Dr. Steven Greer's Sirius Movie-Documentary (2013) Reviewed
Greer's "Light Being" (Moth)
The Birth Of Sirius
Back in April 2012, Dr. Steven Greer (of the Disclosure project) started a fundraising campaign to finance the production of a new film-documentary, entitled Sirius, which Greer promised would change the world and would be a huge step forward for the disclosure of UFO's, extraterrestrial intelligence and free energy technology. Dr. Greer promised that Sirius would revolutionize the entire world.
As part of the documentary, Greer made it clear that he would be having what appears to be some kind of (potentially) extraterrestrial biological entity scientifically examined. The being was allegedly found in the Atacama desert in Chile, before being passed on through many other people's hands and ending up in Brazil, where Dr. Greer went to retrieve the "evidence".
When I first saw Greer's fundraising plan and photographs of the six-inch being I was immediately highly skeptical (though it should be noted that I am a believer in the phenomena, as you can clearly tell from my other articles). I am familiar with most of Greer's work from the past and to be quite honest, the only thing I was impressed by was the Disclosure project (which was certainly an eye-opener but also remains questionable in many ways). However, I wasn't too impressed by the fact that he was charging people $800 on his website for a photograph of an illuminated moth, claiming that it was a light being. To find out more about Greer's previous antics see here.
Unusually, Greer has not defended his position on the issue of the moth sufficiently. He simply claimed that someone had swapped the images and the real image of an alien light being had been lost. Hmmm... seems strange how he would leave it on the website and continue charging people $800 to see it, doesn't it? When I first saw the plan for Sirius I became intrigued and wondered if, perhaps, Greer had a bit more to offer this time (as he promised) - I wasn't willing to pay him for it though so I arranged to watch it with someone who had paid for it.
Funding For Sirius
Although I didn't participate in funding the documentary, I did keep track of it along the way and there were several unusual features that popped up. Right from the beginning I had the suspicion that this was just a money-making scheme and the longer time went on, the more obvious this became and this is also, believe it or not, reiterated in the film. We are yet to see any solid irrefutable evidence that this money is going towards a free energy laboratory, as claimed, but if it genuinely is then I respect Dr. Greer for that. However, I won't be convinced until I see irrefutable evidence.
Despite the main fundraising project at Kickstarter, more and more fundraising plans for Sirius kept popping up on other websites and donations were being taken on their own website(s). Although approximately $50,000 was raised at Kickstarter, it states on IMDB that the budget for the movie was an estimated $250,000. IMDB also describes the movie as a documentary following the work of Dr. Greer and mentions nothing about UFO's, free energy or alien intelligence.
Early on in the fundraising process Greer told everyone who donated towards the project to act as a major distribution network and share the documentary with the world, giving the impression that they would all be helping to change the world for the better.
However, it soon became apparent that what he actually intended to do was start an affiliate scheme so that everyone could earn a little by distributing the movie thereby creating a huge commercial distribution network to reel the money in. Upon release of the film, it became further apparent that Greer would be charging people $9.99 to watch it online and $19.99 for a copy on DVD, along with his affiliates taking part in the scheme.
By twenty minutes into watching Sirius I was bored and felt let down, even though I didn't even pay for it. Thomas Jane's cheesy eighties-style attempt and speaking dramatically was quite irritating and certainly didn't help the credibility of the film.
I was really hoping that Greer had something new and legitimate to offer that was going to blow the lid off the secrecy surrounding UFO's and extraterrestrial intelligence but this just didn't seem to be the case... although if you are new to this subject then there may have been something informative in there. It basically mentions former President, Eisenhower's 1961 farewell speech where he warned of growing influence and power in the military-industrial-complex, Laurence Rockefeller's opinion on UFO disclosure (see Rockefeller Initiative) and some information on the banking establishment and the Federal Reserve before going on to explain a bit about the oil companies and about the power they hold. Greer describes them as "misanthropic sociopaths"
The movie then briefly skips over some ancient mythologies, texts and artifacts that describe how beings with advanced technology came down from the heavens many thousands of years ago and how atomic warfare had happened before in the distant past. There was then a few short statements from a couple of people, though nothing particularly significant, and then some UFO footage, though nothing remarkable or anything that hadn't been previously released.
The most compelling piece of footage shown was probably NASA's infamous STS-48 video. One of the men who actually worked on setting up Regan's SDI (Strategic Defense Initiative), the "Star Wars" program which detected and fired a missile at this UFO, agrees that this object was clearly under intelligent control.
The next part of the movie, which focuses on Greer's CE-5 contact initiative, where he takes groups of people out and teaches them how to use the power of meditation and their mind to communicate with and attract UFO's, I found quite interesting. I have seen footage of other people doing this before and have had similar experiences - it's quite peculiar. Greer claims that you can use remote viewing techniques to find out who's up there, which is also quite interesting considering that it's very possible for subliminal messages to be passed down.
The documentary then goes over a little bit of science to document how free energy and anti-gravity propulsion devices have been invented but have been kept suppressed, before taking a look at some at some conspiracy theories, some of which have never been proven. The documentary then contains a small amount of footage taken from the Disclosure project, which happened back in 2001 four months before the 911 attacks (also see The Man Who Knew Too Much), the most compelling of which was Robert Jacob's statements "I don't give a Goddamn what anybody else says about it, I saw it on film. Phil Klass can kiss my ass, he wasn't there, I was" and "there are things that I know about that I won't talk to you about now because they're top secret and I could get my ass in trouble".
Information is then given by an anonymous source, only referred to as Officer X, who has his face blanked out and his voice distorted, speaking about the overwhelming evidence of unacknowledged special access programs and the trillions of dollars that go into America's black budget. Another brief part of the film then followed, which I could relate to because of my knowledge of the mind, which explained how human perception can easily be manipulated, especially through the use of media (television, radio, etc). This is followed by some small hints at reverse engineering alien technology and some quotes from Ben Rich, former CEO of Lockheed Skunks Works.
The 6-inch Being
The last part of the documentary focuses on DNA analysis of the 6-inch being which was reported to have been found in the Atacama desert in Chile and which Dr. Greer believed to be extraterrestrial in origin. I actually found this part of the documentary to be quite interesting and grounded in scientific fact.
However, it also reminds me of the Peter Khoury case, which is much more intriguing. DNA analysis of a biological hair sample Khoury retrieved during an abduction experience showed a rare Chinese mongoloid origin (of which there are only four people in the world) plus further peculiar anomalies, including deletion of the CCR-5 protein implicated in AIDS resistance.
Although, ultimately, the DNA testing did not prove that the being was extraterrestrial, it did show many peculiar anomalies which have never been seen before on Earth and which there doesn't currently appear to be any logical conclusion for.
Garry Nolan, Director of stem cell biology at Stanford University's School of Medicine, California concluded:
"I can say with absolute certainty that it is not a monkey. It IS human -- closer to human than chimpanzees. It lived to the age of six to eight. Obviously, it was breathing, it was eating, it was metabolizing. It calls into question how big the thing might have been when it was born,"
"The sequence that we got from the mitochondria [energy factories of cells] tells us with extremely high confidence that the mother was an indigenous Indian from the Chilean area. The other thing that immediately fell out of the analysis is that it's male. It probably died in the last century, if I were to make a guess."
Nolan acknowledged that there were no catalogued (ie known) biological anomalies to explain the abnormalities in the being and confirmed that further study was needed. Anomalies detected show that the creature may have died a century ago and that it lived for between six to eight years and the creature also had ten ribs, which has never been seen before. Research is ongoing and updates will be provided at SiriusDisclosure.com.
In conclusion, the most significant parts of the documentary were the alien DNA analysis, the glimpse at free energy and anti-gravity technology and Greer's contact expeditions. The rest of the film basically seemed to be the same regurgitated information that many of us following this field already know about and have already seen and a few videos of well known incidents. Whether more people will take notice this time (without the distraction of 911) or not is yet to be seen but many people already knowledgeable on this subject have been left feeling very disappointed by the movie.
Personally, I think Sirius is worth watching if you are not familiar with this subject, but for people who are knowledgeable on this subject, there isn't really anything new here, even alien DNA analysis has already been done before. Having said that, the free energy technology issue is an important one and I admire him for trying to get it out to the public... but before Greer announced his plans for Sirius, I had been considering producing a documentary on the subject myself and I Siriusly believe that I could provide much more compelling evidence for the existence of UFO's and extraterrestrial intelligence. However, I decided to write a book on the subject first. Some of the evidence presented in Sirius was actually extremely weak.
So, you make the call. Is Greer a money-spinning hoaxster or is he sincere in his intentions?
