Gene- I preordered, and just received a copy of D.W. Pasulka's (PhD in Religious Studies) new non-fiction book "American Cosmic".....fascinating!!! Pasulka is invited into what she describes as "a fight club" for the highest tier of E.T. ufologists and researchers known as "the Invisibles..." made up of highly influential scientists, silicon valley billionaires, and the highest levels of the MIC. I believe Avi Loeb to be a good example to lend credibility of her accounts.

I am going to have a book review at deepspacepod.com when I finish reading, and I cannot remember a book which I would endorse such as this in a very long time.

Looking forward to a great thread on these "Invisibles"

a proper scientist - definitely a gold standard level. Is he being invited?

btw re: first article - he's only saying that this is a speculation, he's not asserting that it is alien - rather "prove to me that it's not". he's certainly a contrarian amongst his peers.

I just got it as well. I’m interested to read it based on what I’ve heard her say in interviews. She was fairly active on Twitter until recently, when she basically disappeared. I’m concerned by how much she seemed to be on board with some of the TTSA/disclosure cheerleader types.

I wonder to what degree she actually encountered “‘a fight club’ for the highest tier of E.T. ufologists and researchers known as ‘the Invisibles..’ and to what degree such a group might be using her as a tool to spread disinformation.

But I’m overly suspicious.

Yeah, agreed, he's a contrarian and the article reads as though he is enjoying the attention.

I saw another hypothesis (if that can apply here considering we can't really test it) about Oumaumau just today: Oumuamua Could be the Debris Cloud of a Disintegrated Interstellar Comet - Universe Today

yes - that was my take on it - maybe he's seeking to become the next Carl Sagan (or in UK Prof. Brian Cox)? But why not? Maybe we need another "rock star" astronomer :)

well whatever it is, it's headed out now - but if I does a sudden u-turn then I'm a believer for sure :)

I to am a skeptic first. For me, the book has well-assigned lanes for the concepts and topics, which, if not successful can make it hard to find the thesis so to speak. She also adds more information and content to the narrative than borrowed from. Which is providing me with more to scrutinize and ponder, which I guess is the case I am making for the book. I've been stopping frequently to go look up what she just stated.....for me, that's a good book! I am up for discussing the book in a new thread if others are interested.

Thanks for the reference to American Cosmic. I've sent a message inviting the author on as a guest. She sounds very interesting!

On 'Omuamua: The other explanation ( and seemingly the most reasonable one ) for the object's unexplained acceleration, is that it actually has a propulsion system, but the scientific community seems to be avoiding that conclusion like the plague.
