from why ufo’s matter:

I have frequently been asked why a person of my background—a former Chief of the Defense Staff, a former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee—why I think there is a cover-up (of) the facts about UFOs. I believe governments fear that if they did disclose those facts, people would panic. I don’t believe that at all. There is a serious possibility that we are being visited by people from outer space. It behooves us to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want.”   – Admiral Lord Hill-Norton, chief of British defence forces

This essay and the embedded links concern the most profound and vitally important subject in the history of humankind.  I certainly did not think so 11 months ago. 2013 has been my year for going from UFO sceptic to believer. I was astounded at the amount of evidence from credible people and highly intelligent and thorough researchers. This subject is simply not the province of just a mob of “tin foil hat” wearers! You may well still think that – but I request you to read on with an open mind – and see what conclusion you arrive at.

A mainstream scientific finding in November 2013, widely reported in the mainstream media, does aid in bringing a more open mind to this topic – thanks to the Kepler space telescope it is now estimated there are 20 billion earth-like planets within the liquid water habitable zones around stars in our Milky Way galaxy. There are an estimated 100 billion to 500 billion galaxies in the universe. That means there are around 6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 earth-like planets in the universe. We can no longer assume Earth to be at all unique!

What also becomes apparent as you examine the evidence is not just that some UFOs can only be explained as real visitations by extra-terrestrial (ET) civilizations, but that the topic is central to the meaning of everything concerning the human race and our future. This is one reason why it has been kept so top secret and made into a subject of taboo and ridicule.

In particular a critical reason why the topic is kept so secret would seem to be to do with the energy and propulsion that UFOs would have to use to get here. The energy for Star Trek style interstellar travel would be far in advance of fossil fuels and nuclear fission power. A polluted, heating, deforested, but so far still beautiful planet could urgently do with a new clean cheap energy source. That may sound too good to be true, but examine the evidence and judge for yourself.

I am a medical practitioner in Australia. In early January 2013 I had an accident (but no head injury!) leading to several weeks off work. During that time I made progress on my academic writings. But concentration was limited by painful injuries and so I passed the time surfing the internet on other interests such as the nature of consciousness.  In doing this I came across the ideas of a Dr Steven Greer and something called the “Disclosure Project”.  My initial reaction was to click past, but the credentials of the witnesses (e.g. the quote above) caught my eye and I started reading, watching and listening – and well… now I find myself writing on this topic.

I cannot vouch for everything presented here, but what now seems more bizarre to me than the topic of UFOs, is the cover-up and ridicule related to the topic, given the evidence and the world-changing implications. Initially I was just going to type a few notes at the suggestion of a brother-in-law who wanted a quick overview of the area, but seems I’ve written a short e-book…

If you’re struggling to go further – at least be entertained for a while by “Out of the Blue” – a professionally made documentary. Then, if your curiosity has been sufficiently aroused please continue with the joining the dots that I’ve tried in this “e-book” on this most intriguing, complex and crucial topic.

The “Disclosure Project”

The Disclosure Project is an organisation that gathers whistleblowers and witnesses – mostly former military personnel – who testify to the existence of UFO’s being in fact ET craft and encounters with alien beings and that there has been a long standing global cover-up of these facts by high levels of government intelligence agencies.  As becomes evident the witnesses (mostly older men in retirement and down to earth characters) do so at great personal risk to reputation if not more.  See for example:



Dr Greer is a physician in emergency medicine and was director at a young age of a hospital emergency dept. He is a very interesting chap for reasons I shall point out later.

One argument against an ET presence is that the governments couldn’t keep such secrets. Well the information now available on the internet is that they unofficially cannot – but officially they still try. Your willingness to believe the official account may be what is keeping you in the sceptical camp. But read on as to why this area has been maintained at “above top secret”, the issue is as much with human politics as with whatever the motive of the ET’s may be.

Another argument centres on the obvious question: “why don’t they just land on the White House lawn?” There are actually testimonies that there was a “take me to your leader” moment in the 1950s with President Eisenhower but the ETs have backed off from a primitive tribal violent species (us) and are now engaging humanity at a more grass-roots level.  Bizarre? Well read on… The evidence will surprise you.

Book receives mainstream acclaim

In 2010, experienced investigative journalist, Leslie Kean, published details of the most astounding and well-documented cases involving interviews with high-ranking officials. The book – “UFO’s: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record” has endorsements from mainstream academics. John Podesta, who was Clinton’s White House chief-of-staff, wrote the foreword. If you are going to get any book on this subject this is the place to start with:

The “Citizens’ Hearing on Disclosure”, Washington D.C.

In addition to the Disclosure Project, in April 2013 a “Citizens Hearing on Disclosure of an Extraterrestrial Presence Engaging the Human Race” convened at the National Press Club in Washington DC over 5 days. It was set up in the style of a Congressional Hearing with 6 former members of the US Congress presiding. Once again very credible witnesses came forth. The organising group was the Paradigm Research Group headed by Stephen Bassett a lobbyist on the issue in Washington.

See: http://www.citizenhearing.org/witnesses.html

A recent interview with Bassett shows the Citizens’ Hearing has garnered the kind of momentum to push for official disclosure of this issue:


Bassett notes the 6 former Congressmen/women went from sceptics to believers or at least convinced there is a monumental cover-up and are pushing the issue within their circles of influence.


The 6 congressmen/women wrote a letter to President Obama asking for de-classification of the medical records of two US airmen who testified to coming into physical contact with an ET craft (“The Rendleshem Forest incident” – see below).  Although much is classified in the US military, it is unprecedented for US military personnel to have their medical records classified. A movie, “Ending the Truth Embargo”, of the Citizens’ Hearing testimonies is going to every current member of the US Congress and to the United Nations accompanied by some well organised lobbying beginning in January 2014. Bassett says his group is working with Brazil and other Latin American countries to push for a UN hearing on the issue. Watch the 4 trailers for “Ending the Truth Embargo” here:


So you may start to hear something more mainstream in the next year.
