COMMENT: A video has been posted of the demonstration of a small, sphere-shaped flying machine built for the Japanese Defense Ministry and projected as a reconnaissance device.
Clever in design, the technology is relatively simple and the device was built from commonly available stock for a ridiculously low cost ($1400 U.S.)
Over the years we have examined the political implications of the UFO phenomenon, as well as material indicating that disc-shaped flying machines date back to the closing stage of World War II.
With 42% of college graduates in a poll stating that they believed earth had been visited by space aliens in the past, the issue of UFO’s warrants serious examination within a political and sociological context.
Unfortunately, with an intimidating landscape of disinformation and the general view that the entire topic of UFO’s is either vulgar and/or silly, serious examination of the political and social aspects of the inquiry are sparse.
In a fundamental way, the video of this relatively simple, inexpensive flying machine should educate as to the fact that the notion of a “round” or disc-shaped aircraft is relatively down-to-earth.
Disc-shaped flying machines (perhaps married to other clandestine, advanced technologies) could be used for deception, intimidation and manipulation of large populations for the purposes of political and economic control.
Such a stratagem could prove particularly effective with an ignorant, desperate, economically-deprived population living in a time of impending or ongoing ecological collapse.
The Japanese device informs us of the need to be aware of the potential for such manipulation. The possibility that larger and more sophisticated machines of this type have been manufactured by capable nation-states should be carefully considered.
There certainly is reason to be vigilant in this regard:
A respected ufologist has suggested that a mysterious craft sighted over Widnes could have been a salvaged police drone.
Jenny Randles was responding to a recent Liverpool Echo story that revealed a £13,000 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) belonging to Merseyside Police had crashed and was thought to be at the bottom of the Mersey.
She believes the machine could be responsible for a sighting of a ‘stealth orb’ over Liverpool Road in Widnes in May.
Art student Laurence Baker, 17, of Millington Close, had told the Weekly News that a black spherical craft with an antennae had zoomed overhead.
Laurence was confident the craft was not from outer space but probably military. [Italics are mine–D.E.]
Although the police drone was officially lost in February 2010 Jenny believes someone could have recovered and repaired the wreckage then put it back into action. She said a drone is ‘basically a highly-sophisticated model helicopter and not beyond the means of someone with the skills to make it work’.
Merseyside Police has since decided not to invest further in drones.
Jenny said: “I guess it is possible that someone did find it and was able to fix it up and is secretly flying it about and as a result generating UFO scares like the one at Widnes this May.
“It is basically a highly-sophisticated model helicopter so not beyond the means of someone with the requisite skills to get working. But that is, of course, highly speculative. [Italics are mine–D.E.]
“However, the only way the drone could be the cause of the Widnes sighting is if it had been missing from Merseyside Police.
