UFO Conjecture(s)

The Socorro craft was a Trilateral Commission vehicle?

Peter Brookesmith in his 1996 book UFO: The Government Files [Barnes & Noble] provides a wealth of documents and information about government shenanigans when it comes to UFOs.

Most of the material is interesting, although I usually eschew books (except Nick Redfern’s) about government machinations involving UFOs.

However, in Mr. Brookesmith’s renderings of Dulce, MJ-12, and other far-fetched topics [Page 116 ff.], he includes paragraphs about a book by Bill Cooper in which Mr. Cooper colludes the conspiracy theories of the alleged Trilateral Commission (that one-world, dominating entity that purportedly controls all aspects of human society) with the UFO phenomenon, even indicting the U.S. Navy in the scheme of things.

Passing over the “nonsense” I saw on Page 118 this graphic of the supposed Trilateral Commission’s “Trilateral Insignia” – according to Cooper and elaborated upon in Cooper’s 1989 book, The Secret Government:

Isn’t that one of the disputed symbols that Lonnie Zamora saw on the side of his egg-shaped craft that landed in Socorro, New Mexico, April 24th ,1964?

Is Cooper’s insignia an extrapolation of the non-ballyhooed Zamora insignia, or something more?

Cooper then reports (via Brookesmith) that this is a symbol or insignia that appears on alien craft and uniforms [Page 118] – an AmerIndian teepee?
One can see why rational people become skeptical of all things ufological; the topic is rife with chimeras, fraud/hoaxes, and sheer insanity.

Real UFO researchers would have separated the wheat from the chaff long ago, but no, UFO researchers have been complicit in furthering the nonsense and, thus, we are surfeited today with a mélange or hodgepodge of material that has sunk the UFO phenomenon as far down as any topic can go – an absolute nadir of legitimate topicality.

No wonder Zoam Chomsky and Gilles Fernandez get so livid when the matter is brought up. It insults their intellectual demeanor.



  • I absolutely agree with you. I saw one website connected to this mythological "explanation" that copied your image of the Socorro symbol and cited it as "symbols seen on alien craft"...

    Its the sort of a cooperative building block approach to reducing everything and anything into a single irrational explanation that feeds on itself.

    A magical silver bullet without a smoking gun or a crime scene.

    The psychology that produces this sort of twilight logic is ripe for examination.

  • I'm surprised, Bruce, that Gilles, a cognitive psychologist, doesn't pursue the psychological aberrance in the sightings he chooses to excoriate.

    He'd rather deal with the anomalous atmospheric angle.

  • One take I have thought about in the past is political satire but then several months ago I read an intriguing review of this book which is on my wish list which covers the origins of this sort of behavior on a theoretical basis.

  • Rich: "He'd rather deal with the anomalous atmospheric angle."

    There were no Twilight Zone episodes or b-movies in the 16th century.

    What's the matter? I see only in ufology a matter for Human Sciences.

    How you are considering the Nuremberg case (as the ones who have placed it top 10 in Paul Kimball poll) is imho very revelator how you/they are the victims of a mass delusion (the UFO modern myth).

    Well, that's ufology, after all.

  • I have seen a documentary where one man claims to have found the tombs of Jesus and Hie family..ie..the stone had carved into it..'Jesus, the son of Joseph'. Mary was also there etc. The symbol of the family crest?? The triangle with the 2 small circles beside it..just like this one only a plain triangle without the bottom line.
