Mirage Men is a 2013 documentary film about how the US government used mythology to cover up their advanced technology.

  • It prominently features Richard Doty, a retired Special Agent who worked for AFOSI, the United States Air Force Office of Special Investigation. [1]
  • Mark Pilkington's book about the project, also called Mirage Men, was published in 2010 by Constable & Robinson. [2]

For Mirage Men (also released on film) Pilkington and director John Lundberg travelled to America in search of the truth behind the UFO enigma. As they spoke to intelligence agents, disinformation specialists and UFO hunters the pair began to suspect that instead of covering-up stories of crashed spacecraft, alien contacts and secret underground bases for the past 60 years, the US intelligence agencies had been promoting them all along, as part of Cold War psychological warfare and counter-intelligence programmes.

Synopsis

From: Mirage Men

How the US government created a myth that took over the world.

synopsis 240UFOs: weapons of mass deception... For over 60 years teams within the US Air Force and Intelligence services exploited and manipulated beliefs about UFOs and ET visitations as part of their counterintelligence programmes. In doing so they spawned a mythology so powerful that it captivated and warped many brilliant minds, including several of their own. Now, for the first time, some of those behind these operations, and their victims, speak out, revealing a true story that is part Manchurian Candidate and part Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

MIRAGE MEN blurbs:

quote small leftThis is an incredible story about deception and tomfoolery in high places. The filmmakers have uncovered a tale that tells us that everything we thought we knew about UFOs is wrong. And the truth - the true truth - is much more interesting.quote small right
Jon Ronson - Author of The Psychopath Test, The Men Who Stare at Goats.

quote small leftReally original in the story it tells... Mirage Men presents an astonishing new perspective on the UFO mythology, and opens up the much wider question of how we know what we know about the world outside... a brilliant piece of work.quote small right

The Genesis of Mirage Men

By John Lundberg

It was 20 March 2003. Just past midnight I placed a call to Washington to speak to 'Don' a CIA Analyst at the The Directorate of Science and Technology.

The call was part of my research for a documentary I was making about a latter-day Walter Mitty character. He had a habit of cold calling high ranking military and intelligence officials to try to glean nuggets of information relating to esoteric subjects such as crop circles, ufos and mind control. It turned out to be a very long... and very strange... phone call.

Just over two hours in Don told me to turn on my TV and switch to one of the rolling news channels, just in time to see the first bombs dropping from stealth fighters onto high value targets in Baghdad.

As I watched I said "Don... surely you have more important things to do right now than speak to me about crop circles and UFOs?!"

Richard Doty

"Forget about the film you're making John, you're wasting your time. You should make a film about Rick Doty, he's a far more interesting character, we've been trying to get to the bottom of what he's been up to for years now, maybe you'll have more luck".

"Me? But you're the CIA..." my thoughts trailed off.

The name rang a vague bell.

"He has a network of very devoted and senior supporters" said Don "If he's not a criminal... he's involved in some very serious government-related activities..."

I stayed silent. The phone call came to a close sometime around 4am in the morning.

Don signed off, "...Unfortunately the answers will not come easy nor in a transparent format. Good hunting!" click.

The next morning after a sleepless night I met up with my friend the writer Mark Pilkington to digest the phone call with him over breakfast:

"What do you know about Rick Doty?"

Mark took a large gulp of his tea...

In the early 1980s Doty had worked for the US Air Force Office of Special Investigations, a sort of internal FBI for the Air Force. Working as a Special Agent Doty become embroiled in one of the strangest espionage campaigns of the post war era. His job was to deliberately inject absurd UFO rumours into the conspiracy underground to throw Russian spies and overly-curious Americans off the trail of genuine top secret military projects.

Doty's disinformation campaign destroyed careers and drove some of its victims insane. His tall tales came to be believed by millions of ordinary people as the hidden truth behind the modern era's greatest mystery."

That morning we decided to take Don's advice and make a film about Doty. A chance encounter on a train brought filmmaker Roland Denning and artist Kypros Kyprianou on board to help put the pieces together and clear away the fog of disinformation. Nine years later, Mirage Men is that film.

Air Force Office Of Special Investigations    From: Amazon reviews

The main focus of the documentary is Richard Doty, a former agent of the Air Force Office Of Special Investigations (AFSOI). The documentary looks at how Doty and some of his colleagues in the 1980s were responsible for helping to foster much of what is today part of the lore that has become synonymous with UFOs. For example, it presents what one interviewee calls the “sad, strange, horrible” true story of electronics engineer and UFO researcher Paul Bennewitz who, having filmed and recorded transmissions from what he thought were UFOs, was targeted by Doty and his colleagues to the point of being driven virtually insane, having come to believe an alien invasion was imminent from underground bases in New Mexico.

The Bennewitz story is just the tip of the iceberg. The documentary explores the efforts Doty and his colleagues made around the same time with others including UFO researcher William Moore (one of the original investigators of Roswell) who made a Faustian bargain that involved him spying on others in the UFO research community in an attempt to get information out of the government and investigative journalist Linda Moulton Howe who Doty handed documents claiming humans had been genetically altered by aliens. There's also an exploration of cattle mutilations with the odd origins of that sideline of the UFO story and ends by exploring the alleged human/alien exchange program Project Serpo, which appears to be just the latest addition of disinformation to UFO lore.

POTUS briefing paper

"These extraterrestrials manipulated DNA
in already evolving primates to create Homo Sapien."
– Linda Moulton Howe from POTUS briefing paper.

 

"How many pictures do you need, how many eyewitnesses? How do you study something that controls possibly even this program?"
– Peter Gersten

"What is known of the truth of them, these other beings? What if the truth is bad? Could be. What if we're their farm animals? What if they eat us psychically? Yeah, I don't know. There's a lot of possibilities that are not good."
– Richard Dolan

Final Scene

quote small leftLet's take one step at a time, you're looking at Richard Doty. And by looking at him, you're taking a glimpse into a whole machine that now has a life of its own.quote small right

Concluding Thoughts

At the core there is something that they want to keep people away from, a real truth.
– Tracy Tormé - TV producer & story editor,
   Star Trek: The Next Generation

This film is about UFO disinformation and the "machine" that has grown up around the lies and decptions. But it does provide a few clues to unravelling the deceptions which surround Unconscious Procreation.

First clue is stated by Linda Moulton Howe,

quote small leftThese extraterrestrials manipulated DNA in already evolving primates to create Homo Sapien.quote small right

Next up is attorney and UFO researcher Peter Gersten,

quote small leftHow many pictures do you need, how many eyewitnesses? How do you study something that controls possibly even this program?quote small right

And finally, from Richard Dolan,

quote small leftWhat is known of the truth of them, these other beings? What if the truth is bad? Could be. What if we're their farm animals? What if they eat us psychically? Yeah, I don't know. There's a lot of possibilities that are not good.quote small right

If true, that Homo Sapiens were "created" by outside intervention, if Homo Sapiens are some kind of "farm animal" and a type of "food" for others, what effect will that have upon people when considering to have children, or not?

This dogma is the ideological motivation behind the on-going de-legitimization of the verfiable contact that people have had with Extraterrestrials (ETs).  This apparent dogma has become the modern equivalent of the corresponding dogma, that "the world is flat", which Church and other elites centuries ago used to champion.

Some are so embarrassed by the topic that they simply refuse to consider any evidence whatsoever, like the Pope refusing to look through Galileo’s telescope.

The Gnostic Theory of Alien Intrusion

The Gnostic Theory of Alien Intrusion

From:  MetaHistory Since the explosion of the ET/UFO phenomena in 1947, speculation about alien intrusion on planet Earth has been rampant. Half a dozen theories dominate the debate, but there is one theory that has yet to be examined.  It did not emerge after 1947, but approximately 1600 years earlier. To be precise, the evidence of this theory came to light through a discovery in Egypt in December, 1945, although the significance of the find was not realized until — guess when?  1947.

By understanding what it means to be human, according to ancient Gnostics, Manipulative Extraterrestrials became revealed.  Manipulative Extraterrestrials seek to confuse a critical appreciation among human beings, of their 'essence' as intelligent sentient beings.
