UFO disclosure is about an evolution of consciousness, not little green men.
Ancient artifacts from all over the world show humanoid figures wearing what appear to be astronaut space suits.
Sacred texts like the Bible or Vedas reference “angels,” “gods,” “creators” and other supernatural beings that came from the sky.
Massive pyramids in Egypt, Mexico, Europe, South America, China and Japan are built along the same belt between 20° and 32° north latitude, all engineered and executed with remarkable precision and advanced knowledge of geometry, mathematics and astronomy. The same belt connects the Bermuda Triangle, the Dragon's Triangle and Mexico's Zone of Silence.
The three pyramids of Giza are also the mirror image of the three stars on Orion's Belt.
Indigenous tribes like the Native American Hopi or the Dogon people of Africa point to the sky as the place of their origin—not metaphorical or spiritual origin, but as an exact location of the “parent” beings that brought the entire humanity into existence. These beings are believed to have come to Earth thousands of years ago and seeded this planet with life. They are also expected to return soon.
Transparency Through Disclosure—or Not
These and other curious facts constitute if not hard evidence, at least a reason to wonder about the nature of the UFO phenomenon. And most people do wonder. As a result, over 20 countries disclosed their UFO files, moving towards greater transparency.
The United States, on the other hand, has taken the position of deliberate silence. Some files were disclosed in 2011 as a nod to the Freedom of Information Act, but the most fundamental facts about the UFOs are still being denied.
Why? The most cited reason is: The American people are not ready, a.k.a. "the mass panic scenario."
The Mass Panic Scenario
Granted, Americans are an unpredictable bunch. We're stressed out, overworked, overspent, overmedicated, mentally unstable and armed to the teeth.
We're still battling poverty, racism and illiteracy. We still engage in needless wars and debate whether healthcare is a universal right, or whether climate change is real. We put poisons in our food, water and air, and we have half of our population in prisons. Let's face it: We're not exactly ahead of the curve.
But does it mean we can't handle the fact that we're not alone in the universe? After all, nearly 50 percent of Americans believe UFOs could be a sign of extraterrestrial visitation.1
So lets examine "the mass panic scenario" closely.
What Would Your Reaction Be?
Imagine that tomorrow the government makes a global announcement of the UFO presence, and just like that the world changes in an instant. Everything we know and believe is called into question, and maybe some people aren't able to cope with the new reality. Even so, does it mean that all of society will collapse?
Rather than think in hypothetical terms, ask yourself: What will my reaction be? Will I change my worldview or will I deny it in the face of fact? Will I panic or will I be able to go on with my day without losing my mind? Will I even feel excited? Rejoiced? Hopeful? Vindicated?
You know the answers. Most people have if not a conviction, at least a sneaking suspicion that there is more to the story than water balloons or secret military tests.
So where does the idea that the whole society will be shocked beyond recovery come from?
Alien Invasion That Never Happened
In 1938 Orson Welles' "Invasion from Mars" radio program caused an immediate panic among the listeners, and the convenient consensus was formed that the American people can’t handle the truth about the UFOs.
It's still used as a standard hypothesis for public reaction to the UFO disclosure even though it contains an obvious cognitive distortion: The radio program was about an alien invasion, which would understandably be terrifying.
If done correctly, the UFO files disclosure will not cause mass panic. Mass turbulence perhaps, but the potential long-term benefits far outweigh the initial shock.
Besides, we are so much more accustomed to the idea of extraterrestrial life now than 70 years ago. News of NASA finding water and elemental life on Mars aren't shocking anyone, and soon there will be other extraterrestrial announcements of this kind. As the former Governor of New Mexico Bill Richardson wrote,
"It would help everyone if the U.S. government disclosed everything it knows. The American people can handle the truth no matter how bizarre or mundane, and contrary to what you see in the movies."
The Evolution of Consciousness
It may not be always evident but human civilization is evolving.
- We're becoming more tolerant and willing to accept differences rather than denounce them.
- We're becoming more spiritual without the need to belong to a particular religious tradition.
- We're becoming more compassionate to other species inhabiting this Earth.
These evolving attitudes are being recognized, once again, as essential principles that sustain and enrich life in the long run. Shouldn’t they also apply to the issue of ET reality?
They should, but there is a disturbing trend in our society: whenever there is a possibility to make a change to the status quo, it's eradicated with an argument that the American people can't handle it. Decriminalizing drugs? It's too progressive. Alternative energy? Our infrastructure can’t handle that. A female president? We’re not there yet. Banning animal testing, GMOs, oil drilling, dumping chemical waste into the water supply? Not in our lifetime.
The People Deserve More Credit
Aren't you sick of hearing this?
Aren't you fed up with being infantilized and patronized? Aren't you outraged that your voice is always drowned out for the sake of illusory peace and order in the anticipation of a make-believe mass panic?
The American people should be given more credit, as the national surveys consistently confirm.
The polls show that about 50 percent of Americans believe that intelligent life exists, about 25 percent believe in aliens visiting earth, and the majority (about 80 percent) believes that the government is concealing information about the UFOs from the public.
In addition, a number of surveys that targeted religious groups attempted to determine whether people would lose their faith. The findings demonstrated that not only did religious people believe they’d keep their faith, they even said that the discovery of extraterrestrial life “would confirm God’s glory as the creator of the universe.”
After the Disclosure
UFO disclosure can start a whole new chapter in human history.
Learning about our place in the Universe, possibly our origins and our true potential will end the primitive out-of-control human civilization as we know it.
Imagine what we could be if our lives were not run by the financial institutions we've created. Imagine free energy for everyone – something that advanced intergalactic races have surely accomplished. Or being able to cure “incurable” diseases like cancer or AIDS. Imagine, say, 50 years without wars, poverty, genocide...
What if, instead of trying to survive the best we can, people were able to realize their full potential as species?
This is what a relationship with a cosmic community can give us: a new era of peace and prosperity, the world without incurable diseases, the air without pollution, the food without chemicals, the freedom to evolve spiritually, and true brotherhood of all races and creeds, because after all, we are ONE human race. Whatever the appearances, we still have a lot more commonalities than differences. And whatever the challenges, we will not be alone.
Are We Ready?

I do not believe in secrecy. I can understand why we need it for the military but it has to stop there. Any technology that effects our lives should not be kept secret even if it is used by the military, Our scientists and inverters need access to every new piece of knowledge out there to study and improve on and without it there is only one direction we can go and thats down.
Marcella on December 30, 2018:
I saw a triangle object in 1981 i held it in for 25 years i finally saw a sight called MUFON i contacted them after talking to them for over a hour i feel better. Same object i saw so did hundereds of other people called it in. They questioned me i gave what it looked liked no sound and about lights. It was huge. If people want to think im crazy im fine with it i know what i saw. Just wish goverment would tell truth about them.
Bill.firstname.lastname@example.org on August 28, 2018:
My mom, older brother and myself, (beit only partially seeing it myself) all believe weve been visited wether or not they did or did not leave. Our government is in need of getting some maturity and accept that we will not all freak out...no need to and wont accomplish anything. If they are here, well...they are here and some of us need to see positive coming out it. Bill
Lana Adler (author) from California on March 03, 2018:
I agree with you, Paul. Disclosure doesn't contradict anyone's religion. In fact, it will most likely create a massive spiritual shift. Thanks for reading!
Paul Clark on March 03, 2018:
There will always be people that cannot accept a situation no matter what the topic. The majority of the population is open to the potential that it is possible. The majority outweighs the few. It is my personal belief that acknowledging the potential that we are not alone does not undermine my Christian principals. We are taught that we are created in God's image. The bible does not indicate that his image is static or unchanging. God represented himself as a burning bush to Moses. This does not represent a humanoid shape so why would an alien presents change that concept?
David bushey on December 20, 2017:
I have witnessed what I believe to be a unidentified object over northern Ontario Canada that moved like no other craft we have on this planet . I know we are ready to accept disclosure.

In a court of law, a preponderance of evidence is all that's required to decide for a jury find for-or-against plaintiff-or-defendant. Likewise for criminal convictions, overwhelming circumstantial evidence is all that's required for lack of physical evidence. Why is that same standard not being applied (in mainstream), to UFO / ET evidence? Answer: Powerful groups with large sums of money (skin in the game), want ONLY certain "corporations" to know the truth. Until there is a breakthrough into that gov't/corp illegal superpac ... nothing will move forward for the sake of humanity or the truth.
poltava on June 18, 2016:
I would really like to know what it would take for people to accept the truth - if the truth was that aliens never visited Earth...?
NO hard uncontroversal evidence exists, and as the article says, many countries including UK have opened up their archives and yet no hard proof has come out.
I have followed UFO / Space / Physics for over 50 years and I am NOT convinced that we ever have been visited, I would be willing to change my mind but not by tall tales - hard proof is needed.
All scientists and professionals I know would be thrilled if there was alien life out there, think of poor Seth Shostak at SETI who has spent 25 years looking for them...without a single result.
It cannot all be a grand conspiracy involving all the worlds scientists....
And I still think FTL travel is impossible which makes visitations (at least in small numbers) pretty much impossible.
And any race that COULD manipulate space-time to achieve FTL could not be 'silenced' by a couple of US military men or Maj-12 individuals (do you think that if we landed on an uninhabited island we would allow some of the 'important' ants on the island hide us for 50 years...... ????!!).
Lana Adler (author) from California on June 07, 2016:
Thank you Tony! I have not seen it yet, but it's definitely on my list now. Thanks for the tip!
TonyW on June 01, 2016:
Has any of you guys seen Cosmic Disclosure on GaiamTV? What do you think about it? Great read by the way, I'm hoping for a disclosure too since I fully believe in the existence of intelligence out there.
Lana Adler (author) from California on January 07, 2016:
I have doubts about Hillary, too. But one way or another, it's going to happen. Keep the faith, Laura!
Laura on January 07, 2016:
Well it's now 2016 and we're still not anywhere near disclosure other than Hillary Clinton saying she does think aliens may have visited earth and that she will try get to the bottom of ufos and Area 51 if she becomes president but I highly doubt it! I completely believe in ufos and aliens but I can't see the government disclosing it why would they? For us? Nope!! I would love disclosure it would change our way of life for the better it would stop wars we could literally reach for the stars maybe one day but not in our lifetime!
Storm on December 18, 2015:
We will never be told people while there is a government/s I'm sorry to say. While there is a money program which we are slaves to it .truth is people wether you want to believe it or not they are already here working hand in hand with global goverments,where do you think this fast advanced technology has come from in the last 30-40 years, Wake up people.
Lana Adler (author) from California on June 26, 2014:
thank you for reading and commenting. I am sorry you felt that other nations are underrepresented in this article. I specifically focused on American people not out of sense of superiority, but because I think it's the American government that stalls the disclosure the most. I believe that other nations may be more open to the disclosure efforts, and/or have disclosed some information already, so there is no ill intent behind me addressing the American people and not, say, the Zambian people or the Australian people.
Sall on June 25, 2014:
I am disappointed that the author only refers to the "American" people... You do realise you(Americans) are not alone even on your own planet right? Believe it or not there is intelligent, human life on other parts of the earth that aren't extra terrestrial.
Lana Adler (author) from California on March 16, 2014:
Thank you for reading :-)
SIRIUS on March 14, 2014:
Lana Adler (author) from California on November 15, 2013:
There are thousands and thousands of people including scientists, pilots, military officers, doctors etc. who can testify to the UFO phenomena. I think some time fairly soon we're going to reach the tipping point and the world will never be the same again. Thank you for reading!
Al V. on November 12, 2013:
We who have seen UFOs or obducted people know the truth the US cant keep it a secrete they come and go every time they cant hide it I witnessed a UFO orange orb shape at night time the thing moved very strange in position and shot off to its right it dissapered in a second and I know it wasnt a star or I plane a commet I know this thing was very diffetent from what I seen in the sky, cant wait until the truth is revieled finally people can believe me that they are real:D
Lana Adler (author) from California on August 23, 2013:
Isn't that what "The Disclosure Project" was all about? There is no shortage of scientists, pilots, military men testifying, speaking out...We need a whistle blower releasing hundreds of thousands documents at once...We need something BIG
Marc Hubs from United Kingdom on August 23, 2013:
After the recent Citizens Hearing on Disclosure there are plans to gather a panel of the most reputable scientists, doctors, technicians, engineers, military officers, etc in the world which will be so large that their status will simply over-ride government on this issue and they will attempt to bring the truth out starting through theological means.
Lana Adler (author) from California on August 23, 2013:
I believe there's more than enough proof, Mbuggieh. But I've become very skeptical about the possibility of government-initiated Disclosure. They simply don't care about what we want: we can protest, demand, petition all we want. I think disclosure can only happen in one of two ways: either through a whistle-blower from within the government - like what Bradley Manning did, or through a highly visible mass contact no one can deny.
I love "AFTER DISCLOSURE". In fact, I reference it in the "P.S." section of my article. I've also seen Richard Dolan at the last UFO conference in Joshua Tree, he's a very engaging speaker. Thank you for reading and commenting.
mbuggieh on August 22, 2013:
While I doubt that in 2013 there is anything to disclose, I do believe that someday---maybe, there will be something to disclose; there will be definitive evidence and proof---tangible and physical proof, of some contact.
That said, the book AFTER DISCLOSURE (by Dolan and Zabel) is an interesting read and has an interesting accompanying website:
Lana Adler (author) from California on July 18, 2013:
heidi, I agree, we are not alone in any sense! And I do hope that this discovery happens sooner than later, it's been concealed long enough...Thank you for reading
Lana Adler (author) from California on July 18, 2013:
Thank you kitty...I do believe in everything I write and it is so amazing to be able to share it and learn that there are people like me out there who have awakened to the same reality. It gives me so much hope and optimism!!!
Heidi Thorne from Chicago Area on July 18, 2013:
I am absolutely convinced we are not alone. The almost incalculable number of stars and galaxies in our universe (and maybe parallel universes?) make it statistically probable. And with space research findings of organic materials in comets and other space objects, in my mind it's more than just probable. Confirmation of alien visitation or alien life will be the greatest discovery in our short cosmic history. Thanks for the great discussion!
Kitty Fields from Summerland on July 18, 2013:
kalinin - I have to say I believe you are my newest favorite hubber. Wow. Everything stated in this hub sums up my beliefs...the things that I've awakened to in reference to the government trying to control us, the absolute life outside of our world and in the universe and multiverse...and the fact that we are not originally from this planet...wonderful wonderful wonderful hub. Blessings to you for speaking the truth.
Lana Adler (author) from California on April 12, 2013:
Well...let's hope he's right! At times I feel very impatient but then I remember... I have no agenda for after disclosure. Let it all happen when the time is right ;-)
Marc Hubs from United Kingdom on April 11, 2013:
I can't see it happening any time soon either. Sergeant FC Cliff Stone claims that the world is to be told in 2016 that VG1991 is actually an artificial extraterrestrial artifact... I have my doubts.
Lana Adler (author) from California on April 10, 2013:
Bashar put the timing between 2025 and 2035, but that might have changed since then. I still don't see it happening now, or in a few years, but SOON, very soon. Fingers crossed :-)
Marc Hubs from United Kingdom on April 09, 2013:
Indeed, it looks like they're really giving the disclosure issue a gigantic push in the right direction this year (hopefully).
Lana Adler (author) from California on April 08, 2013:
Thank you Sparkster! I didn't know that. Seems like all these events are lining up...
Marc Hubs from United Kingdom on April 07, 2013:
Great hub with some interesting viewpoints, I enjoyed reading it. In addition to Sirius, one week later there is a 5-day citizen's hearing on disclosure at the NPC in Washington, DC in front of 5 former members of congress.
