Ex-French intelligence chief: UFOs could be from other dimensions
Alain Juillet, former director of the French Republic’s Foreign Intelligence Service (DGSE), is one of the first people in authority to speak openly about the UFO phenomenon and the existence of alien life.
With extensive experience in intelligence, he advocated a pragmatic approach and an open mind to solving a mystery too important to be at the mercy of only people who believe in it and skeptics.
Alain Juillet served as the head of the Directorate General of External Security, which is akin to the CIA in the United States, between 2002 and 2003 as well as the Senior Head of Economic Intelligence for the French Prime Minister for the following six years.
Although he had previously not publicly spoken about the UFO phenomenon, the former high-ranking official discussed the enigma in a new French documentary on the subject.
In an interview with Paris Match, Juillet spoke about his appearance in the documentary UFOs: A Matter of States.
Dominique Filhol, the documentary’s director, focused on the puzzling nature of the phenomenon in the film—recognizing the subject’s otherness without making any firm conclusions regarding its nature.

“There is a term which recurs more and more often among specialists in the subject; it is the idea of ‘non-human intelligence.’ This term is interesting because it does not reject the extraterrestrial hypothesis but it does include other theories as to the nature of the phenomenon,” Filhol said.
“The phenomenon has become palpable. I had the chance to be able to film a meeting of the members of the SIGMA 2 commission which studies UFOs in a rigorous and scientific manner or to meet Senator Harry Reid at the origin of the [Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP)] research program on UFOs in the department of American Defense. All these interviews confirmed my intuitions.”
“There is also a current of ufology which studies the links between consciousness and the UFO phenomenon and this is a point that we tackle in the film,” he added. “For more and more researchers, in the case of close encounters, the phenomenon seems to interact with the consciousness of the witnesses.
“This is also what certain fighter pilots of the U.S. Navy who observed these phenomena have related: these objects seemed to anticipate the reactions of the pilots, as if they were able to read their minds.”
In the interview, Juillet agreed with Filhol’s serious acknowledgment of the UFO subject.
“I am originally an intelligence man and when we see things that are inexplicable today, we know that we can explain them tomorrow. It’s just that we don’t have the elements to imagine or understand what’s going on.
“In the particular field of UFOs, not to mention the people who see a flying saucer landing in a field, there are fighter pilots, astronauts, people who are anything but funny and report very precise observations. We must not say that they are nonsense but just recognize that there are things that escape us,” he said of his interest in UFOs.
Juillet said that in the film he speaks to “another aspect…which has been explained by others much stronger than me in the matter: we pass from a vision of the world modeled by traditional physics to another vision based on quantum physics. And we understand these phenomena much better through the prism of quantum physics than with that of current physics.”
The UFO phenomenon might also be in some ways reliant on our perception, he said.
“A fly with its faceted eyes can see dimensions other than ours even though it lives in our world,” Juillet explained. “Perhaps there are therefore things that are in our universe, but that we cannot see in normal times because they are not in our field of vision.
“But perhaps, from time to time, something happens, that a phenomenon passes through our field of perception before disappearing. I’m not talking about ‘little green men’ there. I rather have the impression that I am following the same approach as certain scientists and astronomers who simply say to themselves ‘something escapes us.’”
Ultimately, said Juillet, the secrecy surrounding UFOs isn’t really useful.
“I don’t think secrecy is really useful, unless we discover disturbing things,” he said. “But we note that the phenomenon has not manifested, until now, an aggressive intention. So, there is no reason to worry, we are not in a horror film […]
“However, I do not think it is necessary to talk about it too much because many people will get involved to fantasize at all costs! If we say ‘UFOs are perhaps a reality’ or if we evoke the advances in quantum physics, we will hear ourselves answer ‘oh the poor man, he has gone mad.’ As we get out of the classic relationship that people have with science, it may not pass.
“And there is obviously the possibility that gurus will take up the question and say anything. You shouldn’t over-promote all of this but try to stay scientific and say to yourself: there is something, that is indisputable.”
And if the UFO phenomenon does become widely accepted, Juillet said he thinks that “people adapt very well. If tomorrow morning, we have confirmation that the UFOs come from a world parallel to ours, and well everyone will say ‘well, there, there is a parallel world.’ The day we say it, within five years, everyone will have accepted it as a trivial phenomenon.”
Extraterrestrial life may be hiding in “terminator zones”
In a study published in the Astrophysical Journal, astrophysicists set out to find out if exoplanets could support life.
Astronomers have come to the conclusion that on the surface of some exoplanets there is a strip that may contain water, necessary for the existence of biological life. The terminator zone is the dividing line between the day and night sides of an exoplanet.
Many exoplanets are planets outside the solar system held by gravity. This means that one side of the planet is always facing the star they orbit, while the other side is in constant darkness.
The water on the dark side will most likely be in a frozen state, while on the light side it will be so hot that the water should just evaporate.
The terminator zone would be a “friendly place” – neither too hot nor too cold – in which liquid water could support extraterrestrial life.
Dr. Ana Lobo of the University of California, said: “The day side can be scalding hot, much uninhabitable, while the night side will be icy, potentially covered in ice. You need a planet that’s the right temperature for liquid water.”
“We’re trying to draw attention to planets with more limited amounts of water that, despite not having widespread oceans, might have lakes or other smaller bodies of liquid water, and that climate could actually be very promising.”
“By exploring these exotic climate states, we are improving our chances of finding and correctly identifying a habitable planet in the near future.”
The researchers created a model of their climate by analyzing different temperatures, wind patterns and radiative forcing, and found the “correct” zone on exoplanets that could contain life-supporting liquid water.
Researchers who are looking for life on exoplanets will now take into account the fact that it can hide in certain areas.
Astronomers discover the strongest evidence for another Universe before the Big Bang
The notion of the Big Bang goes back nearly 100 years, when the first evidence for the expanding Universe appeared.
If the Universe is expanding and cooling today, that implies a past that was smaller, denser, and hotter. In our imaginations, we can extrapolate back to arbitrarily small sizes, high densities, and hot temperatures: all the way to a singularity, where all of the Universe’s matter and energy was condensed in a single point.
For many decades, these two notions of the Big Bang — of the hot dense state that describes the early Universe and the initial singularity — were inseparable.
But beginning in the 1970s, scientists started identifying some puzzles surrounding the Big Bang, noting several properties of the Universe that weren’t explainable within the context of these two notions simultaneously.
When cosmic inflation was first put forth and developed in the early 1980s, it separated the two definitions of the Big Bang, proposing that the early hot, dense state never achieved these singular conditions, but rather that a new, inflationary state preceded it.
There really was a Universe before the hot Big Bang, and some very strong evidence from the 21st century truly proves that it’s so.
Although we’re certain that we can describe the very early Universe as being hot, dense, rapidly expanding, and full of matter-and-radiation — i.e., by the hot Big Bang — the question of whether that was truly the beginning of the Universe or not is one that can be answered with evidence.
The differences between a Universe that began with a hot Big Bang and a Universe that had an inflationary phase that precedes and sets up the hot Big Bang are subtle, but tremendously important. After all, if we want to know what the very beginning of the Universe was, we need to look for evidence from the Universe itself.
