Something is wrong. A grey fog stinking of wet wool hovers above my bed when I wake. I hit reset and instantly a citrus glow permeates the Sense-o-Net. Lemon scent cuts through the fug. Bitter-sweet, my six naked limbs dissolve like butter on hot toast. I hit open and the view unreels; a newborn sun rising from the sea, a debonair yacht with a white sail, a labrador chasing a beach ball. Let’s get this show on the road, I hit extraterrestrial to transcode.
We drift in the wind, nomadic, elusive,
mercurial as scraps of tinsel, we hunt
human gatherings, crossing forests, seas
and cities, passing from home to home
we reap your memories, your secrets
that doze like fish in a torpid pool.
Small, almost invisible, you mistake
us for sunbeams, for insects floating
in the sultry night, for snow melting
on your child’s face or candle light
glinting in your lover’s eyes. We are
constant as the air you breathe, entering
your nasal passages, your mouth, seeping
into your skin and every private cavity.
We grub deep into the coils of grey
where you hide. Without you we are empty
as a church without the presence of God.
We can’t love. We can’t hate. We can’t sing.
So when you reach the top of the stairs
and forget why you are there, when you fail
to recall your mother’s voice or the taste
of beer, when you forget the meal you ate
ten minutes before and your own name,
please don’t mind too much.
Perhaps the world is not as we know it. We live in an age of conspiracy theories. Whether it’s the death of Princess Diana, the Twin Towers and 9/11, the veracity of the moon landings, who shot JFK or alien abductions. In the digital age it’s become too easy to manipulate the public with fake news, fear-mongering and subtle propaganda. Once upon a time a photograph was believed to be an accurate record of a moment in time but now we know it is a fiction. It’s increasingly difficult to know where truth lies. We have lost trust in the authorities and the scheming mass media who only give us fragments of the full picture.
Now there is new evidence linking the death of Marilyn Monroe with UFOs. Yes, you heard that right! A recent crowd-funded documentary, ‘Unacknowledged’ directed by Michael Mazzola, focuses on the work of conspiracy theorist Dr Stephen Greer. The film claims the Hollywood star was murdered by the CIA because she threatened to expose the truth about aliens and Roswell. Apparently, John Kennedy told her about his trip to a secret military base to see ‘things from outer space’. It’s claimed that Marilyn had affairs with both Kennedy brothers and when Bobby wanted to end their relationship she threatened to reveal all at a press conference. Stephen Greer has convincing documentary evidence to support his claims. Some time before this film was conceived, a former CIA hitman made a death-bed confession about his part in killing Marilyn and now we know why.
Even UFO sceptics will be swayed by the overwhelming evidence in ‘Unacknowledged’ showing how a secret capitalist-militarist power elite have suppressed information about the existence of aliens and the revolutionary technology that could change the world for the better. Industrialists with vested interests in petroleum products are threatened by developments that would undermine their control and profits. Even the US President has been kept in the dark. The film presents a cohesive argument including classified documents and a vast number of mind-blowing interviews with former top scientists, military officials and politicians. ‘Unacknowledged’ is worth watching if you have an open mind and are willing to think out of the box. The documentary is available to rent from Amazon and Netflix.
