Remember that Japanese mega-laser I blogged about last Wednesday? (See JAPAN FIRES WORLD’S LARGEST LASER) Well, there may be more to that story than meets the eye, thanks to an article discovered on RT by a regular rader here, Mr. J.C. But we'll get back to that in a moment. First, I'd like to recall the high octane speculation that I advanced in the blog about the laser, for it forms the context in which today's article might be read:

Now, if you've been following my high octane speculation - particularly that which I suggested at my second talk at last year's Secret Space Program conference in San Mateo, CA - this may have a familiar ring to it. At the conference I suggested that if your national security apparatus suspected that in the UFO phenomenon one was dealing with a type I or type II civilization on the Kardashev scale, then what one would do would be to "leverage" systems of those scales as demonstrations of human capabilities. In Kardashev's scheme, a type one civilization requires the energy output of an entire planet, a type two civilization that of an entire star, and a type three that of an entire galaxy. So, what I was suggesting with my "corollaries" was that one would have to demonstrate a capability to engineer systems of a planetary or stellar scale, and engineering such gargantuan energy outputs as in this laser would be one way to do so. And, as the article states, the Japanese want to produce a laser of 10 petawatts output, five times that of this leviathan. (Emphasis added)

Which brings us to Mr. J.C.'s discovery on RT; note that the date and place of the article are identical to the firing of the huge laser: Osaka, Japan, July 29, 2015:

10 UFO-like objects filmed flying over Japan

Needless to say, when I saw this article, the needle on my "Highly Weird Coincidences Meter" shot straight into the red zone.

Needless to say, this also prompts my high octane speculation of the day. While I'm not leaping to the conclusion that this constitutes an "alien swarm", there is a possible pattern here. as I've pointed out in Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations, and again during my second presentation at the Secret Space Program Conference last year in San Mateo, California, the superb research of Robert Hastings (UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites, Author House, 2008) indicates a distinct pattern of UFO interest - one is indeed tempted to say "reconaissance" - in human defense installations, and in particular in human nuclear and thermonuclear weapons, their storage sites, and delivery platforms. This interest extended to both sides of the Iron Curtain during the Cold War, and presumably, given other incidents like the Rendelsham incident in the UK, might be extended to other thermonuclear powers as well.

What we might be looking at here is UFO interest - one is again tempted to say "reconaissance" - in human directed energy technologies and projects, particularly those with a potential military application, which the enormous Japanese laser would seem to have.

This in turn suggests something else. In order for this to be established as a definite pattern of UFO behavior and activity, one would need to develop a large database of cases and observations, such as Mr. Hastings did in his study, with respect to directed energy weapons research technologies, facilities, and platforms. Indeed, one may also recall the remarks of Lt. Col. Corseo in his famous - or depending on one's lights, infamous - book, The Day After Roswell, in which he indicated that such research had been succesful and that it had been used to "stalemate" the situation vis-a-vis the UFO, statements which implied a real though covert conflict going on "up there."

In this respect, one might consider the following story, shared by another regular contributor of articles, Mr. W.M., as constituting, perhaps, the beginning of such a database:

Ex Military Pilot Sees Light Beam Blow UFO Out of the Sky.

In the absence of such an extensive database such as Mr. Hastings has provided in his book, my suspicion is that we are looking at a pattern, one that perhaps has been deliberately kept from public view. (And please note, I am not saying there are not more examples of such cases as the above, but merely that no one has attempted, as Mr. Hastings did, to assemble them into book form and to argue a pattern of behavior and interest. Not being a ufologist, however, I may certainly be unaware of books that have done so).

UFOs and nukes may have been the pattern of yesteryear insofar as there are linkages of UFOs and human military bases and capabilities.

UFOs and directed energy weapons may be the new pattern.

See you on the flip side...
