For some time, the CIA has been running secret research programs concerning UFO sightings and contact, psychic ability and expanded human potential, with an eye to marrying manipulated psychic ability to technology – especially alien-engineered technology.

These programs are highly compartmentalized with limited interaction among the units. Extensive genetic surveys have been done of people who have reported UFO sightings and contact. Reportedly, a genetic marker has been identified with empirical data that predicts a higher probability of certain individuals having these experiences – and having a more marked degree of psychic ability than most other persons.

This marker will be studied and exploited for ways to enhance the UFO/psychic proclivity in future generations. Apparently, the government has no shortage of experiencers willing to participate in the research. High-profile experiencers who seek a lot of media publicity are, for the most part, avoided; experiencers who are “below the radar” are preferred. Many potential subjects come from various public surveys of experiencers.

The US government continues to secretly research psychic applications, despite official announcements in the past that certain programs were terminated. For example, Stargate, the consolidation of various secret programs to investigate the use of psychic phenomena and skills in military and intelligence operations, was shut down and declassified in 1995, because “officially” the CIA found no useful applications, and some members of Congress were vocal about the government paying “psychics” and “witches” for dubious research.

The psychic research merely went deeper underground and then ramped up after the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks in 2001.

Some of the current research is being done at laboratories where MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is used while test subjects are engaged in remote viewing and other psychic tasks.

The roots of these psychic programs go back to at least World War I. There was a lull after that war until World War II. When the modern UFO era commenced in the mid-20th century, interest in psychic applications was extended into that field as well. Alien craft captured by the government revealed a marked lack of instrumentation. The craft had power sources, but no obvious way to control them. In some cases, panels with depressions for hand prints suggested a form of mental control exerted by physical contact with the craft.

Major aerospace companies were given secret contracts to investigate mental/psychic control of aircraft. In other research, military pilots were recruited for experiments. (While we haven’t yet achieved full mental control of aircraft, there are helmets, each unique to the physiology of a military pilot, that follow and respond to eye movements.)

While the government was studying alien technology back in those early UFO-era days, the public was being fed a much different story. In 1952, the US Air Force initiated Project Blue Book as its third official investigation of UFO activity. (The previous two were Project Sign in 1947 and Project Grudge in 1949.)

Project Blue Book examined sightings from 1947 to 1969. It ended in 1970 with the official conclusions that UFOs did not display technology beyond our own; they were not considered a national security threat; and there was no evidence that UFOs were of extraterrestrial origin.

All three conclusions were contradicted by the secret study of alien craft that had either crashed or been shot down and captured. Advanced technology – yes. Security threat – yes, if the visitors are hostile. Extraterrestrial origin – possibly, but more likely interdimensional; certainly not from “here.”

Despite official attempts to squelch the UFO phenomenon, UFO sightings and ET contact did not abate but increased. Debunking and disavowal did not work (though they are tactics still employed), so the next most effective tool was management of perceptions and information.

Since then, the public has been exposed to increasing media on ETs, slowly acclimatizing us to the idea that Earth has been visited/could be visited by hostile or benevolent (but mostly hostile) ET forces. ETs and UFOs have permeated pop culture in art, music and advertising as well as films and television. It’s no accident – it’s by design.

Apparently, the time has now come for the public to be let in on some of the bigger secrets. New disclosure drops have started, and more are coming (see UFO Underground #2).

The experience-psychic ability connection

The overlap between extraordinary experience and high innate psychic ability is well-known to many paranormal researchers. One follows the other. Experiences are not limited to UFOs but include other kinds of phenomena as well. The government, however, isn’t interested in ghosts or dogmen – just aliens and UFOs.

The ability of the mind to exert a physical force on material objects (psychokinesis) has been documented in parapsychology since at least the 1930s, and programming objects or devices with intention has been demonstrated scientifically as well, such as in the work of physicist William Tiller. Thus, it comes as no surprise that government intelligence is interested in applications of psychic mind power.

Genetic manipulation, especially covert, is another matter. Will we breed secret “super psychics” who will interface and work with aliens, control our own technology by thought – and perhaps even influence the thoughts of the public?

UFOs and aliens aside, global social media and the internet have raised the ante on mind control in general. How the masses respond to news and information is carefully studied, and for many purposes, including advertising and consumer choices as well as political power and intelligence.  For example, consider the current scandal over the now-defunct Cambridge Analytica Ltd., a British political consulting firm, and its use of the data of millions of Facebook users to target ads during political campaigns, including the U.S. presidential vote.

Mass united consciousness can affect physical reality in powerful ways. Individuals need to be increasingly vigilant about how their thoughts and emotions are affected by information.
