Synopsis: Our modern civilization is likely to be confronted with the biggest paradigm shift in the perception of reality ever, and through our productions we wish to bring insight from the forefront of this development.

- [Terje] What if

we were not alone?

What if the hundreds

of thousands of people

claiming to have seen

unidentified flying ojects

in fact had been witnessing

extraterrestrial spacecraft?

What if the thousands of

people all over the world

who tell about their

encounters with alien beings

through friendly contact

or even forced abductions

were actually telling the truth?

What if our governments had

known about an ET presence

for more than half a century?

If they were in possession

of alien technology

that had the potential of

changing how our world is run

and they chose to keep

the public in the dark

through a secret campaign

of suppressed information?

What if that campaign acted

as a chain around the ankles

of humanity, keeping us from

rising to a whole new level

of consciousness and

understanding of ourselves,

our planet, and the

universe around us?

And what if that

campaign ended tomorrow?

(beeping and type keys clicking)

- It's one of these

currents of history

that won't be denied.

The truth is going to come out.

And when it does, it's

gonna be explosive.

- So once we get that out,

we will go back and completely

reassemble the 20th century,

rewrite it in a way,

and may have to go back

and rewrite a

significant portion

of the entire last 12,000 years.

- This is the greatest

story in human history.

And the reason it is the

greatest story in human history,

it is the greatest

story of human history.

- The world view portrayed

in this statement

by renowned scientist

Lord Kelvin in 1900,

was shattered only

five years later

when Albert Einstein published

his groundbreaking paper

on special relativity.

The new theories challenged

the current framework

of understanding and forced

the scientific community

to open up to a broader view

on the nature of reality.

This event of fundamental

change, this paradigm shift,

came as a huge surprise

to scholars at that time.

But today we have no

problem following the string

of breakthroughs leading

up to Einstein's paper

and the doorway

into the atomic age.

Lord Kelvin's statement

bears with it the voice

of paradigms past.

We knew that the earth was flat.

We knew that we were the

center of the universe.

And we knew that a

man-made, heavier than air

piece of machinery

could not take flight.

Through all stages

of human history,

intellectual authorities have

pronounced their supremacy

by ridiculing or suppressing

elements of reality

that simply didn't fit

within the framework

of accepted knowledge.

The so-called father

of modern science,

the Italian astronomer

Galileo, was even convicted

by the Catholic Church and

placed under house arrest

for life after publishing

a book where he supported

the idea that the Earth was

not the center of the universe.

His work was then

banned and forbidden

for more than 200 years.

But are we really

any different today?

Have we really changed our

acceptance towards the things

that won't fit the frame?

Maybe there are

concepts of our reality

we have yet to understand?

And if we open our

eyes, maybe we will see

that something significant

has been overlooked.

- My name's Nick Pope.

I worked for the

Ministry of Defense,

a part of the British

government, for 21 years.

And for much of the early

90s, I was responsible

for running their UFO project.

The Ministry of Defense has

been investigating UFO sightings

since the 1950s and has

about 12,000 reports

in its case files.

When I was doing

the job in the 90s,

I received about 200 or

300 reports each year.

- [Terje] In May 2008,

the British government

opened its first batch of UFO

files for public inspection.

The release, made

available on the internet,

created an immense media

and public interest,

with over two million

downloads the first weeks.

Other nations had just

recently opened their files

and more were to follow.

France, Belgium, Ireland,

Denmark, Turkey, Brazil,

Argentina, Mexico.

The most amazing

stories were revealed

of craft, UFO fleets, landings,

and even ET entities being seen.

Often with multiple

eyewitnesses involved.

Even if many of the

reports could be explained

as aircraft, weather balloons,

satellites, or planets,

or a special weather phenomena,

still a large portion

remained unexplained.

- It is clear to me,

given that these things

are seen by police officers,

pilots, military personnel,

given that they are

sometimes tracked on radar,

it is clear to me that whatever

the UFO phenomenon involves,

there are serious defense,

national security,

and air safety issues at stake.

- The question if we are

alone in the universe

is as old as man himself.

But now this question seems

to be more pressing than ever.

Today science has

discovered that many

of our neighboring stars

have similar planet systems.

Over 500 planets have

been registered so far.

Some scientists even claim

that our galaxy alone

may have billions of planets

with Earth-like conditions.

So the idea of us humans being

the only intelligent life

in the universe seems

to be losing its grip.

Over the years, polls have

shown that a rising number

of people believe in

intelligent life elsewhere.

In many countries, far more

than 50% of the population.

The question of

extraterrestrial life

was also among the reasons

why the SETI project

was established

back in the 1970s.

SETI stands for Search for

Extraterrestrial Intelligence.

This project, still ongoing,

is using large radio telescopes

at several locations on the

globe to scan the cosmos

in search for

electromagnetic transmissions

that could indicate

intelligent life.

This is the radio telescope

in Bologna, in Italy,

one of the largest of

its kind in Europe.

This enormously complex

system of antennas

is able to detect even

the weakest signals

from the universe.

And by interpreting

these signals,

the scientists are able to

learn a lot about the age

and the origin of the

stars, the galaxies,

and the universe.

And perhaps also, detect

signals from intelligent life.

- What we are

looking for actually,

is not really a

particular kind of signal.

We are just searching

for something different

from the normal cosmic

noise, so to say.

So we are not searching

for a particular

transmission signals,

but for example, it would be

enough to detect some signals

coming from their

communications, televisions,

if they do have televisions,

or cellular telephones,

or things like that.

Well, we have recorded a

huge amount of data so far.

But unfortunately, we could

not get any signal yet.

(dramatic piano music)

- [Terje] But has the

research been done

for the right type of signals?

While we are looking for answers
