Journalist and historian Garrett M. Graff is a Pulitzer Prize finalist. In the first half, he presented his deep dive into the UFO question in light of Congress and other governmental agencies holding hearings on the topic. One of the things he found rather startling was a statement from former CIA director John Brennan, who said in a 2020 interview that some of the phenomena seen in the skies continue to be unexplained and could represent a different form of life. The Pentagon has reinvigorated its investigations of UAPs and determined that some of them are possibly drones from countries like China. But Graff has concluded "that not all of this is adversarial technology, there is more to this phenomenon than any one single answer," and the US government is legitimately puzzled about it.
In terms of whether we are alone in the universe, the research has shown how "the math is now on the side of the alien," given that we've learned that almost every star has planets. "Scientists estimate that there are one billion habitable planets across the universe," he marveled. One of the UFO cases that impressed Graff was the 1964 incident involving police officer Lonnie Zamora, who saw two people beside a shiny object that rose into the air. He found Zamora to be a particularly credible witness, similar to some of the Navy pilots who have come forward in recent years. There are a number of cases where he finds it conceivable that one part of the government didn't know what the other was doing, such as in 1948, when Capt. Thomas Mantell, a Kentucky Air National Guard pilot, was dispatched to pursue a giant UFO over Louisville. Mantell ended up passing out from a lack of oxygen, and his plane crashed. A few years later, a Project Blue Book report suggested that Mantell had unknowingly chased a secret Navy research balloon.
Retired professor Anthony Hamilton had a prophetic dream at ten years of age, which changed his life and led him to believe that we all have the ability to be time travelers. In the latter half, he shared his story and discussed his lifelong pursuit of mind-enhancement techniques that offer greater happiness and prosperity. In Hamilton's dream, he saw into his future, at a time that he would be a university professor, and married to an Asian woman-- all of which came to pass, but not for decades later. In this dream, he was looking down on himself from out of his body and saw himself teaching people about their inborn power to have better lives.
According to fMRI studies of brain function, past memories and daydreams of the future appear the same and could be considered identical, he pointed out. As to how it's possible for one to retrieve information from the future, Hamilton concluded that memories are a kind of connection rather than a recording and can reside in our unconscious. In physics, the idea of the future influencing the past is known as retrocausation, he cited. "The past doesn't shape us," he continued, "our future creates our present, against the backdrop of our past...it's our dreams and our goals and our visions for our future that have more influence in our lives."
