President Obama is bringing on board the Democratic advisor who guided President Clinton through the darkest days of his presidency - an advisor who in 2002 called on the federal government to declassify records relating to UFO investigations. "It is time for the government to declassify records that are more than 25 years old and to provide scientists with data that will assist in determining the real nature of this phenomenon".

Lloyd Pye (1946 - 2013)
Exopolitics Great Britain speaker Lloyd Pye was a researcher into Hominoids and through that work was entrusted with a skull that became known as the Starchild Skull - a skull that through Lloyds tireless efforts was demonstrated to be no genetic match to any known terrestrial organism. His legacy is both his work refuting the human origin hypothesis of the Starchild Skull and his earlier work in human origins detailed in his book "Everything You Know Is Wrong". Lloyd had been battling cancer for some time and passed away at approximately 6:15 PM CT USA on December 9th, 2013, surrounded by family and in his mother's arms. While his passing leave a void in our hearts his contribution to humanity will endure for us all through the years to come.

"This alien hearing is the best thing Congress has done in months" - new.MSN.com.
Congress talked about the search for alien life Wednesday, in a hearing critics lambasted as unproductive. But astrobiology is about more than just little green men.
The House science committee carved out two hours of time on Wednesday to discuss the search for extraterrestrial life. Because the House has just seven days of work left before the end of the year, this hearing idea has generated some pretty harsh criticism. But laments about an unproductive Congress finding time to look for aliens of all things are sadly misguided. Today's hearing is a great idea, and it's doing something remarkable: getting the Republican-led, scientifically challenged committee to seriously discuss an important field of research — and the funding needed to keep it going. So stop making fun of it.

Philip Mantle has worked on and written for many UFO publications around the world over the last 30 plus years. His very first one was the YUFOS JOURNAL put together by himself, the late Graham Birdsall and his brother Mark Birdsall. YUFOS was of course the Yorkshire UFO Society and its journal was produced on an old printer cranked by hand.

“Of course it is possible that UFO's really do contain aliens, as many people believe, and the government is hushing it up. I couldn't possibly comment!”

Intelligence in Science
Within the paradigm of our western culture, if something cannot be demonstrated and tested by repeatable scientific experimentation, then that something is probably not a real phenomenon. Much of what is termed supernatural for example simply means that it falls outside of the paradigms ability to test it.
For the phenomenon we call intelligence, the scientific community does not have a clear definition of what the phenomenon actually is. Whether we are looking at natural intelligence or artificial intelligence – the question of what intelligence is cannot be defined beyond a set of rules more akin to economics – where an organism attempts to allow itself to survive.

“Though intelligent or semi-intelligent life conceivably exists elsewhere in our solar system, if intelligent extra-terrestrial life is discovered in the next twenty years, it will very probably be by radio telescope from other solar systems. Evidence of its existence might also be found in artifacts left on the moon or other planets.”
- “Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs”, Brookings Institution Final Report, 1961
In Arthur C. Clarke’s 1948 short story “The Sentinel” an artifact is discovered on the Moon. A tetrahedral structure made of a polished mineral and surrounded by spherical force-field, The Sentinel is suggested by the story’s narrator to have been created by an extra-terrestrial civilisation, perhaps as a warning beacon for passing space-farers.
The idea of discovering alien artifacts was not limited to the realm of science fiction. Shortly after the NASA was formed, a Washington DC based think tank, The Brookings Institute, while considering the implications of the fledgling space program, suggested that the exploration of our solar system may reveal this type of evidence of intelligent life.

Holes in the Heavens
If you look out toward our galaxy the Milky Way you will see an uneven distribution of stars. In certain parts of the Milky Way, between the stars, things can get a little murky.
In the constellation of Sagittarius for example there are dark patches that become particularly noticeable towards the point of the Galactic Centre. It was the British astronomer William Herschel who, in the 18th Century, described these regions where starlight from distant stars appears to dim as “holes in the heavens”.
