You might also like this video series by the NY Post titled The Basement Office that takes a fairly level-headed look at some important current and past UFO news stories. Worth watching if you are interested in the subject.
Pass it on!
If you’re developing an interest in UFOs and UAPs, especially in light of the recent government releases about military encounters, you might enjoy a video series I stumbled across. Titled The Basement Office, this is a new series of videos produced by the New York Post.
This series takes a modern look at the subject without the breathless credulity of some programs (I’m looking at you History Channel). I’m really enjoying the series and look forward to more episodes. I won’t say much else about it, you can make up your own mind about the series and the subject matter.
Here is a brief video that acts as a kind of invitation to watch more:
And did you notice the key word I never used?
Zoë Bell and friends put together this video. It speaks for itself. Enjoy!
Cool music too…
Suggested item: a flashlight
Go ahead, grab a flashlight. I’ll wait…
All set? Good. Here is my suggestion:
Go outside, tonight, or some night, or every night. Look up, find a nice cloud-free patch of sky and point your flashlight at it. Turn the flashlight on for a second, or five seconds, or whatever feels right to you.
When you shined your flashlight at the sky you sent an uncountable number of photons out into the universe. Those that made it past the atmosphere without colliding with dust or a water droplet or some other obstacle will likely travel across the cosmos for eternity. Space is so empty, and the distances between objects are so huge and ever-expanding, those photons could go on, literally, forever.
You will have set in motion something infinite and eternal.
So go outside, stare awhile at the stars above you. Take a deep breath, relax, and shine a light. Remember that while everything we experience here on this world exists for only the briefest flicker of time, we can also, in our way, touch eternity.
