I’ve been reading several UFO-related books and one of them is quite compelling. A.D.: After Disclosure, by Richard M. Dolan and Bryce Zabel. It uses a what if premise and takes us through the first hour, day, month, and year after disclosure occurs. How will disclosure change governments? Religions? Cultures? You and me?
The authors speculate that the event which will trigger disclosure could be a mass sighting. But we’ve had those before – the Phoenix Lights (1997), the Hudson Valley sightings (1980s), Gulfport, Florida (late 80s, early 90s) Moscow (1990), Mexico City (1991), Belgium, Stephenville, Texas (2008) Norway (1980s). Some of these mass sightings had excellent video and photographs and received, as the authors note, at least some press coverage.
“In several of the American cases, there were behind-the-scenes pressures to prevent mass panic. Frequently, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was on-the-spot, charged with stonewalling pubic inquiries with absurd explanations that were intended to prevent further press inquiry.”
However, this is now 2013 and millions of people worldwide have Smart phones with high definition video and camera capabilities. As the authors point out, the steady growth of technology is “one great inexorable force, relentlessly pushing us all into the future, into the light of truth.”
But when you consider that the secrecy about UFOs and ETs has existed at least since Roswell in 1947, it may take more than thousands of high def videos and photos of UFOs for disclosure to reach a tipping point. Dolan and Zabel speculate about the existence of a group that is actually in charge of the UFO secrecy. They call this cabal the Breakaway Group. Thanks to worldwide assets, this group isn’t beholden to any political or military authorities. “…it’s likely that the Breakaway Group answers not so much to the president of the United States as it does to private, internationally based individuals and groups.”
Why would these secret-keepers, these UFO/ET power brokers, surrender their silence? They probably wouldn’t do it willingly, but circumstances may prompt them to do so.
There are sections in the book where the authors speculate about who these aliens are, what they want, how they think and it makes for fascinating reading. They also mention the possibility that perhaps these beings aren’t aliens at all but are inter-dimensional travelers or perhaps even time travelers – us from the future?
There’s a fascinating section in the book about how both news and entertainment will change after disclosure. In fact, one of the authors, Bryce Zabel, has created five prime time network series, and I wonder if he worked out a possible series in the writing of A.D. this book. “…imagine a new show called Above and Beyond. In this series, almost anything goes, but its stock in trade is an aerial point of view, seeing the world below from a POV of a flying saucer. This series would be a vehicle to take audiences into previously classified labs.”
Reality shows, newscasts, both print and digital newspapers will be scrambling for new programming. And late-night comedians will have a whole new spectrum of material for jokes. The authors also explore the impact on art, publishing, the economy, technology, medicine.
It’s a fascinating read.
The second book, Nigel Kerner’s Grey Aliens and the Harvesting of Souls, has a strange but not implausible premise: the Grays are bioengineered, don’t have souls, and are abducting humans to create hybrids that will have souls. In other words, their mission is, well, spiritual. Sort of. It parallels what one abductee said: “They don’t grok us.” They don’t understand our emotional attachments to each other, to pets, to anything.
Kerrner’s premise is couched in a dense, complex cosmology he has worked out about the nature of reality, the universe, and a supreme being. I started stumbling with this book when I read this line:
“If abortions are freely available and are carried out, then soon the natural balance of debt-engendered reincarnation will be upset; in time, no soul will be able to come through to the exact conditions required for a particular karma to be expedited.”
Huh? Really? Where’s free will in this picture? This idea felt intuitively wrong to me, so I wrote my friend Carol Bowman and asked her what she thought of that quote. Carol’s written two books on children’s past lives –Children’s Past Lives and Return from Heaven – and has an active past-life regression practice. I figured she could shed some light on this.
“It seems that some souls aren’t even that involved with the forming fetus in the early stages of pregnancy. And it seems that each soul coming in responds to the abortion differently. If you have a copy of Return From Heaven I have a chapter on that called U-turn in the Womb. Also, if the mother communicates with the soul of the unborn child and explains why she is aborting, the incoming soul can make other plans: come later or go somewhere else.
“The whole concept of “debt-engendered” reincarnation is old school, as far as I’m concerned. It sounds like the old punitive concept of reincarnation. Who is this guy?”
I didn’t finish Kerner’s book. But I’m off now to finished A.D.: After Disclosure.
