The UFO Phenomenon

Secret Pentagon research projects revealed

A newly declassified list of top secret US government projects reads like something out of an X-Files episode.
Recently it emerged that between 2007 and 2012 the Pentagon had been involved in a secretive $22M UFO program known as the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program.

While the news came as quite a surprise to some, it turns out that the program had also involved research in to a wide variety of 'out there' technologies and concepts.

Now a newly declassified document released through the Freedom of Information Act has revealed what the United States Defence Intelligence Agency had actually been working on.
Some of the 38 projects listed include:
  • Pulsed High-Power Microwave Technology
  • Invisibility Cloaking
  • Traversable Wormholes, Stargates and Negative Energy
  • High-Frequency Gravitational Wave Communications
  • Antigravity for Aerospace Applications
  • Warp Drive, Dark Energy and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions
  • State of the Art and Evolution of High-Energy Laser Weapons
The document sadly doesn't offer any details, meaning that we can only speculate on what some of these might have actually entailed and what type of research went in to them.

"I think anyone who looks at these titles will scratch their heads and wonder what on earth the Defence Intelligence Agency was thinking," said Steven Aftergood, director of the Federation of American Scientists' Project on Government Secrecy.

"These are the kinds of topics you pursue when you have more money than you know what to do with."

The full document can be viewed - here.

Eye witness account is the best. What can be better than first hand experience? Otherwise someone will always be there to say, "I didn't see it, so I don't believe it"... happens every day. There are always people who refuse to believe unless a DIRECT experience happened.  So explain to me what TRUTH is to them then?...;. you can't. I just did.

Eyewitnesses are notoriously bad. People are released from jail all of the time that spent decades in jail due to eyewitnesses. How often are there people in the news telling completely different stories and they were all eyewitnesses? Eyewitnesses are terrible. They get things wrong. Their memories change. What is better? Actual evidence is better. Things that can be studied and checked after the fact are better. Does it have to happen to someone for it to exist? No.

 I don't really accept the connection between transmitting one dot of sound as evidence that tv would one day become reality  but lets say i do, and then take it back a notch. In 1800 who would have predicted television ?  lol of course it seems to us NOW that gravity cannot be blocked or reversed  That is simply a lack of of our present technology and theoretical sciences.  To get to a point where we  can, will take research development and advancement of both science and technology.   But this will only happen if we believe it can be done. The EFFECTS of gravity can be neutralised ... [More]

I suppose you don't understand the incremental nature of the processes involved. Going back in time to 1800 is rather meaningless isn't it unless you want to go back hundreds more years and consider stories of people looking at mirrors or pools of water and seeing remote events. You appear to make the mistake of thinking that physics changes from place to place or time to time. I know there are many people that think there is an alien physics and a human physics and that simply is an idea due to lack of understanding of basic concepts. All of the theoretical understanding of gravity shows that... [More]

  Actual evidence STILL needs to be seen by someone to be VALIDATED. So regardless... EYEWITNESS is inevitable in the process bro... simple. I agree memories are hard to believe in some people and some cases... but still doesn't change the fact that inorder for something to be validated it has to be observed by someone to NOTE it. That's why it's called observe.   Seriously... I don't think you've read enough into all SSP programs out there and ALL of what the higher ups have been disclosing.

And before you say they HAVE to be credible to be worthy, I'll agree. Hence ALL the credible people that have come forward. Don't be last to catch on to what is REALLY going on in the world. Who the hell wants to wake up last to what's happening? F-that. I want to know everything...

Great. Now you are moving the goal posts. Someone who examines evidence is not an eyewitness. An eyewitness is someone that has first hand knowledge of the event. Eyewitness is not someone that looks through the potential evidence at a later time. These people have second hand or third hand knowledge. The eyewitness is the one seeing what happened and they are notoriously bad at getting it correct. It is not "memories are hard to believe in some people". It is people in general are bad at reporting what they saw.   Seriously?  Now you want to pretend that there is an unknown you want to pull... [More]

Don't depend on hilarious joke sites like divine cosmos for any info. So who do you think is credible?

Most cosmologists and phyicists accept the existence of black holes.  Nobody has ever seen one, however. We've merely measured their effects.  So there are no direct witnesses. Therefore they can't exist ?

I have a fossil of a trilobite  (which existed approximately 520 million years ago to 250 million years ago). Does that mean I'm an eyewitness to the Paleozoic Era? If I go to Ford's Theater in Washington DC, and stand where Abraham Lincoln was shot, does that mean I'm an eyewitness to the assassination? If ever there was a time to use Inigo Montoya's line about meaning, this is it.
