FBI files include numerous reports of mysterious flying objects seen in many parts of the country by competent observers, including Air Force pilots and instructors as well as FBI personnel. The incredible speed and maneuverability of the objects (impossible for earthcraft) indicate an origin beyond this planet. The reports also include observations of physical evidence on the ground, such as indentations as well as burned and radioactive areas where the object had apparently landed. A CIA memorandum from the Deputy Director (DDCI) to the Director of Central Intelligence (date obliterated) states:
“At this time, the reports of incidents convince us that there is something going on that must have immediate attention…. Sightings of unexplained objects at great altitudes and travelling at high speeds in the vicinity of major U.S. defense installations are of such nature that they are not attributable to natural phenomena or known types of aerial vehicles.”
There is no doubt that some UFOs are real. Airline and fighter pilots and even astronauts (Ed White, first American to walk in space, James McDivitt, James Lovell, Frank Borman, et al.) have seen them. Vallee says, “We have met too many truthful witnesses, we have seen too many cases of actual traces…unidentified flying objects do exist.” He returns to the element of mystique, however, adding, “They are astounding…have the ability to affect the perception of time and space and the consciousness of those who come close to them.”
That UFOs are “real,” however, does not necessarily mean “physical.” All of the evidence indicates that they are intruders from another dimension of reality. Vallee says:
“I speculate, although I cannot prove, that a non-human form of intelligence is involved…that manipulates space and time in ways we do not understand…the UFO phenomenon [is] far more complex, stimulating, awesome and ultimately important and mysterious than…[physical spacecraft].”
Something nonphysical is visiting us for unknown reasons. Arthur C. Clarke said, “One theory that can no longer be taken very seriously is that UFOs are interstellar spaceships.” According to Vallee, who knew leading ufologist J. Allen Hynek very well, the latter said:
“I have come to support less and less the idea that UFOs are ‘nuts and bolts’ spacecraft from other worlds…. To me, it seems ridiculous that super intelligence would travel great distances to do relatively stupid things like stop cars, collect soil samples, and frighten people….”
For the many reasons given above and the biblical ones which follow, we do not believe that any spacecraft crashed near Roswell or anywhere else or that any bodies were recovered. We do not doubt the sincerity of those “witnesses” who are convinced otherwise and we have no explanation for the confusion involved. However, there is no question that physical wreckage and physical bodies are not part of the UFO scene.
