BLACK KNIGHT PROJECT 3
MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
It really does feel like we are being ‘drip fed’ information about the existence of life beyond planet Earth and the words that used to sound pessimistic about contact have changed now to being confident that life will be found within the next decade.
There are also scientists that believe we need some standards in place when attempting to contact alien life. These scientists are simply using trepidation as the probability of a hostile alien race responding to our calls and messages is always a grim possibility.
This to me is another indication that scientists are acting as if the reality of a major revelation about alien life is at hand. This type of conversation once again gives the discussion of confirmation more and more validity.
Pioneers 10 and 11, which preceded Voyager, both carried small metal plaques identifying their time and place of origin for the benefit of aliens that might find them in the distant future. With this example before them, NASA placed a more ambitious message aboard Voyager 1 and 2 – a kind of time capsule, intended to communicate a story of our world to extraterrestrials. The Voyager message is carried by a phonograph record-a 12-inch gold-plated copper disk containing sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth.
The contents of the record were selected for NASA by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan of Cornell University.
In 2008, NASA broadcast the Beatles tune “Across the Universe” toward Polaris, the North Star, commemorating the space agency’s 50th birthday, the 45th anniversary of the Deep Space Network, and the 40th anniversary of that song.
Later that year, a tech startup working with Ukraine’s space agency beamed pictures and messages to the exoplanet Gliese 581 c. Other, sillier messages to the stars have included a Doritos commercial and a bunch of Craigslist ads.
Last October, the European Space Agency broadcast 3,775 text messages toward Polaris. It’s not known to harbor any exoplanets, and even if it did, those messages would take some 425 years to arrive; yet the exercise, conceived by an artist, raised alarm among astronomers. Several prominent scientists, signed on to a statement guarding against any future messaging efforts until some sort of international consortium could reach agreement.
Even if we don’t carefully craft our messages something there have been claims dating back to the 1800’s of possible messages being sent form unknown sources.
In 1954, an amazing story appeared in technology magazine Aviation Week and Space Technology that suggested exactly that. The U.S. military had discovered 2 mysterious satellites in Earth’s orbit.
The Pentagon was reportedly furious about the story. They had not wanted the discovery to be made public. An explanation was quickly put out that the satellites were actually asteroids. Whilst it is possible for Earth’s orbit to capture an asteroid, it’s extremely rare and only happens under certain unusual circumstances. Many scoffed at the Pentagon’s explanation and the widespread belief at the time was that they were artificial.
Had the Russians managed to secretly get something into orbit 3 years before Sputnik, the first publically acknowledged satellite? Or were the objects from further afield in the universe?
By late 1957, the Soviets had just launched their second satellite — Sputnik II, carrying a passenger, a small dog called, Laika. But it also had a more mysterious passenger, because it was been tracked in space by an object and neither the Russians nor Americans had any idea what it was. In 1960, the U.S. Navy’s Dark Fence radar system made an even more spectacular discovery. They had detected a large black object in polar orbit around the Earth, possibly weighing as much as 15 tons.
What was particularly odd about this was neither the U.S. nor the Soviets had the ability to put objects in polar orbit in 1960, and the purported weight was far beyond what either country were capable of getting into space. Like the incidents in 1954, press reports of the discovery caused a major splash with the public. And like 1954, the Pentagon quickly stepped in to kill the story — it was just space debris from a Discoverer rocket launch, a suggestion that did not convince many.
Whatever it was in Earth’s orbit had also acquired a name — the Black Knight satellite. The origins of the name are unclear, but it may have been based on an inchoate satellite launching rocket the British had developed called, Black Knight.
The object would continue to be seen, but it was very unpredictable. It would vanish for long periods before reappearing years later.
The origin of the Black Knight legend is often “retrospectively dated” back to natural extraterrestrial repeating sources heard during the 1899 radio experiments of Nikola Tesla and long delayed echoes first heard by amateur radio operator Jorgen Hals in Oslo, Norway in 1928.
According to the Daily Express, “the noises from 1899 and 1928 remain a mystery, but the possible causes do not so far include an alien satellite, according to scientists.”
While many question the validity of this anomaly, there are UFO and paranormal historians who claim that perhaps first contact with this satellite happened in the 1800’s when Nikola Tesla created a wireless radio box that picked up on sounds that he believed came from outer space.
Nikola Tesla is considered one of the most innovative and mysterious men who ever lived. Tesla’s inventions went far beyond electricity. He made groundbreaking discoveries such as wireless radio communications, turbine engines, and helicopters (although it was Da Vinci who first had the idea.) He was also the inventor of fluorescent and neon lights, torpedoes and the X-ray among other innovations.
By the time of his death, Tesla held nearly 700 worldwide patents. On May 17, 1899, Tesla moved to Colorado Springs where he would investigate atmospheric electricity, observed lightning signals via his receivers. Tesla stated that he observed stationary waves during this time.
The great distances and the nature of what Tesla was detecting from lightning storms confirmed his belief that the earth had a resonant frequency. He produced artificial lightning with discharges consisting of millions of volts and up to 135 feet long. Thunder from the released energy was heard 15 miles away in Cripple Creek, Colorado.
But most importantly while in Colorado Springs, Tesla intercepted strange radio signals that spread through the media incredibly fast. Tesla observed unusual signals from his receiver; Tesla concluded that these signals might actually be signals that have originated somewhere in space.
Since 1896, Tesla believed that his famous wireless transmitter could be used to contact intelligent beings on other planets.
He mentioned these signals in a letter to reporter Julian Hawthorne at the Philadelphia North American on December 8, 1899 and in a December 1900 letter about possible discoveries in the new century to the Red Cross Society, where he referred to messages, “from another world.”
But Tesla was not the only one who was able to intercept these mysterious signals. Guglielmo Marconi, 1st Marquis of Marconi, was an Italian inventor and electrical engineer, known for his pioneering work on long-distance radio transmission and his development of Marconi’s Law and a radio telegraph system.
Marconi also intercepted signals originating from space a few years after Tesla; researchers have since claimed that Tesla and Marconi intercepted the same signals.
In 1937, Nikola Tesla said:
“I have devoted much of my time during the year past to the perfecting of a new small and compact apparatus by which energy in considerable amounts can now be flashed through interstellar space to any distance without the slightest dispersion.” (New York Times, Sunday, 11 July 1937)
In 1973, Scottish author Duncan Lunan analyzed the long-delayed radio echoes received by Hals and others and speculated that they could possibly originate from a 13,000 year old alien probe located near the star Epsilon Boötis. Lunan later retracted his conclusions, admitting he’d made “outright errors” and characterizing his methods as “unscientific.”
In February of 1974, science fiction author Phillip K. Dick claimed that he was being contacted from a computer probe that he claimed it was from the future. Once again he heard an electronic voice that called itself, VALIS. Dick claimed that he was hit by a pink beam of light. It happened while opening the door to the delivery girl from the pharmacy. When asked what VALIS meant Dick had mentioned that a metallic voice claiming to be a probe from the future called itself a Vast Artificial Living Intelligence System.
In the 1980’s, engineer Greg Hodowanec was able to confirm some of Tesla’s claims based on his own theory of Rhysmonic Cosmology while experimenting with a Gravity Wave Detector (GWD) of his own design. By 1988, Hodowanec stated that “Such signals are being received today with simple modern-day scalar-type signal detectors… coherent modulations are being ‘heard’ in the microwave background radiation.
Any l/f type noise detector will respond to this background modulation. However, the experimenter must be careful that he is not creating these responses at the ‘local’ level by his own or other local actions. For example, the detectors will also respond to heart beats, breathing actions, local movements, as well as possible psychic effects. The detectors are easy to make and the experimenter should easily reproduce these results.”
In 1998, compelling visual evidence for the existence of the mysterious satellite finally emerged. The crew of the space shuttle, Endeavour, managed to take dozens of clear high-resolution photographs of a strange black object near their craft.
NASA claimed that what was seen was a thermal blanket that had come loose during the construction of the International Space Station.
However, that didn’t stop observers from speculating about what the large black object was floating above the Earth.
In recent months a new statement from two top mathematicians in the UK, from the University of Edinburgh, have stated that “Alien probes” could very well be operating in our very own Solar System – possibly scouting the area for signs of life and habitable planets.
Could this mean that the now well-known Black Knight Satellite might actually be a reality? And now supported by science?
It appears that way doesn’t it?
Duncan Forgan and Arwen Nicholson have confirmed the possibility that there may very well be highly-advanced ET races taking advantage of the intense ‘gravitational field’ of the stars in order to speed up their high-tech craft travelling through space.
The intriguing mathematical analysis that supports this theory, has suggested that you could quite possibly have a fleet of alien probes out there, with incredibly advanced technology onboard which could self-replicate itself.
The research made by Forgan and Nicholson coincides with a study made by Jacob Haqq-Misra in 2011, where it is suggested that extraterrestrial objects could exist right now in our solar system without our knowledge.
These objects are so advanced technologically speaking that we couldn’t even identify them even if we wanted; perhaps our minds could not even comprehend their existence. Or, could it be that some of these strange UFO’s seen in the skies above us could actually be alien probes, scouting for life?
If highly-advanced civilizations exist out there, they will have highly-advanced radio detection equipment. If they are anywhere near us, then they will have known about us for decades. Messaging them can do no more harm than what we have already done, and it may do us a great deal of good, particularly if these civilizations are waiting for us to make the first move, and if messaging them directly is the signal they need to initiate contact.
Since the times of Tesla and Marconi, our radios have advanced as well, however it may be to our advantage to use some less intricate technologies to send a message out into the cosmos.
Something simple and powerful and who knows – there may be some probe nearby ready to respond.
