Do UFO sightings spike in times of down market cycles and war? And should freelancers take notice?
UFO sightings are on the up (again) and US congressmen are starting to take notice. Should freelancers and side hustlers do the same?
Revelations about a secret and decades-old government programme that has reportedly uncovered non-human-made aircraft navigated by non-human pilots became public this past week. Why are UFO sightings starting to increase as they have in the past in times of economic and geopolitical upheaval? And could all this alien talk lead to new side hustles for freelancers?
Maybe I read too many financial charts about market cycles, but when I came across a Statista chart on UFO sightings from 1990 to the present day, I couldn’t help but try to correlate the peaks and troughs of the findings with former rocky economic cycles and times of escalating political and military tensions.
Could there be a link between times of uncertainty on Earth and so-called aliens popping in to see what all the trouble is about? Or as some people believe, these non-human beings have long been co-existing with us all along, and their “extraordinary technological progress” has simply kept them mostly hidden until they are occasionally spotted by the occasional pilot or UFO enthusiast.
UFO military whistleblower sparks a new debate
All this news of UFO sightings of course came about following a US Congressional hearing where three military veterans testified in late July about UFO sightings and a “multi-decade” reverse engineering programme of recovered vessels. Ryan Graves, executive director of Americans for Safe Aerospace, retired Air Force Maj. David Grusch and retired Navy Cmdr. David Fravor took part in the House Oversight and Accountability subcommittee hearing on UFOs.
Retired Maj. David Grusch, who went from being part of the Pentagon’s UAP Task Force to becoming a whistleblower, told the House Oversight Committee’s national security subcommittee that he had been “denied access to some government UFO programmes” but that he knows the “exact locations” of UAPs in the U.S, NPR reported. Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena or UAPs are the more technical and military term for unidentified flying objects or UFOs.
Grusch also relayed that this secret programme recovered non-human “biologics” from alleged crash sites.
Grusch said he became a whistleblower, through a PPD-19 Urgent Concern filing with the Intelligence
Community Inspector General (ICIG), following “concerning reports” from multiple esteemed and credentialed current and former military and Intelligence Community individuals that the US Government is operating with secrecy – above Congressional oversight – with regards to UAPs.
In his closing statement during the testimony, Major Grusch, said:
It is my hope that the revelations we unearth through investigations of the Non-Human Reverse
Engineering Programs I have reported will act as an ontological (earth-shattering) shock, a catalyst for a global reassessment of our priorities.
As we move forward on this path, we might be poised to enable extraordinary technological progress in a future where our civilization surpasses the current state-of-the-art in propulsion, material science, energy production and storage.
The knowledge we stand to gain should spur us toward a more enlightened and sustainable future, one where collective curiosity is ignited, and global cooperation becomes the norm, rather than theAir Force Maj. David Grusch
Whether there truly is a link between market cycles and war when UFO activity starts to take off or not, we can now be reassured that when and if we do see something a bit out of this world no one can think we’re crazy for reporting it.
However, instead of reading charts, I may set up a print-on-demand UFO and extraterrestrial-themed T-shirt business as a side hustle. No longer will I make snarky comments about Trekkies (Star Trek fans) or UFO spotters. Hell, I just might be planning our next family holiday next year to one of a number of UFO-spotting hotspots around the globe. That is if I don’t get abducted by aliens first.
