NSA Interest in the Paranormal

NSA Interest in the Paranormal

     A declassified NSA draft titled Parapsychology: The COMSEC Threat and SIGINT Capability recently caught my attention when an excerpt was shared by researcher Michael Best. COMSEC stands for communications security, while SIGINT refers to signals intelligence. The six-page document, apparently composed in approximately 1981 and approved for release in 2011, may be viewed in full on the CIA website.

The unnamed author of the draft wrote that dealing with such issues as the manipulation of personnel behavior by psychic means could not be avoided within the work force, including at the NSA. The author continued that psychic warfare was inevitable and that “practitioners” within the Agency were already “functioning.”

Whatever we are to make of such declassified documents, their very existence may offer us some insight into an era in which the intelligence and UFO communities alike pushed the envelope edges. Let’s take a look at some topics previously explored on The UFO Trail and how they might relate to one another. We might consider how such cases as the Gulf Breeze Six may possibly have been more a result of a fringe-friendly NSA and intelligence culture than it was the bizarre, isolated incident it’s often thought to have been. Reviewing such circumstances might help us more clearly understand the evolution of belief systems surrounding UFOs, as well as assist us in ultimately forming more relevant questions.

This Is Where Stardust Comes From

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in the Chilean Andes has made several groundbreaking discoveries since it was brought online in 2011. Able to image the sky in millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths, ALMA can spot emission associated with molecular gas and dust, which are cold and can be difficult or impossible to see at other wavelengths. Using this ability, ALMA has identified dust and gas in a galaxy that formed when our universe was only about 4 percent of its cu

Aliens are the Source of Fast Radio Bursts?

Alien are the Source of Fast Radio Bursts?

      Bizarre flashes of cosmic light may actually be generated by advanced alien civilizations, as a way to accelerate interstellar spacecraft to tremendous speeds, a new study suggests.
Mike Wall

Astronomers have catalogued just 20 or so of these brief, superbright flashes, which are known as fast radio bursts (FRBs), since the first one was detected in 2007. FRBs seem to be coming from galaxies billions of light-years away, but what’s causing them remains a mystery.

“Fast radio bursts are exceedingly bright given their short duration and origin at great distances, and we haven’t identified a possible natural source with any confidence,” study co-author Avi Loeb, a theorist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, said in a statement Thursday (March 9). “An artificial origin is worth contemplating and checking.” [5 Bold Claims of Alien Life]

One potential artificial origin, according to the new study, might be a gigantic radio transmitter built by intelligent aliens. So Loeb and lead author Manasvi Lingam, of Harvard University, investigated the feasibility of this possible explanation.

There’s a secret plan for what we’d do if we picked up a real signal from aliens

In science fiction, a signal from aliens is usually a cue for Earth’s fighter pilots to run to their spacecraft, ready for battle. But in reality, it would be a bit different, according to one of Britain’s top alien-hunting scientists. Dr John Elliot, joint coordinator for the UK Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Research Network, says […]

Life on Earth is premature: Experts claim it could be ten TRILLION years before aliens evolve elsewhere in the universe

Researchers say lifetime of a star is crucial to formation of planet and life High mass stars will die long before life can evolve on nearby planet Those with low mass can survive for 10 trillion yrs, allowing enough time But, they say low mass stars may create too hazardous an environment Scientists have long […]

UFO Sighting in El Cajon, California on 2017-03-10 10:15:00 – The same bumming noise i have been hearing before came back and when the noise left i turned around and saw a light leaving into the clouds

I was smoking in my back yard when i suddenly heard a humming noise. i have heard this noise before it happens sometimes before i go to bed. we’ll the noise came back and and i saw what appeared to be the outline of something invisible above the trees. when i noticed the humming got very loud and then took off and the noise stopped and when i turned around i could see the ball of light leaving. i enjoyed it’s beauty then decided to film it while it left into the clouds. an airplane passed by right after and so did a helicopter. i have video of all 3.

UFO Sighting in Los Angeles, California on 2017-01-23 00:00:00 – Large ship knocked out power to city then possible emp knock out phones small ships descended on powerline took it apart i got to close and one landed behind me aggressive behavior

It was dusk on jan 23. i was at my house in playa del rey ca. my lights dimmed down to orange accompanied by an odd sound like the powering up of a large transformer the opposite noise i expected to accompany lights dimming. the lights came back up suddenly but then went out altogether just a few seconds later. i went to my outside fusebox to check the breakers but only took two steps outside house to notice large craft directly above me maybe only 100 feet up. it was obviously responsible for power outage as i could see other houses go black underneath it as it proceeded out toward ocean. i was initially freaked out and ran to local restauran two blocks away. i didnt believe in ufos until then so i wanted a witness and i grabbed the manager i know mario, who while bitching about his customers with no power was also being physically dragged outside by me. i pointed at large ufo and said what the fuck is that? he looked very alarmed and just stared his hostess came out and she was looking like someone about to scream, which she then did, but pointed opposite the large craft.

the hillside opposite the ocean had at least seven small lights blinking in and out hovering over and under the power lines and transformers that go up that hill. they were moving quickly, i saw that there were entities emerging partially from lights. i was the only one who ran closer. i ran up to foot of hill and began filming until i could tell one saw me and it landed behind me in my alley in an agressive manner i took off back to restaurant and a hub of humaniy. that one took off back to large ship.

i went to my neighbors took a telescope and shot photos using my iphone.
i have a view of large craft without light obstruction as it was blinking i caught one moment with no light emitting.

i will attach a couple photos, look in the bright flash on the one and you will see an enitity shadow, also the shot of the large craft thru a telescope but i cannot attach the best as i do not agree with your policy re evidence turned over. i will also attach one video from the furthest away so you can see its real…Then if you want send an investigator to see the real footage.

unrelated? next few days were odd as i felt very much like someone was watching me and following me. a full week later i fell asleep at 2pm, did not wake until 8 am, i had 4 bruises on each bicep in the same pattern. very odd. nothing since and have not had the someone is following out of the corner of my eye feeling since.

UFO Sighting in Québec City, Quebec on 2013-06-01 17:00:00 – Boule blanche entourã©e d’une aura blanche transparente

J’ã©tais chez moi, c’ã©tait en fin de journã©e, aux alentours de 5pm-7pm. on voyait clairement les ã©toiles et le ciel ã©tait parfaitement dã©gagã©. on venait de souper et avec la famille on s’est installã© pour regarder la tv. je suis sorti dehors pour prendre de l’air, il faisait chaud dans la maison et je voulais observer les ã©toiles.

je suis dehors sur le balcon, les voisins d’en arriã¨re de chez nous s’en allaient quelque part, je m’ã©tais retournã© pour les regarder et ensuite je me suis retournã© dans la direction nord-ouest et sur le coup j’ai vu cette boule lumineuse dans le ciel. j’ai tout de suite remarquã© la prã©sence de la boule parce que quelques secondes avant mon champ de vision donnait dans cette direction. elle ã©tait plus grosse que les autres ã©toiles. j’ai pensã© rentrer dans la maison, avertir ma famille et prendre mon tã©lã©phone pour prendre en photo mais pour je ne sais quel raison, je ne l’ai pas fait. j’avais la conviction qu’on me montrait un truc (sensation d’ãªtre devant une prã©sentation). je suis restã© dehors, observant la boule lumineuse entourã©e d’une sorte d’aura blanche transparente. j’ai regardã© autour de moi pour voir s’il y avait d’autres personnes aux alentours, c’ã©tait trã¨s calme il n’y avait personne.

je relã¨ve mes yeux sur l’objet et d’un coup, la boule disparut de faã§on graduelle. on voyait dans le ciel les autres ã©toiles, j’ai eu l’impression que la boule que j’ai observã© ã©tait pas trã¨s loin, genre une dizaine de kilomã¨tres ou moins.
