On June 25th, the Office of the Department of National Intelligence released a long awaited, unclassified report on the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon. Overall, it left us, the UAP community, underwhelmed and with no additional information to add to our tool box of understanding. On a positive note, however, it is a very large step in the right direction because the U.S. Government has officially acknowledged the UAP existence and the need to further and more deeply investigate these ever growing occurrences. One also needs to understand that this preliminary report was and indirect admission of a major failure in intelligence. In other words, this official release, in a way was a piece of “humble pie”. In addition, it is important to note we can be sure that there will be more to come in the future.
Unfortunately, for the UAP enthusiast, it leaves us where we were on June 24th. So the search for the ultimate truth continues. With that said, I decided to stop, reflect and take a look at this from the “80,000 foot view”. In my lifetime of 51 years, this is probably the best report I could have hoped for (outside of full disclosure, of course) because this topic is now mainstream and the tinfoil hat stigma is gone. People around the world are finally taking this seriously and its people who, prior to 2017, would have never given this a second thought.
So I would like to take the time to thank everyone in the UAP Community from Luis Elizondo, Tom DeLong, Christopher Mellon and the thousands of people who have worked relentlessly to perpetuate this discussion forward well into the mainstream. Take a look back at yourself and your own efforts and I think you may be surprised at the amount of influence you alone had regardless of how inconsequential you may have believed it was.
So now, I look forward. I foresee the continued efforts of all of us as well as even more input from those people and organizations that may not have joined the journey if it hadn’t been for everyone’s efforts. This brings me to what I feel is the most important part. This group of UAP colleagues who, as a collective, brought this to the mainstream of the world, will be engaging with people who would not have normally approached this subject. We are a very fortunate network who have an amazingly large group of people with profound experience and expertise in a vastly wide range of disciplines:
- Military & Defense
- Private Sector Industry
- Science & Technology
Regardless, if we truly want this topic to continue on the trajectory towards Disclosure, then we need to maintain and perpetuate a high level of respect, tolerance and of course, stoicism when it comes to engaging with each other and the others with newfound interest in the UAP phenomenon regardless of their stance or background.
sto·i·cism/ˈstōəˌsizəm, noun: stoicism; noun: Stoicism
- The endurance of pain or hardship without the display of feelings and without complaint.
- An ancient Greek school of philosophy founded at Athens by Zeno of Citium. The school taught that virtue, the highest good, is based on knowledge; the wise live in harmony with the divine Reason (also identified with Fate and Providence) that governs nature, and are indifferent to the vicissitudes of fortune and to pleasure and pain.
“Anyone who is able to anger you has control over you. Remember this today before you react to someone who is provoking you. Anger clouds our judgement, leading us to mistakes. If someone provokes you, let it pass. If it is still important to react then wait until your anger has passed and you will make a better choice.” -William Mulligan
“Failure, defeat, and challenges are just boxes that you must tick off on your journey. If you are not ticking these boxes then you are not moving forward. If so, in due time obstacles will stack around you; leaving you stuck. Tick the boxes now, don’t let these hold you back. They are there to teach you, not punish you.” -William Mulligan
“Thinking is difficult, that’s why most people judge” – Carl Jung
Again, thank you all. This has been a lifelong passion of mine. Honestly, it has been the single most important topic in my life outside of being a father. I look forward to the road ahead and furthering this discussion together, as it is without a doubt the most important topic for humanity.
Peace to all. And buckle up.
