If you’ve seen a UFO and report it the police, you can expect many things: ridicule, questions concerning your alcohol consumption, odd looks from friends,and perhaps a call from the local newspaper looking for a bit of light news for the next day’s edition. But even worse than the preceding events, you may receive a visit from the dreaded Men In Black.
The Men In Black have long been associated with UFO sightings and phenomena. They are reported to appear at the homes of some UFO witnesses shortly after they’ve reported their sighting to the police or media, threatening them to keep quiet. Any materials found relating to a UFO sighting are promptly confiscated. In some cases, they have even knocked on the doors of witnesses before they’ve told anyone else of what they have seen, seemingly knowing everything that has happened before the witnesses had a chance to sort it all out in their heads themselves. The Men In Black deliver their message in a variety of ways, from direct threats to roundabout hints, but their message always carries the same dark undertone: “Keep your mouth shut, or you’ll regret it . . .”
The Men In Black are so called because of their sartorial colour of choice – black. Black suits, black hats and black sunglasses . . . this intimidating colour scheme extends to their cars – vintage models of Buicks, Cadillacs or Lincolns. They have been described as having complexions ranging from olive to grey to dark, with slightly slanted eyes, speaking in an almost computer-like monotone. Their age is difficult to determine, since all of them seem to be verging towards middle-aged. They move in a robot-like manner, and are perhaps best summed up in one word: “odd”.
Despite their numerous appearances and incredible powers of intimidation, finding conclusive proof of the existence of the Men In Black is as slippery a task as acquiring compelling evidence of the existence of the very UFOs they seek to protect.
OUT OF THIS WORLD
The Men In Black definitely seem to be not of this world. Examples of this can be found in reports of MIBs disintegrating coins in their hands and inexplicably trying to sing to birds in trees. In one incident, a MIB sat down on a chair, which caused his trouser leg to rise up. There, apparently grafted to his leg, was a large green wire. In other cases, MIBs are seen crossing muddy fields, yet arrive without a single spot of mud on them. In the most vicious cold weather, they will show up wearing nothing but a thin coat, oblivious to the deadly chill.
The power of the Men In Black cannot be discounted. They have been responsible for the cancellation of Space Review, a magazine dedicated to studying flying saucers, and have even gone as far as gassing an eyewitness during a terrifying interrogation. It is possible that incontrovertible proof of alien existence does exist, whether it is photos, videos or actual aliens, but has been suppressed by the ruthless efficiency of the MIBs. Research has discovered that the lineage of the Men In Black may go back as far as the Elizabethan age.
A FLAWED THEORY?
If they were truly aliens, with the technology capable of enabling themselves to travel between the stars and capable of wiping out the memories of abductees, then why would they waste their time sending bizarre-looking goons in bad suits to knock on doors? Surely a good death ray would do the trick, plus it would save on all that petrol money…
THE MAIN SUSPECTS
In an effort to keep their activities on Earth quiet, aliens would employ the Men In Black to suppress any media attention to their activities by intimidating eyewitnesses of UFOs into fearful silence. From their inhuman way of moving and mechanical way of speaking, the MIBs could be androids, programmed by the aliens involved in the sighting they are sent to suppress. Some people think
that the Men In Black are aliens themselves, possibly Greys or another race, the Horlocks, (a reptilian race without souls). This would explain their remarkable strangeness around other human beings.
Working in conjunction with the aliens, the US government would utilise the MIBs and their attendant oddities to suppress reports of UFOs. The Men In Black would be actors instructed to be as odd and bizarre as possible, therefore adding to the already confused and emotional state of eyewitnesses. The MIB would be untraceable agents, not linked to any known governmental institution, therefore allowing the “Powers That Be” to keep their hands clean of any violation of human rights.
“THE MEN IN BLACK COULD BE ANDROIDS,
PROGRAMMED BY THE ALIENS”
Or was it…
The Planet Sirius The symbol of the Eye of Horus has been linked with secret societies in allegiance with the planet Sirius. This same symbol has been seen on some MIBs, and some Men In Black have said they work for an organisation called “The Nation of The Third Eye”. The role they play in the plans of the denizens of Sirius is unclear.
The perfect way to cover up the fact that Men In Black exist surely is to use Hollywood misdirection and make the world think of them as a fictional story. The films make light of the role of MIBs, but is this a case of fact being portrayed as fiction, possibly a plan thought up by the aliens who really run the movie industry?
