Alejandro Rojas October 25, 2 Comments. But if and when that happens, who will disclose the information and how?
What will the public find out? If it is something awful, do we want to know? What are the possible ramifications of disclosure, and how will our world change?
These are the questions authors Richard Dolan and Bryce Zabel tackle in their discosure thought provoking book, Disclodure. Speculation alone, of which this field has no shortage, can turn into chasing your tail, but in this case we have very educated and thorough speculation. At times the book reads more like a report prepared by a think tank.
It is easy to demand, but it seems incumbent upon us as responsible researchers to examine in detail what a.d.avter want, and prepare for what might happen when or if we get it. Dolan is a historian, who has been documenting the history of the UFO phenomenon from to in two volumes, and will bring us up to present day in his third installment, which he plans to have finished by I have always found refreshing his open-mindedness and devotion to unbiased, accurate observation.
Given the task of researching the ins and outs of this phenomenon over the decades makes him ideal for the task of recognizing patterns from the past and making educated guesses about the future.
After Disclosurewho is better at speculation than a Hollywood writer, producer, director, and actor? The entertainment culture is all about observation and speculation, and in true sci-fi fashion, Bryce Zabel has produced his speculation regarding this phenomenon in a.d.adter form of Hollywood scripts.
In a creative mixture of historical examination and science fiction, the chapters of A. After Disclosure are punctuated by fictional vignettes.
For example, one of my favorites was a letter petitioning for Thomas Mantell to get a medal of honor. Mantell was a pilot inwho while in pursuit of a supposed UFO, crashed his jet and died. However, the speculation here is that perhaps in a world after UFO disclosure, we will be giving medals to those who died in UFO-related incidents, rather than suggesting, as the U. Air Force has done, that Mantell mistook Venus for a UFO, flew too high, blacked out due to a lack of oxygen, and then crashed—a conclusion that seems rather disrespectful.
The book is organized in a fashion that is friendly to any level of UFO education. Those who pick this book as their first venture into UFO research will probably need to follow up on some of the references cited. The first few chapters, however, do a good job of giving a quick and dirty synopsis of the history of this research as a base for the speculation that follows.
After the initial education section, the book moves on to presenting several scenarios of how each level of disclosure may play out or affect many different areas in society. How would he get educated on the issue, and who would give him this education? This is just one example of the in-depth treatment given to each topic. The book moves on to examine effects of disclosure on the economy, science, law, education, anthropology, biology, archeology, philosophy, religion, media, and much more.
Are UFOs friend, foe, neither, or all of the above? Whichever it is will have a large effect on what is disclosed, and how the public will respond.
Dolan and Zabel try to examine this as thoroughly as possible, looking at the abduction phenomenon and popular theories by other researchers. How might we interact with these beings? What does it mean if they choose not to communicate with society as a whole?
Several very interesting possibilities are proposed in the book. There are many factors to keep in mind about disclosure. I thought I had given thought to most situations in a post-disclosure world and how things might come about.
Review: A.D. After Disclosure |
However, reading this book sent my mind whizzing with new and different possibilities, and while this is a book about what might be, it helps one think about what the government and the public can do right now to either assist in shaping this bold future, or how to brace for it.
It is difficult to cover everything on such a broad subject. For instance, I thought that the examinations of the abduction scenarios lacked the incorporation of research performed by psychologists and therapists. As Dolan and Zabel identify in the book, this sort of discussion can never be complete, and with as much educated speculation that occurs about the future, so far no one has been able to predict it with one hundred percent accuracy.
Endeavors such as the one these authors have taken on help to shine some light on an important path on which we will inevitably venture. It is the path to a world where it is no longer a secret that we are not alone in this universe, and we are indeed being observed and engaged by civilizations that are truly extraterrestrial.
All in all, I believe this book is an important benchmark, and I hope it brings the internal discussions of UFO researchers to a higher level; one in which we are not just asking the powers that be to make disclosure happen, but where we take an active role in helping to shape an atmosphere that is conducive for UFO disclosure.
In a world plagued with heightened emotional knee-jerk reactions, stepping back and using some critical thinking always turns out to be more fruitful.
