In recent weeks, information has surfaced on the Web about an
alleged U.S. Government military project called “Project SERPO.”
We’ve all heard about reports of unusual and unconventional secret
government projects. Some of them seem so far out that you wonder if
they are real or an “urban legend” floating around.
Yet, many of us understand that people within our government and our
military sometimes face unusual and strange phenomena in the course
of their duties.
According to a mysterious source’s comments on a
recently-developed Web site,
Project SERPO was an effort developed between the late 1940s and
the mid-1960s. It was a joint project between the U.S. Government
and a race of friendly beings from a planet in the Zeta Reticuli
star system. The source claims that diplomatic relations were
established between the U.S. Government and these beings after their
spacecraft crashed in New Mexico in 1947.
Aw, give me a break, you may say. What have these people been
smoking – medical cannabis or something?
We’ve heard and read about unconventional government projects before
such as “remote viewing” intelligence-gathering methods, time-travel
physics research, psychological studies on “magic mushrooms,”
unusual non-lethal weapons and similar efforts. But relations with
visitors from another planet?
That’s not all. Information on
SERPO describes a
project that selected and trained a joint-service U.S. military team
to board a spacecraft of these visitors and go to their home planet
for a planned ten-year stay. And, that in the mid-60s, this was
successfully accomplished. Most of the team members returned and
Remember the movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind?”
Remember when the government teams set up a landing zone for the
“visitors” and how Army Special Forces personnel assisted with
covert logistics? Remember how 12 people in red jumpsuits were
transported to the LZ for boarding? The entries on serpo.org
allege that this is based on fact.
In addition, the information posted there and elsewhere indicates
that the government has been struggling since the 1940s to figure
out how to break this kind of information to the general public
without creating anxiety and negative disruption. According to the
information, various efforts have been underway over the decades to
gradually prepare us for this reality.
Well, do you buy it? It would make a good novel or movie, that’s for
sure. Is it possibly true or is it just someone’s imagination and a
bunch of warmed-over stories from movies, writings and UFO lore?
If there was some truth to it,
how would Americans and the rest of humankind react?
Would we have open minds and
hearts toward friendly visitors?
Would we be afraid?
Would we feel intimidated if
they had more advanced technology and knowledge?
Would we hate them because they
look different and have different beliefs?
Undoubtedly, it would add more
complexity to our view of things. Not only do we have trouble
getting along with other countries and other people who are
different, now we would really need to be tolerant and open-minded.
And, are there other kinds of "visitors" who are not quite so
friendly, or even dangerous in some way?
This could explain why our government officials might have thought
it wise to keep information like this from the general public.
According to information on the serpo.org site, there are
responsible people in and out of government who may now believe that
the time is right for more gradual disclosure of information about
this situation. These people, people with compassion and vision,
could feel that we might now be ready to obtain some understanding
of the situation and react responsibly and with intelligence.
Of course, it could all be bunk. There may be no truth to it at all.
Probably not. Right?
