The pandemic, with all of the other sci-fi-esque “plot twists” that followed, by jokes that surely an alien invasion was expected any time soon, being the only event that could top the rest of 2020.
But the alien invasion meme has shown strangely prescient, seeing as mysterious monoliths have started showing up around the world, along with Pentagon footage of UFOs, and now, the unveiling of the “Galactic Federation.”
Haim Eshed, who was the head of Israel’s space security program for nearly 30 years, reportedly told the Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot that aliens have been with us for a very long time, and talk exclusively with the U.S. and Israel.
“There’s an agreement between the U.S. government and the aliens. They signed a contract with us to do experiments here. They, too, are researching and trying to understand the whole fabric of the universe, and they want us as helpers,” Eshed said.
Eshed believes that aliens live in an underground base on Mars, along with some of Earth’s astronauts, and that the “Galactic Federation” isn’t keen for the rest of humankind to know the truth.
Eshed asserts that President Trump knows all about the aliens and that he was “on the verge” of revealing their presence until the Galactic Federation told him to hold off, as humanity needs to “evolve and reach a stage where we will… understand what space and spaceships are.”
I thought we were pretty familiar with those two concepts, judging from decades of science fiction stories and thriving space travel, but the aliens don’t appear to recognize them. The existence of a Galactic Federation might seem a bit far-fetched, sure, but the idea of Trump keeping such an Earth-shattering secret, never saying it out during a rally, is simply beyond the realm of reality.
Eshed isn’t the only former government official to make such claims; Canada’s former Defense Minister Paul Hellyer is renowned for his bizarre insistence that many species of aliens have come to Earth, again, working with the American government.
Hellyer goes into exceptional detail explaining his extraterrestrial mythology, showing that even the most highly educated and well-respected among us are susceptible to delusion.
It surely is lucky for the U.S. that aliens not only understand contractual obligations but seem to recognize the country as the most important place on Earth – it’s almost as if these stories reflect the bland beliefs of ex-government officials!
The most important thing about these claims is the total lack of imagination – imagine a universe teeming with omnipotent aliens, who take the time to have meetings with government representatives, offer carefully worded legal contracts, and name their organization “the Galactic Federation.”
If alien society is just an extension of our own bureaucracy, then perhaps they should stay on Mars – Elon Musk is sure to find commonality with such beings, whenever he gets there.
