Mirage Men – New UFO Documentary Sends Us Deeper Down The Rabbit Hole

Cassandra Sturdy, Conscious Living Editor

ufo-area-51-conspiracyJohn Lundberg is a talented man. Not only does he have a cult following for being one of the world’s best crop circle makers (sorry folks, I really do want to believe) but his new UFO documentary Mirage Men – produced with Mark Pilkington, Roland Denning and Kypros Kyprianou – is being hailed as one of the must-see documentaries of the year.

Indeed. ET visitors, crashed UFOs and back-engineered alien technology… Mirage Men has all the makings of a classic UFO flick you’d want to watch inside an aluminium-foil lined RV somewhere in the Nevadan desert on a dark and stormy night.

But instead of sending you off into the stars to dance with the possibility of unidentified flying extraterrestrials, the central idea of Mirage Men is that the UFO story is really a sneaky disinformation campaign devised by our good old friends the US government. It’s a disappointing possibility that many of us who have attempted to research the UFO phenomenon have often entertained.

mm_press_4But while Conscious Life News readers already suspect the US government is good at bending the truth, when you consider there are over two hundred billion stars in our galaxy – each with an average of six orbiting planets – you can’t help but think that surely, there must be something out there. Lundberg tells me he is of the same statistical mindset. “To think otherwise seems incredibly arrogant,” he said.

Like all great works of art, the meaning of Mirage Men doesn’t stop at the surface level. Lundberg says that although the basic synopsis of the film is about how the US Government have used mythology to cover up their advanced military technology, Mirage Men is actually more complex than that. “It deals with paradox, the nature of truth, how we know what we know about the world around us and the effect stories can have on our lives,” he said.

mm_press_3Of course I had to ask, after everything Lundberg has learnt over the past decade whilst working on the film, does he think we’ve been visited by alien civilisations?

“It’s highly unlikely, I’ve not seen a smoking gun,” he said, “but what’s interesting is that there is a group of people inside the US Government that do seem to hold a firm belief that we’ve had contact, and for me that leaves the door open a crack.”

Hmmm… looks like we’re going to have to make up our own mind. It may also be worth noting that on Lundberg’s Wikipedia page it says he likes to use the role of deception in the process of artistic creation, and that his work centres around how myth and artifice can shape and alter reality. Could Mirage Men itself be an elaborate hoax? Or – shock horror – could John and the other filmmakers even be disinformation agents working for the CIA?

Sigh. As Fox Mulder would say, the truth is out there. Or is it?

    I’VE WATCHED THE CLIP FROM THE FILM —————— I WISH IT WERE
    LONGER, AS I HAVE NO WAY OF GETTING TO TEXAS TO SEE THE COMPLETE FILM ———————- I’M 70 NOW, AND I LIVE IN LONDON ENGLAND.
    THERE ARE, ONE OR TWO THINGS THOUGH, THAT I’D LIKE TO POINT OUT —————– SINCE 1947 OR SO, THERE MUST HAVE BEEN HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS (OR MORE),’ SIGHTINGS’ OF UFO’S,SEEN IN THE SKIES OF EARTH, AND THEY ARE MOSTLY ALL OF DIFFERENT OBJECTS —————————— STRANGE, DON’T YOU THINK?
    I DO NOT THINK WE’RE ‘ALONE’ ————- THE UNIVERSE IS ‘BIG’, ‘REALLY’ BIG. I THINK THERE ARE TOO MANY HOAXERS OUT THERE, MAKING IT HARD FOR THE ORDINARY GUY IN THE STREET, TO DIFFERENCIATE BETWEEN ‘FACT & FICTION’.
    THE OTHER TYPE OF PEOPLE, ‘GETTING ON THE BANDWAGON’ SO TO SPEAK, ARE THOSE CLAIMING TO HAVE BEEN ‘ABDUCTED’ BY ‘ALIENS’. COME ON, HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE REALLY BEEN ABDUCTED? I ONCE READ, SOMEWHERE, THAT OVER 6 MILLION AMERICANS ALONE, CLAIM TO HAVE BEEN ABDUCTED! THESE ‘ALIENS’ MUST BE DOING SOMETHING WRONG ————— COULDN’T THEY GET IT RIGHT WITH JUST A FEW? KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, AND FIND OUT THE TRUTH FOR US ALL.
    BILL.

    I have no doubt that there is some degree of truth to the idea that there has been disinformation by the “shadow government”. I would say think there is a distinction between what we know as the government and the shadow government.
    Yes, it would make sense that very advanced technology is being experimented on and kept secret by disinformation. But it still does not explain the global and international angle of cases that are way outside of US jurisdiction since even before 1947. It also still does not explain certain sloppy elements about the Roswell incident.
    Furthermore, the UFO phenomena has strong evidence going back to the non-technology era. How will the disinformation campaign be explained by that these circumstantial evidence?
    And where is the evidence that Doty is in fact the dis-insformant that the author claimed?
    So while I agree with the idea, but I don’t buy that this is the whole story regarding UFOs as simply US government UFOs.

    Just as there are those who challenge the lack of “irrefutable evidence” and “scientific proof” as it concerns UFOs, there also has yet to be presented any concrete evidence, scientific proof, or a researchable back-story that supports the possibility that the military scientific and technological community had or has the capability to develop aircraft that has capabilities beyond the known limits of physics as applied to materials, propulsion, and energy exemplified by today’s most advanced flying machines; especially, as far back as the 1940′s, 50′s, or 60′s.

    So it’s easy to dismiss the possibility of extraterrestrial visitation, yet the high-level secrecy dominating the government’s role relative to their own inventions lends no more veracity to this story than the evidence presented by the UFO-believing community.

    Being the fact that a rarely discussed possibility concerning UFOs has to deal with the supposition that a highly-advanced civilization may have already been here at the primordial beginnings of Homo Sapiens, living in some undiscovered realm or habitat (the USO observations lends to this theory, as 80% of the ocean’s depths have yet to be explored), we may still need to look beyond the obvious limitations of mankind (as we know ourselves) and mid-20th century science as a source for this overnight level of advancement if it is not of alien origin.

    One possibility (the government) is just as unsettling and literally unworldly as the other (alien life-form), and the former may be the worst case scenario.
