5 Possible Downsides to the UFO Disclosure
I urge those who are doubtful: Read the books, read the lore, start to understand what has really been going on. Because there really is no doubt we are being visited.— NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell
Whether we learn the truth through the government or through a mass contact, UFO disclosure is going to happen eventually, and it may be sooner than you think.
As an adamant proponent of the disclosure, I impatiently await the revelation, but there is a grain of salt in my enthusiasm. Are there any downsides to the big "D"?
1. Cultural shock and disruption of the social order
Although most people have if not a conviction, at least a sneaking suspicion that there is more to the story than weather balloons or military tests, disclosing the extraterrestrial reality will still result in a great shock.
Some will have their most cherished beliefs shattered in a matter of seconds, others will feel frightened and even terrified in the most primal, overwhelming way.
The shock will be exacerbated by the realization of the UFO cover-up. People will have to come to terms with the fact that they've been lied to for 60+ years, if we consider the Roswell crash to be the triggering event that created the need for the cover-up.
Essential information that was meant for the entire human race was concealed for far too long. In all likelihood, there will be a public outcry against the government(s). The authorities will try to frame the disclosure in their favor, posing as the caretakers of humanity, but it will take a long time before people can trust them again.
2. ETs may be too different
“Beam me up, Scottie. There’s no intelligent life down here.” -- Captain Kirk of the Starship Enterprise
ETs may be too advanced or too different for us to understand, communicate with or relate to. Correspondingly, humans may be too different or too un-evolved for the extraterrestrials (assuming they are...um...extra-terrestrial).
Some scientists believe that we shouldn't be disclosing anything or advertizing our presence to other civilizations because if some advanced space-faring species learn of our existence, chances are, they'll only be interested in our resources.
Stephen Hawking warns that
"If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans."
Carl Jung wrote in 1954 that in the event of the disclosure humanity as a whole will end up
"in the precarious position of primitive communities today in conflict with the superior culture...the rudder would be removed from our grasp."
Extraterrestrial researcher Erich von Daniken explains the psychological aspect of the issue:
"We don't like extraterrestrials. We don't want extraterrestrials, we are afraid of them. It's a psychological problem - we are not ready to accept that we are not the greatest."
3. Aliens may be...not alien at all
According to one theory, the so-called aliens are evolved humans from the future, and they travel back in time to prevent the genetic extinction of the species.
Hypothetically, if that was the case, Disclosure would be both undesirable and unlikely, since the "aliens" are obviously not trying to make open contact with our civilization, and for a good reason.
Now before you start rolling your eyes, let me say this: our understanding of time is very primitive. We experience time as a linear sequence of events that perpetually goes on and on. But what if time is more like a fourth dimension weaved into a cause-and-effect tapestry? Or a Pandora's box containing all possible scenarios in all the multiverse that can be hacked?
Nobody knows what time is, nobody. Even the most reputable scientists of our time don't presume to understand it, nor do they discard the possibility of time travel.
Einstein was obsessed with it. Stephen Hawking said that it's entirely possible to go forward in time if you're traveling within a vessel that approaches the speed of light, or if you're near an object of enormous mass. (Technically, it's not time travel, it's living in a slower than Earth time zone, like in a spaceship traveling near a black hole.) Hawking did, however, conclude that travel back in time is impossible because of the time travel paradox.
But who's to say that scientists living hundreds or thousands of years from now won't master time travel? Consider the advances that happened in the last 100 years alone. Can we imagine the kind of science that would exist, say, mere five thousand years from now?
As far-fetched as it sounds, there is some subsidiary evidence to support this theory, namely, the Rendlesham Forest incident (a.k.a. 'Britain's Roswell') when Sgt. James Penniston telepathically received a binary code from contact with an unidentified craft. When the data was decoded many years later, it was found to contain, among other things, the words "EXPLORATION OF HUMANITY", “FOR PLANETARY ADVANCE”, and the date(?) 8100.
Another piece of the puzzle comes from a respected U.S. Navy Commander and scientist George W. Hoover, who was one of the top-clearance people in charge of investigating the Roswell debris (and bodies) after the notorious UFO crash of 1947. Shortly before his death Hoover stated that he believed the aliens were not extraterrestrial but "extratemporal" - as in, from another time. He also believed they were not alien but human, and "clearly from the future". He said they had extraordinary abilities to use their consciousness to manipulate time and matter, and that our government fears their abilities.
4. Access to advanced technology
It should be obvious to any evolved civilization that humans with advanced technology equals monkey with a grenade.
As a civilization, we are neurotic and violent. And we have a tendency to turn any new scientific discovery into a weapon.
Many UFO researchers contend that the wreckage after the Roswell UFO crash has been immediately appropriated by the US military, studied and reverse-engineered into the Stealth series of military aircraft. Other rapid advancements in modern warfare in the last 50 years have also been linked to leaked UFO technology (you can read more on the subject in Philip Corso’s book, "The Day After Roswell").
I'm not an expert on weapons, but in all probability any advanced alien technology will be used and abused by the military before (and if) it ever gets to the people.
"I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within." -- General Douglas MacArthur, 1955
"And a lie, Mr. Mulder, is most convincingly hidden between two truths." -- Deep Throat, The X-Files TV series
Perhaps, the biggest downside to the UFO files disclosure is disinformation.
If the government initiates the disclosure, chances are, it will be a partial disclosure at best. They will not tell the whole truth but selected bits and pieces.
Worse yet, some authors suggest that the UFO files disclosure will be just a preparation step for another war under false pretenses, this time of interplanetary proportions.
One staged attack - and people will get behind whatever military measures the government will find necessary. 9/11 certainly fit the bill for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan – wars that still carry on. And many reported "UFOs" are built (reverse-engineered) by the military.
Psychologically, people are already prepared for an "alien invasion". Look at the sci-fi movies and TV series released in the last 10-20 years - most of them deal with some kind of alien threat in the end-of-the-world scenario. Just to name a few:
"Independence Day" (1996), "The Arrival" (1996), "Signs" (2002), "War of the Worlds" (2005), "Transformers" (2007), "The Invasion" (2007), "Cloverfield" (2008), TV series "V" (2009-2011), "Skyline" (2010), "Cowboys & Aliens" (2011), "Battle: Los Angeles" (2011), "Darkest Hour" (2011), TV series "Falling Skies" (2011-2014), "Battleship" (2012), "The Avengers" (2012), "Prometheus" (2012), "Dark Skies" (2013), "Man Of Steel" (2013), "Oblivion" (2013), "Pacific Rim" (2013), "Edge of Tomorrow" (2014), "Outpost 37" (2014),"The 5th Wave" (2016), "Independence Day: Resurgence" (2016).
It's not as far-fetched as you think. We already have weapons in space.
"The next enemy with a capital "E" will be Extraterrestrial," warned Wernher von Braun, a German “father of rocket technology".
Von Braun correctly predicted every major US war in the last 70 years: the Cold War and the “Star Wars” program, the war on the rogue nations, the War on Terror, and now - weaponization of space.
Weapons in space are said to protect us from asteroids and comets, but according to von Braun's associate, Dr. Carol Rosin, the final step in gaining global control over the population is an alien threat from outer space.
It will be "an attempt to unite the world through militarism [...] using ET as the new cosmic scapegoat." (Dr. Steven Greer, "Cosmic Deception: Let The Citizen Beware", 2002).

UFO Disclosure Poll
What do you think would happen in the event of the UFO Disclosure?
What do you think?
It's clear to see that if Disclosure happens through government-sanctioned channels, it will not be full Disclosure; it will be a mixture of half-truths and outright lies designed to prevent the whole truth from coming out. At this point the Disclosure will be taken from the people and turned into another travesty of fear-mongering and mass enslavement.
That's why Disclosure has to come from another source. It has to either come gradually through raising of the collective human consciousness, or through those beings who wish to establish contact with the human race.
What do you think?
- Do you believe we're not alone in the universe?
- If so, are we being visited?
- Would you trust a government-sanctioned Disclosure?
- Do you think we should have weapons in space?
