The government’s traditional response to claims of alien life and UFOs has been one of denial. But now we are past this point, for a number of reasons. As the world’s greatest military powers continue to engage with airborne vehicles that are too fast and elusive to have been created and operated by humans, we seem to have entered a new reality—one in which advanced spacecraft, not of this world, are for the first time, being acknowledged.

While UFO visitations (now referred to as UAPs — Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) are fascinating and provocative in of themselves, it’s curious why their disclosure appears to be happening, and why sightings at strategically significant locations, including the Kremlin, Pentagon, naval armadas, and nuclear facilities are now being spoken about publicly, without the ridicule previously associated with the topic.

We are also left wondering why the government’s threat narrative about alien intentions persists, while more forward thinkers suggest we’re being called to a higher state of consciousness. 

Perhaps the most recent UAP sightings confirmed by the Pentagon are a cosmic wake-up call, prompting us as a global community to change our destructive practices before it’s too late. How much more can we—as a species and a beleaguered planet—continue to participate in war, poverty, inequality, environmental destruction, nuclear proliferation, and limited belief systems? 

Even the most mainstream news programs are now openly discussing the UFO-UAP phenomena, including the long-running 60 Minutes program on CBS. Meanwhile, former CIA Director, R. James Woolsey acknowledged; “I’m not as skeptical as I was a few years ago, to put it mildly, but something is going on that is surprising to a series of intelligent, experienced aircraft pilots.”
