Yes, we have contacts with aliens...

What then is my involvement? To be honest, I almost spent 25 years on field research and PSI-experiments myself. Most of it disappointing due to numerous misunderstandings about common, yet rare, natural phenomena. Matters concerning our perception, brain and consciousness. Many aspects of those still inconclusively answered by sciences. I collected an impressive reference library on the subject of PSI research and UFO's. All the important books, some of them of historical importance, are in my possession. I wrote countless articles about my own research and several popular, moderately skeptical books on UFOs between 1976 and 1996 (all in Dutch). Around 1978 I was invited to visit Washington DC to meet an important group of civil servants and scientists to discuss certain aspects of the UFO phenomenon and PSI. Aspects that particularly concerned public interest and the methodology to prevent negative social effects, or even some mild mass-hysteria when "the news" were to break. Well, here is that news:
This time Dr. Mitchell is rather pertinent in his statement on the issue of alien contacts. I know he is in favour of the so-called Roswell UFO Crash, regarding some UFO incident in New Mexico - USA, in July 1947. A UFO case still haunting the USAF, although it published a 'final' report on it in 1997, called "The Roswell Report - Case Closed". I know that Dr. Mitchell uses Roswell as an example and steppingstone to point to similar events outside the USA. He is concerned that alien knowledge could fall in the wrong hands. Maybe that is already the case, but that is my opinion. Nonetheless I was involved in some Roswell investigations (1)(2) that proved to me that a lot of mystification was going on, admitting that some might be orchestrated to divert attention from the real issue. The issue that Dr. Mitchell mentionned.
The last 12 years I have kept silent about my knowledge which to some extent corroborates the opinion of Dr. Edgar Mitchell (photo). Earlier I tried to avoid "negotiations" with public media about the question whether alien contacts existed and their consequences. For most people a too ridiculous theme to pay attention to, for others a nearly religious issue. Still a nice filler and 'summertime subject' to write about for junior-journalists. Perhaps inspiring some to call Dr. Mitchell again. Both (con or pro) viewpoints however always leading to the same hilarious question "did Christ also die for them, on other planets". That sort of discussions I preferred to avoid, notwithstanding the open mind of the Vatican on this intriguing question. The real issue is far more complicated and dangerous than that. This refers not only to controverses in sciences, which Mitchell's Institute does explain quite well, but also to military interests of all major players on our planet's theatres, like the USA, Russia, France, UK, Brazil and several other countries. Then: who obtains advanced alien knowledge can easily overwhelm this world with technology that appears like magic and have others submit to their rules... In that light we may follow the US military developments with greatest interest. Certainly also those from Russia.
Why would "friendly" alien visitors visit our planet and why all secrecy? Perhaps there are hostile aliens in our universe as well? Who knows. One can only speculate on that. Maybe they understand better than we do, that a surprise contact with you and me could turn our whole world upside down. Its social fabric would be ripped apart. There is a lot to add to this. But for now it certainly is daring from Dr. Mitchell to ring a warning bell. We better prepare for the unexpected...
