Christopher Karl Mellon (born October 2, 1957), is a private equity investor, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence in the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations and later for Security and Information Operations. He formerly served as the Staff Director of the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

So can you tell us from your perspective, what's the chance that these unidentified aerial phenomenon - they are our own military, maybe our own secret weaponry, maybe being developed in the private sector along side the military? What are the chances it's the foreign military versus the chances that it's actual alien?

CHRISTOPHER MELLON: Well, it's very interesting. The report submitted by the Director of National Intelligence said we see no evidence that it's from a foreign government. None of the instances that the 144 incidents they identified could be explained by US classified research programs. So that leaves you wondering then, what hypothesis best fits the facts? And frankly, the alien hypothesis fits the facts better than the alternatives. I'm afraid I have to say that.

    “There are more things on heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” --Hamlet

    Mellon could be right. There are other possibilities. Maybe UAP are a natural phenomenon along the lines of aurora borealis or solar flares. Not similar or the same but a phenomenon that isn't common or familiar to all.

  2. by Donna on February 6, 2022 10:58 am
    No, the evidence doesn't even remotely suggest that it could be a phenomenon similar to aurora borealis. They know they're some kind of craft.

  3. by Curt_Anderson on February 6, 2022 11:24 am
    If it is a craft, why is it more likely to be of extraterrestrial origins than from here on Earth?

    The Russians, for example, are always up to covert and often nefarious activities that we don't necessarily know about. E.g: there is apparently new evidence that they're behind the Havana Flu which has affected our diplomatic corps.

  4. by Donna on February 6, 2022 11:25 am
    You would know that the Pentagon knows they're intelligently controlled craft if you read the information they've released, which I've been posting here and on the old forum since the release of the 2004 Navy incident. In fact they've come right out and said they're intelligently controlled.

    They also know that they're apparently telepathic. In the incident where Top Gun Navy pilot David Fravor engaged with the "Tic Tac" UAP, it took off at an incredible speed and stopped at something called the "CAP Point" which is a rendevous point that was only known to a handful of NAVY personnel, and the UAP reached it literally in a few seconds 60 miles away and hovered there as if to taunt Fravor and the other pilots.

    Luis Elizondo,former director of Advanced Aeronautics Threat Identification Program (AATIP) which was part of the Pentagon, is on record saying that they have in their possession downed UAP and that they "may have biological material" recovered from those craft, adding that he has to choose his words carefully so as not to jeopardize his access clearance.

    It's probably only a matter of time before the Pentagon comes right out and says "We're being invaded by aliens".

    Do you remember the excited talk about canals on Mars? They were visible telescopically to astronomers. They were touted as evidence of construction thus intelligent life on the red planet.

    Those long, straight linear markings on the surface of Mars that are now known to be illusions caused by the chance alignment of craters and other natural surface features seen in telescopes near the limit of resolution.

    If we are being invaded by aliens from outer space, am glad they seem to be shy tourists rather than aggressive conquerors.

  6. by Donna on February 6, 2022 11:41 am
    Btw, to one idea you posted, one of the theories about the aliens' origins is that they're from an ancient breakaway civilization that has evolved underground. During one interview I watched, Luis Elizondo sort if alluded to that possibilty.

    I've watched two very lengthy interviews with him. He resigned from AATIP over a dispute over how much info the Pentagon should release. Elizondo is advocating for a more robust disclosure.

  7. by Donna on February 6, 2022 11:51 am
    I remember that "theory" about the canals on Mars. Galileo was the astronomer who gave them that name. There was never evidence to support the notion that they were made by aliens though.

    Btw, the Pentagon officially considers UAPs a "potential threat", and the U.S. House recently passed legislation to open up a formal channel of communication with the Pentagon in order to keep them up to date with UAP incursions into US airspace.

    Gillibrand's Groundbreaking Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Amendment Included In Final NDAA

  9. by Curt_Anderson on February 6, 2022 12:19 pm
    It was another and later Italian astronomer, Giovanni Schiaparelli, who first claimed to see canals on Mars in 1877.

    Ray Bradbury, H.G. Welles among others wrote about Martian canals. In Robinson Crusoe on Mars (1964), the characters flee from the enemy aliens through the underground canals on their way to the polar ice cap. That's about the time I remember it being seriously discussed in school.

    The arrival of the United States' Mariner 4 spacecraft in 1965, which took pictures revealing impact craters and a generally barren landscape, was the final nail in the coffin of the idea that Mars could be inhabited by higher forms of life, or that any canal features existed.

    BTW, do you remember the Mars One Project we discussed years ago?

    Luis Elizondo had a very interesting response to interviewer Curt Jaimungal's question, "If the general public knew or saw what you saw, what would the next week look like? How would the public react?"

    Luis Elizondo: Somber. I think there would be this big exhale, for about a day. And then this turning inward and trying to reflect on what this means to us and our species and ourselves.

    Curt Jaimungal: Somber almost like meaning a sigh of relief?

    LE: Somber meaning serious. Not - not like Hollywood portrays people partying in the streets and sillyness like that. I think you would have some people perhaps turning to religion moreso. You might have some people turning AWAY from it. I think you're gonna have, uh - at that point, the philosophical and theological questions will be raised, and people will have some serious soul searching to do, no pun intended. I don't think that's bad, by the way. I think a lot of folks that have spent their times in this community being charlatans will have been exposed and they will be probably unemployed and have to change their names because the rest of society will look at them in an unfavorable light. I think that there are probably some unsung heroes that will probably come to light, and the world will appreciate their contributions to this topic.

    CJ: Names that have been announced before when you say unsung heroes?

    LE: Yeah, names that have been announced before. I think the scientific and academic community's gonna have to take a real hard look at itself and see why it repeated the same mistakes it did when Galileo first proposed that the earth was not the center of the solar system. You know, hubris is a big part of that. And then I think, you know, maybe we start the international conversation and say okay, we realize there's some things out there that are probably well beyond our petty discrepancies that we have with each other - maybe we really need to start working together on this - realize that we are really a global family. It doesn't matter where you're from, it doesn't matter what your religion is, or your culture, your color, anything else. We are all brothers and sisters on this tiny little rock we call Earth, you know, this pale blue dot that's hurtling through space.

    CJ: It may unify us.

    LE: Well I would certainly hope so, unless we allow our poor nature to interfere and we look at this as an opportunity to subjugate each other. I would hope that's not the case.

  11. by Donna on February 6, 2022 12:33 pm
    Ah, Giovanni Schiaparelli. Thanks for the correction.

    I don't remember our discussion on the Mars One Project. I believe you that we had a discussion on it, though. I know that Elon Musk wants to build a colony there, built on the idea that humans are going to have to eventually leave Earth out of necessity. Frankly I think it's a dumb idea, as the most uninhabitable place on Earth is still much more inhabitable than Mars, not to mention much less expensive to travel to.

  12. by Curt_Anderson on February 6, 2022 12:47 pm
    I know I discussed Mars One with somebody in the old forum. I don't remember with any certainty who discussed it with me.

    I have a friend who is in Tahiti now. It's remote from everywhere. Everything is expensive or unavailable there because of that. You can imagine how difficult it would be to get stuff on Mars. And the weather in Tahiti is a lot better than weather on Mars.

    “I can tell you, I think it was not from this world,” – Top Gun caliber fighter pilot Commander David Fravor of the USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group

    1. Otherworldly capabilities – These vessels break physics laws;

    2. Otherworldly accelerations and speeds – The recorded speed of such crafts exceed human endurance by nearly 300 times and exceed the speed of human technology in excess of 140 times;

    3. No external effects – The effects on the surrounding environment are less than negligible, they are nonexistent. To us, based on our standards, this is unconcievable.

    4. Required energy – According to the study, in order to produce such accelerations the vessel should have required ten times the nuclear power of the United States by our standards

    So extraterrestrial aliens are able to break the laws of physics?!

    I guess Trump was right when he said aliens are lawbreakers.

  15. by Donna on February 13, 2022 7:25 am
    Actually I posted that.

    Good question. They seem to be breaking the laws of conventional physics, but the maneuvers and "flight" characteristics we're seeing are certainly supported by theoretical physics. We think they could be tearing holes in the fabric of space-time. String Theory proposes that there are ten dimensions plus time. String theorists actually prove that mathematically. So UFOs, or what AATIP and its successor call "UAP" may be interdimensional. Whatever technology they're using, it's to thrust engine technology as thrust engine technology is to the steam engine.

  16. by Donna on February 13, 2022 7:27 am
    "... aliens are lawbreakers"

    LOL! Yeah, I guess so.

    Coincidentally I just received the link below in my Facebook news feed. It's a short video about scientists having made "synthetic dimensions" for the first time.

  18. by Curt_Anderson on February 13, 2022 10:52 am
    I found the following article on "synthetic dimensions". It gave me a headache trying to understand it. Your YouTube video seems to refer to this article...

    ( experience the world in three dimensions, but a collaboration in Japan has developed a way to create synthetic dimensions to better understand the fundamental laws of the universe and possibly apply them to advanced technologies.

    They published their results on January 28, 2022 in Science Advances.

    "The concept of dimensionality has become a central fixture in diverse fields of contemporary physics and technology in past years," said paper author Toshihiko Baba, professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Yokohama National University. "While inquiries into lower-dimensional materials and structures have been fruitful, rapid advances in topology have uncovered a further abundance of potentially useful phenomena depending on the dimensionality of the system, even going beyond the three spatial dimensions available in the world around us."

    Topology refers to an extension of geometry that mathematically describes spaces with properties preserved in continuous distortion, such as the twist of a mobius strip. When combined with light, according to Baba, these physical spaces can be directed in a way that allows researchers to induce highly complicated phenomena.

  19. by Donna on February 14, 2022 8:24 am
    Thanks for the link.

    Yes, it's very difficult reading. I have a bachelor's degree in math, but I can't follow the math that physicists use, especially theoretical physicists. And even physicists themselves have disagreements about the various theories they put forth.

    There are ongoing debates about the role that consciousness plays in our existence. At the core of this debate is the question: Is consciousness a result of or the cause of existence?
