We Need to Let Go of Roswell
by Stephen Mather-Lees
The Roswell affair is perhaps the best known UFO incident. Much has
been written about it and there is probably more evidence publicly
available on it than any other incident of its type. The government
denials and explanations are actually comical in their crudity and
arrogance, and it is understandable that almost anyone who looks at the
evidence will want to see a full disclosure and admission of guiltby
So, why would I advocate letting it go? (Along with the Betty and
Barney Hill affair, the great Ohio-Pennsylvania UFO chase, the Chicago
the Phoenix triangle, and so many others.) A few reasons.
* First, we are wasting our time. If we have
learned anything from the last few decades in every possible arena, it
is that officialdom will almost
never own up to any wrongdoing, no matter how obvious the
facts are, and especially if it is possible to claim a
“National Security Issue”.
* Second and more important, is that the energy
that goes into the push for disclosure distracts us from more
* Third, any disclosure that does take place will
inevitably be a long way from complete, and will still contain lots of
inconsistencies and gaps.
In fact on the couple of occasions when the Freedom of Information Act
was invoked to extract 50-year old information on UFO sightings and ET
contact, the hundreds of pages eventually released were almost
completely whited (or blacked) out. Why? You guessed it –
“National Security Reasons”.
OK, says you, I’ll bite, what should we be doing?
I say that we should take it as a given that not one but many races of
ETs have been visiting Earth for many tens if not hundreds of thousands
of years. The evidence is all around us if we care to look for it
– the Internet abounds with sites, there are numerous
conferences every year, and there are published books galore. After
even a fairly superficial look around, one rapidly comes to the
conclusion that the verdict is obvious.
Next, I say that we should be making every effort to establish our own
contacts and relationships with the ETs that are around here and now.
We need simply to sidestep the obfuscation, let go of the desire to see
the government grovel, and make contact anyway, holding our own
dialogue with any ETs that are willing to interact with us. The
evidence that we have indicates that none of the ET races that have
been coming here are hostile to us in any way (although some seem to be
indifferent observers, others are observers who care but are following
a hands-off policy, while many of them are operating on agendas that we
do not and perhaps cannot - yet - understand). (There is however
evidence that the US government as well as other governments, has been
trying subtly to promote the idea that there are hostile and/or
manipulative ETs around as part of their “muddy the
waters” campaign. It is also sad but true that it is to the
advantage of the elite that control the military/industrial/political
complex to be able to point to “threats to national
security”, so that the enormous sums that go into defense
continue to do so.)
Some of the ET’s activities are certainly strange –
but on reflection, it would be amazing if what they were doing made
immediate sense. We should certainly expect them to have a very
different outlook on life from us. But rather than being in denial
about their presence or being afraid of what they are up to, let us
just make it known that we know they are here, and that we want to talk.
In fact, it is my belief that at least some of the ET groups that are
visiting us, are waiting for exactly that! They want us to show that we
are ready to come out of the cosmic kindergarten and tiptoe into first
grade. By the way, I think this metaphor is particularly apt. In
kindergarten, we are almost entirely fed with information, kept
entertained (i.e. distracted) and instructed what to do all the time.
In first grade, we are encouraged to interact with our teachers, and to
ask questions. These ET groups are ready and willing to act as teachers
and mentors. We have to show that we are ready to learn.
This is important for us to do at this time, because the state of our
world is a very perilous one. The violence stemming from fear and
intolerance which has characterized humanity ever since the stone age,
is now infinitely more destructive than it used to be, because the
weapons we are using and the means of deploying them, are so much more
effective. The nuclear genie is out of its bottle, and the bio-weapons
genies are emerging from their bottles. It could be that there are
other kinds of bottle as well.
I believe that we stand a better chance of dealing with our problems of
feeding everyone, having enough electrical power, averting conflict,
and solving all theproblems arising from over-population, if we show
our willingness to accept mentoring and technology help from beings
that have a wider understanding of ourUniverse, who (by whatever means)
have survived their own planetary crises, and who are willing to help
Could we solve all of our problems on our own? Well, maybe. And, maybe
not! Do we dare take the risk that we can do it without help? Surely we
should be pursuing all possible avenues. It seems absolutely undeniable
that the information is out there. Some of the information we get is
likely to be incorrect or misleading, or just plain confusing. That
does not mean that it is not worth getting, because at least some of
what we get will be the genuine article. And, the genuine article will
come with evidence that is verifiable. We will know it “by
the fruit it bears”, by the degree of openness of the source,
and by the degree to which the technology that it comes with is benign.
Unfortunately the majority of the world’s population is
engaged in simple survival, and a high percentage is also enmeshed in
the bigotry and intolerance being taught them by self-serving elites
and priesthoods. But there is a sizeable minority that has some
available time and energy to study, to investigate, and to reach out to
our Galactic neighbors.
The next question is “How do we go about making
contact?” I think we need to do the following, remembering
that we are dealing with beings who are here, and who are perfectly
capable of connecting to the Internet and picking up our radio and TV
* Make a conscious decision to do so. There is plenty of evidence that
the majority if not all ET races that are here, use mind-to-mind
* Watch the sky! Sounds simple but very few of us actually do it. Look
for things that are unusual. If you see something that might be a UFO,
signal it. Do so both mentally and physically (wave, signal by
flashlight or mirror).
* Watch for unusual people. Again, there is evidence that some of the
races that are here, are sufficiently humanoid to pass as one of us. So
there may be some subtle aspect of appearance, behavior or even accent,
that could be an indicator. (I know, you are saying the place is lousy
with all kinds of weirdoes and always has been. True. But there are
different kinds of weirdness, and I guess we just have to use our best
* Use meditation. This may sound strange or scary to some people, but
it really is another way to connect with beings that use mind-to-mind
connection. It is probably more powerful if done in a group.
* Watch for anything unusual at all. It seems that some beings use
indirect methods to indicate their presence. Their idea is perhaps
that, again, we need to show our readiness for contact by showing
increased awareness and curiosity.
* Get involved with organizations like CSETI that actively work to
solicit sightings and contact. This does not guarantee contact of
course – but CSETI has had a great deal of success and has
published several books on their techniques and experiences.
* Form a group of like-minded people, go out into a secluded area at
night, and invite friendly and peaceful contact.
Of course there is no guarantee of success, but it is exceedingly
unlikely to happen unless we try!
LET'S DO IT!
