In the wake of the 2009 X-Conference, a gifted viral video journalist has given the exopolitics movement a gift of his own. In an email circulated on the Exopolitics mailing list he divulged the URL of a groundbreaking short film that answers the basic questions those new to consideration of ET/UFO reality tend to ask.
The film, titled Disclosure 101: a beginners guide to the extra-terrestrial issue (below video), is not your average YouTube air guitar lesson or CGI UFO hoax.
Thoughtfully shot by cinematic unknown Jake Gould with a filmmakers eye for composition, it deserves the cliché 'stunning debut'. The sound track - the most often abused aspect of citizen videos - is elegantly low-key, a burst of guitar to get your eyes open at the onset, then style sublimated for substance for the duration.
And the substance is stunning in its simplicity.
A number of key players in the Exopolitics/Disclosure movement giving clear, straight-ahead answers to questions they have so long ago answered for themselves that they tend to forget anyone would need ask:
It's the simple reality of the filmmaking that gets you. Watching this not-so-random sampling of planetary society, what you notice is that they are real people and for them the ET/UFO issue is simply real.
This small film is the starting point for those whose model of reality does not yet include the ET presence in Earth's biosphere to learn why disclosure of that presence by governments and the acceptance of it by citizens is a critical step we must take into a future coming at us at an exponentially faster rate.
It's also the trigger point for Disclosure 2.0, the semantic social networking process that will ultimately render public pronouncement by government officials more admission than disclosure. That process can transform a society's consensus paradigm at the rate electrons flow through wire.
The film itself is an act of disclosure, the medium in which it was released the true gift.
Before we get into that, watch the film and I'll discuss the implications of this pocket masterpiece after you've seen it:

Disclosure 101 is quintessential viral video journalism.
Gould shot the film (as only a filmmaker can say
about a video recording session) in 16:9 aspect ratio on a Sony HDD
Camcorder. He does not own what he considers a professional camera,
but his use of the civilian Sony demonstrates the
maximum-utilization-of-tools-available skill set endemic to great
His work encouraged his father, Hong Kong Exopolitics honcho Neil Gould, to take Jake to the IUFOC earlier this year to meet the people who make the movement move.

The film's genesis was a matter of talent meeting opportunity.
Once at the IUFOC conference, a light
bulb went on in Jake Gould's head and he took advantage of the
chance to meet the advocates his father works with. Armed with
nothing but his Sony HDD, a list of basic questions and a
filmmaker's instinct, Gould set out to capture the moment,
improvising a set out of a hotel room. What he captured is the
essence of a movement. Filming took place over the course of 2 days
inside the IUFOC conference hotel and Gould ended up with nearly two
hours of footage.
Gould then passed the *.m4v file through the stock Apple Quicktime player to boost image quality and change the size of the picture to match YouTube specs.
The result should win an award from
Apple, given their penchant for pointing out how their technology
a fair amount of which was utilized in the production of this piece
- enables talented visionaries on a budget to put their best message
The strategy worked. Within 24 hours of
his initial email announcement to the exopolitics community, Gould
awoke to find his email box crammed of positive reaction and the
film in place on numerous websites.

Timing is everything in life, regardless of what planet you are on.
The 2009 X-Conference will be looked upon as a seminal event, one toward which Paradigm Research spark-plug Steven Bassett has been working assiduously for years.
The exopolitics/disclosure movement reached critical mass in mid April, the culmination of which was Apollo 14 Astronaut and moon walker Dr. Edgar Mitchell's post conference appearance at the National Press Club.
The video of that announcement is the symmetric reflection of Gould's work, representing Disclosure 1.0's direct assault on the truth embargo that has kept the issue of ET/UFO involvement in Earth's biosphere the subject of disbelief via ridicule and denial since the Battle of Los Angeles in 1942 and, by some accounts, far earlier.
at the National Press Club.
Edgar Mitchell is far more than just a cream of the crop test pilot who got a chance to take history's greatest risk and walk on the moon as a reward.
He's a gentle, thoughtful, carefully
spoken intellect, with an engineering degree from MIT. Since his
spacefaring days has mounted a concerted investigation into the
nature of consciousness and reality via his work with Professor
Walter Shempp. Mitchell's latest endeavor is
Quantrek, a nonprofit
frontier science research organization also interested in
He also understands that it's not likely
that the ET/UFO presence is going to share any advanced technology
with humanity until such time as we stop sending fighters armed with
live missiles up to greet them and the governments tell the citizens
what many already know - we're not the only kids in the universe.
Ironically, it also lead to the research
and engineering that build the LEM that took Mitchell to the surface
of the Moon. And the command module in which Mitchell had his
initial epiphany on the return trip, when there was little to do but
consider the vast cosmos around him.
The description of this reality is the quantum hologram, a model that reconnects western civilization with the intuitive mind it lost touch with in the seventeenth century.
Chewy stuff, you say. What has that to do with UFO's and a brilliant
little YouTube film?
Consensus reality gives us a common particle-based 'hard' world with which to interact with each other.
There is a non-local, 'soft'
wave-based reality that Western civilization has become less and
less aware of and increasingly skeptical about. That wave based
reality is the basis for a wide variety of ephemeral phenomena the
particle-based mind doesn't like to acknowledge, much less try to
understand, such as telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, remote
viewing, bi-locality and telekinesis.
It also begins to explain the
phenomenal capabilities of the
UFO craft seen around the world with
increasing frequency - massive, mile wide wings, glowing orbs,
triangles that float at pedestrian speeds in silent hovering mode
and then zip vertically in the blink of an eye.
One of the Big Ideas in quantum physics - something called “wave particle duality”.

To the human mind trapped in classical Newtonian thought structure
that notion is, well..., un-real.
At the conclusion of
the recent press conference, Paradigm Research activist Steve
Bassett informed the Obama administration that if it did not finally
address this dichotomy with some form of disclosure, it risks being
trumped in planetary history by some other nation that will. It's
not a poker bluff. This is consistent with rumblings from CSETI's
Steven Greer who implies he is close to staging an event with a
"major G-8 Country" to recognize ET. That major G-8 country
the United States of America.
