings, which in the past were considered gods. The disclosure of information will completely change the status quo and the balance of power in society, as well as turn everything we know about human history on its head.
The recognition of the UFO phenomenon is an event capable of producing a global revolution in all areas of our life today – technology and energy supply, communication and ecology, society and religion.
Is this what governments and corporations fear – shifting the balance and losing their positions of power and control? Or are those in power afraid to rewrite our human history?
“When the long-awaited solution to the UFO problem arrives, I believe that it will be not just the next small step in the path of science, but a mighty and completely unexpected quantum leap.” (Dr. J. Allen Hynek, US Air Force Scientific Advisor)
