(ORDO NEWS) — As Carter emphasizes, in the current “post-conspiracy era” catchphrases from his offspring have become a harsh reality, but the government still continues to lie to its citizens and hide information from them.
“When we were working on The X-Files, preparing the first set for Agent Mulder’s office, I came up with a poster with a picture of a UFO and the inscription I want to believe.
And I think this phrase reflects the way most people view the question of the existence of extraterrestrial life – they are not absolutely sure of its existence, but still they are waiting for some kind of sign that will confirm this,” writes Chris Carter, American producer and creator of The X-Files.
As Carter emphasizes, “The universe is simply too big for us to be alone in it.” Meanwhile, in the public domain not so long ago appeared, perhaps the first evidence that people have finally met with aliens, in the form of videos shot by US Navy pilots with “Unidentified Air Phenomena” – this is how it is now customary to call UFOs in America.
And last Friday, a government-sponsored study of the collected materials on unknown objects was presented in the US Congress.
“We were promised answers, as always,” he writes.
“As much as I would like to, I myself have never seen a UFO or aliens,” admits Carter. But thanks to The X-Files, I met quite a few people who claimed to have seen it all. I’ve seen blurry footage of gray aliens walking around in someone’s backyard.
” “I personally know an award-winning filmmaker who once told me with a straight face that he saw a UFO when he was in college.
And Annie Jacobsen, author of the wonderful book Area 51, introduced me to a man who worked at this secret facility for many years and saw how strange planes flew into and out of the Air Force base located there. In general, for ten years I became a real magnet for these things, “said Carter.
The plot of “The X-Files” was built on a conspiracy theory, according to which the government hides the existence of extraterrestrial life from citizens, the producer continues.
“Do I think the government is lying to us? Well, of course – I’m from the generation of the Watergate scandal,” says Carter. “Do I believe in conspiracy theories? Of course.
For example, I am convinced that someone is attacking CIA agents and White House employees with microwave radiation (it is also called “Havana syndrome”), although our government denies this.
But can this new report about UFOs – or any other government officials report – give us clear answers to all our questions? That’s it, I’m skeptical as always.”
As Carter recalls, in 1996 Harvard University psychiatrist John Mack invited him to watch a hypnosis session of a woman who claimed to have been abducted by aliens.
“In 1996, I was invited to the clinic of Harvard University psychiatrist John Mack to witness the regressive hypnosis of a self-proclaimed alien abductee woman. I first met Dr. Mack, who had studied and eventually believed in alien abduction, when he came to the Fox studio, to discuss my work.
“So I knew something about what I was about to see. I walked doubtfully, unprepared for the drama, as a woman sat next to me in tears and horrified by the alien encounter she described on a beach in Mexico. The experience was powerful and a little unsettling.”
A few years later, Carter happened to attend a conference held in the California city of San Mateo and dedicated to some secret program of the US government – the participants of the event believed that within the framework of this program, the US authorities, among other things, use technologies “extracted” from captured UFOs to creation of space weapons.
“On the surface, these people looked like quite respectable and well-deserved professionals – there were even former officers and lawyers among them, but at the same time, some of them also believe that the armed forces have secret bases on the far side of the moon, where they secretly hold meetings with reptilians,” the producer writes.
According to Carter, humanity has entered an era of “uncertainty” where the truth is sometimes unattainable – and this gives rise to a whole range of conspiracy theories, “from a documentary about the coronavirus called “Pandemic” to the idea that we all live in black hole created by the Large Hadron Collider after the discovery of the Higgs boson.”
“The truth is somewhere nearby”, “Don’t trust anyone”, “Denial everything” – the provocative signature phrases of The X-Files, but this was in the nineties, when we still lived in a relatively familiar reality. Now these slogans have become the harsh reality of life,” he writes.
Videos taken by pilots were not the only reason why UFOs were again in the spotlight – this was also facilitated by The New York Times, which in 2017 published a sensational article about a secret US Department of Defense program to find real information about “saucers”.
According to the producer, all this together resulted in a new government report. However, according to the author, the report turned out to be a failure – after all, it does not contain specific conclusions about where the unidentified flying objects came from and whether they are of an extraterrestrial nature, and the fact that parts of the document were classified will only lead to the emergence of new conspiracy theories .
“It’s all very X-Files style. But it’s also an opportunity to ask some important questions,” Carter said.
How did the US Department of Defense manage to keep a budgeted project secret for ten years, the main sponsor of which in 2007 was Senator Harry Reid?
Why was Mr. Reed rejected when he tried to achieve an even greater level of secrecy and asked for physical evidence Why did an initiative to answer questions about intelligent aliens coming to us from outer space finally get $22 million (the equivalent of three episodes of Netflix’s Stranger Things)?” Carter asks.
“Stubborn skeptics” have previously claimed that the UFOs in the Navy-provided video are an “optical illusion” – despite the fact that pilots who saw these objects described them in detail, reporting that they had no wings, no exhaust gases, and that they performed impossible maneuvers at hypersonic speeds.
As he recalls, such disbelief – both scientifically based and not – has existed since the forties, when the American pilot Kenneth Arnold saw nine “flying saucers” over Mount Rainier.
But skeptics ask at least one reasonable question: why has not a single former or current official appeared in all these years who is ready to show all the cards even on his deathbed? (To be fair, I want to make a note,
“Could it be that the government, while claiming they don’t know what to think about these phenomena, is actually telling us the truth? Or is the truth at a level even further than top secret?” Carter asks.
Barack Obama, who once made sarcastic jokes about UFOs on television, now admits that unidentified objects do appear in the sky, and even Donald Trump, at whose behest the latest report began, does not deny it.
“I think that, in all likelihood, this report will come and go, and with it all the UFO talk, until there is definitive evidence.”
A planet that can’t come together on climate change or a global pandemic might not pay much attention even if debris or an alien corpse is found. Only one intercultural war between earthlings and aliens can immediately attract the attention of the townsfolk.
“But what if we had direct contact? With real alien beings from an exoplanet who traveled light years to find us? Who have answers to every question we’ve ever asked?
“The result would undoubtedly change course of human development. But will it change us?
“I want to believe”.
