the truth is out there
an important life skill is truth seeking. many times and for many reasons we are not told the truth. sometimes it is benign. the truth is withheld to avoid hurting an individual’s feelings. sometimes, the withholding of the truth has sinister motives. a lot of times, the truth is manipulated for pecuniary gain. thus, the exercise of “following the money” will often lead to the truth.
first, i will reveal my inclination. alien life forms existing would be awesome.
a theory on alien life forms visiting earth looks at humanity’s attempts to reaching out to planets and different universes. it asks, “wouldn’t aliens do the same thing to visit our planet?” thus, we would expect aliens to exploring our planet via probes, satellites and rovers. further, due to issue of earth being hospitable to their life forms, it would be anticipated that robotic technology be employed before any attempt of a formal visit.
with all that being said, let us look in into the us military report on ufos.
in the past, the military and politicians have always danced on the ufo topic. presidential candidates have been asked about releasing government ufo files. they have always been teased but not produced up until now.
perhaps the military is crises mode. they feel that their funding will be threatened. the afghanistan withdrawal is closing off a theatre. with limited conflict in the horizon, the military needs to give politicians and the public new reasons to increase the military budget. this also dovetails with new space force branch of the military. what better branch of the military to address this issue? thus, there are many reasons to see that the only green in ufos is the military funding dollars,
the executive summary from the ufo report is quite telling:
“safety concerns primarily center on aviators contending with an increasingly cluttered air
domain. uap [unidentified airborne phenomena] would also represent a national security challenge if they are foreign adversary collection platforms or provide evidence a potential adversary has developed either a breakthrough or disruptive technology.” note: costly military planes are at risk of being damaged. thus, investing money to prevent damage such accidents is a legitimate expense. further, the report suggests a technology race concerning flying technology that we need to compete with. thus, there is the suggestion the money is needed to catch up.
the summary further reports that ” consistent consolidation of reports from across the federal government, standardized reporting, increased collection and analysis, and a streamlined process for screening all such reports against a broad range of relevant usg data will allow for a more sophisticated analysis of uap that is likely to deepen our understanding. some of these steps are resource-intensive and would require additional investment.” [emphasis added] note: the report’s purpose is revealed as to the need for more funding.
thus, as we conclude this exercise in seeking the truth, we find that money is the motivation.
on the other hand…
perhaps, this is not the whole story. the report addressed “unidentified” aerial phenomena. what about “identified aerial phenomena of an alien origin?” is the truth still out there?

The limited amount of high-quality reporting on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP)
hampers our ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAP. The
Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) considered a range of information on UAP
described in U.S. military and IC (Intelligence Community) reporting, but because the reporting
lacked sufficient specificity, ultimately recognized that a unique, tailored reporting process was
required to provide sufficient data for analysis of UAP events.
• As a result, the UAPTF concentrated its review on reports that occurred between
2004 and 2021, the majority of which are a result of this new tailored process to
better capture UAP events through formalized reporting.
• Most of the UAP reported probably do represent physical objects given that a
majority of UAP were registered across multiple sensors, to include radar, infrared,
electro-optical, weapon seekers, and visual observation.
In a limited number of incidents, UAP reportedly appeared to exhibit unusual flight
characteristics. These observations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or
observer misperception and require additional rigorous analysis.
There are probably multiple types of UAP requiring different explanations based on the
range of appearances and behaviors described in the available reporting. Our analysis of
the data supports the construct that if and when individual UAP incidents are resolved they will
fall into one of five potential explanatory categories: airborne clutter, natural atmospheric
phenomena, USG or U.S. industry developmental programs, foreign adversary systems, and a
catchall “other” bin.
UAP clearly pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to U.S. national security.
Safety concerns primarily center on aviators contending with an increasingly cluttered air
domain. UAP would also represent a national security challenge if they are foreign adversary
collection platforms or provide evidence a potential adversary has developed either a
breakthrough or disruptive technology.
Consistent consolidation of reports from across the federal government, standardized
reporting, increased collection and analysis, and a streamlined process for screening all
such reports against a broad range of relevant USG data will allow for a more
sophisticated analysis of UAP that is likely to deepen our understanding. Some of these
steps are resource-intensive and would require additional investment.
