The above clip is part of the promotional campaign for both Jaime Maussan’s Be Witness live presentation –which will be featured on May 5th at the National Auditorium in Mexico city– as well as Adam Dew’s Kodachrome documentary. It shows (alleged) random reactions of passersby in Chicago, after they are shown what has purportedly been claimed to be 2 black-and-white slides of a humanoid being inside some sort of glass showcase –If you want to see a low-res image of one of those slides, click here.
If there’s one thing that’s clearly shown in the video, is how the images seem to perfectly conform with our pop culture assumptions of what an alien being is supposed to look –short stature, slim body and large cranium. What it’s not shown, though, is whether these images are as real as the Santilli ‘alien autopsy’ video of the 1990’s, which was equally hyped as the smoking gun that would finally unravel the ‘Cosmic Watergate’ behind the truth of UFOs and ET visitation.
To say these images are controversial is the understatement of the century. A lot of assumptions have been made with regards to the slides by the people behind tomorrow’s presentation. There’s the assumption that the slides were taken by Hilda Ray, who was a lawyer, a pilot, the wife of geologist Bernerd Ray; there’s the assumption that the couple’s illustrious careers and connections with the top elite of American society in the 40’s and 50’s, would have somehow made them privy to very sensitive material –like the retrieval operations of crashed saucers conducted by the Military.
And of course, there’s the majestic assumption –see what I did there?– that the body (or bodies) shown on the slides are of an extraterrestrial biological entity, AND that these entities were involved in the (in)famous Roswell event of July 1947. That’s enough ‘ifs’ to make your head spin faster than a Reticulan spaceship, which is why some of the most prominent researchers involved in the history of the Roswell affair –namely Stanton Friedman and Kevin Randle— declined to actively participate in what Maussan and Dew call “the biggest UFO event of all time.”
“Is this for real?”, one person asks after being shown the slides. That’s what Don Schmitt, Tom Carey, Adam Dew and Jaime Maussan keep telling us, and they promise to show us all the evidence to back that claim tomorrow onstage and via live streaming. I’ll be there to see whether they deliver the goods… or crash and burn trying.
